Pretty Paper is a 1979 album by country singer Willie Nelson. His first Christmas album, it was also his last release of the 1970s.

The album reunited Nelson with producer/arranger Booker T. Jones, with whom he had collaborated on the acclaimed Stardust album released the year before. Some vinyl releases will have the song Pretty Paper as the last song on Side 2.

The self-composed title track had been a hit Christmas song in 1963, when it was recorded by Roy Orbison.
