Re: When do you wrap presents?

I will have to wrap for my kids, my DH, my parents, my siblings and my Grandma.

Wrapping ahead of time since we are having Christmas on the 22nd with the inlaws and for that I have my inlaws, nephew, his Grandma and an Aunt.

I wrap ahead of time. This year I got a lot at the same time and wrapped one day when the toddler napped. I put them under the tree immediately and no one messes with them not even the two yr old. I don't put anyone's name on them tho. In the past I have wrapped early and put out on Christmas Eve.

As they arrive. I wrapped 7 yesterday that were delivered and we just got another box today which I will wrap in a few minutes when my kids are napping.

I do a few wrapping sessions the week before Christmas as I have time, but nothing goes under the tree until Christmas Eve.

I waited one year and I ran out of wrapping paper at 11p christmas eve. Had to search town for someone open that late. Lol I prefer to not wait til the last minute and wrap a little at a time then put back in hiding.

Re: When do you wrap presents?

Extended family gifts get wrapped weeks in advance because they need to be shipped. For DH and DD, I wrap as I get them. They used to go under the tree before DD was mobile, but now they'll be in a closed off room until Christmas.

Re: When do you wrap presents?

I will start soon probably. I wrap for my parents, brother, future SIL, my brother's ex (yes I know that is weird but we are pretty close with her), and nephew and deliver the presents over there usually a week or two before Christmas. I wrap gifts for my MIL, FIL and nieces and nephews on dh's side and deliver over there as soon as I have everything purchased (mostly to clear space in my very small house). I wrap gift from dh and I to the kids, from the kids to each other since they are still young and from myself to dh whenever I get the chance though usually in the week leading up to Christmas. I don't wrap Santa gifts until Christmas eve.

This happened to me one year! It was traumatizing so now after Christmas every year I buy all the clearanced paper and hoard it. Learned my lesson!

Usually the second week in December. But this year I've already done them since the boys started snooping around.
