Re: When do you wrap presents?

DS and DH can now "wrap" what they buy and there is no mess later! I was never really a fan of wrapping gifts so it really simplifies things!

Yep, we use fabric bags here too. I have sewed the ribbon into the seam, so every bag always has a ribbon. I punch a hole in the name tag, thread it on the ribbon and tie, so simple!

Usually we wrap Christmas eve, it doesn't take long using the fabric bags, but this year we'll be camping over Christmas so I suppose I should get onto it soon.
