Where can I get pet-safe wrapping paper?

So I want to be able to let my dogs unwrap their own presents this Christmas, but I am concerned that the dyes and chemicals used to make normal wrapping paper might present a choking hazard or be poisonous to my dogs. Does anyone know if there is such a thing as wrapping paper designed specifically for dogs that is non-toxic and safe to eat? If so, where can I get it?

Normal wrapping paper is fine, as long as they are not ingesting any and its not foil or plastic.

I'd be more worried about the tape than the paper...go skimpy on tape when you are wrapping their gifts.

Simple coupon bond paper or ordinary cartoon tighten by a thread is fine. Don't forget putting some treats inside..

Newspaper, they use soy based ink. Safe unless they eat the whole Sunday edition.

We always used normal wrapping paper and never had a problem.
As long as it is not foil or something of that nature,it should be fine!

Hey I actually found what I was looking for so I thought I'd check back... Thanks for all the helpful suggestions, though! I was at Petco and I found this stuff called Pet Party Printz, it's a wrapping paper that is non-toxic and pet safe, and it even comes with a special adhesive that is pet safe as well... I hadn't even thought about the glues in tape being a risk... You're probably right about the other stuff, but this stuff is only $5 so why risk it? Thanks everyone!

Edit: They have a website as well, you can google it if you're interested.
