  • I, personally, do not wrap. I usually just use gift bags, or I'll let the ladies at the mall wrap them. I can't put anything under the tree until the day of because of the dog... He'd eat the paper....

  • That's really early for all your Christmas shopping to be done! I wish I was early, I'm usually out on Christmas Eve for late Christmas gifts. I usually wrap my husband's gifts as soon as I buy them, don't trust him! My DS I'll buy, hide and wrap later on. I usually wrap gifts once our tree is up. Which is short after Thanksgiving.

  • If it relaxes you, go for it! You can always put them somewhere besides under the tree. I used to find it relaxing when the kids were little...

  • Usually when I get them... within a day or so... and keep them in the hiding spot until it's time..

  • I am shopping tomorrow. We won't get our Christmas stuff out until Thanksgiving weekend, so sometime right after that, I'll get everything wrapped. I have to hide it from my kids, and I prefer to have them wrapped in case they do find them. I always remind them of the story of my uncle, who got into the closet and found all his presents and opened them. My grandmother knew, even though he tried to put them all back just the way they were, and come Christmas morning, all the other kids had presents, and he didn't. He got them later, unwrapped - and never did it again. They know I would do that, too, so it's good incentive to not get too snoopy. lol

  • I am normally done with shopping and wraping by now but this year I am way to slow. I try to wrap as I get them
