Re: When do you wrap presents?

I wrap for inlaws and parents shortly after the tree goes up. For the kids, my brother and I have a tradition of wrapping on Christmas Eve. We only see him once a year when he comes from Cali to NC for the holidays. We have some drinks (usually something new he got for me to try) and he writes out the "from Santa" tags while I wrap. Dh is an early to bed type, so he is not into playing Santa after midnight mass at church. I love Christmas Eve, it's always so much fun.

Re: When do you wrap presents?

I start wrapping as soon as we put our tree up. I wrap a few each night after the kids go to sleep. I sit in the living room floor and watch Tv while I wrap . When they are wrapped they go under the tree. The kids love waking up and finding new gifts wrapped under the tree.

I'm done. I hide them in the closet wrapped until Christmas eve. Because of my 11m old and my kitties!

I wrap & hide, but don't curl the ribbon or add bows until I put them under the tree.

I dont wrap, I use gift bags that I can re-use year after year. If its too big for a bag, and I have some reallly big bags!, I'll just put a ribbon & bow on it (again, re-useable!), and put it out on Christmas night. Gifts "from Santa" of course get bagged and hidden and put out Christmas night.
