Find the best wrapping paper

Evaluate strength and durability of materials that Santa could use as wrapping paper

Santa has a problem. On Christmas Eve, he packs all the presents into his sack to deliver to children around the world. He’s found, though, that the presents get a bit bashed about on the way and that some wrapping paper starts to tear. It doesn’t look good to put a present which is battered and partly unwrapped under a tree, so he needs your help. You need to find out which is the best wrapping paper for Santa to use and then write to tell him.
