  • It took an hour to do the first round sent by her grandmother. I have to do all the stuff we bought still. I will be working on those tonight as well as for the other children in my life but aren't mine. Nieces and cousins.

  • I haven't wrapped mine yet :( and I have 3 kids to wrap for with about 10 presents and 7 stocking stuffers each to be wrapped, so I'm estimating 3-4 hours. DH is taking them shopping for about an hour here pretty soon and I will get all the gifts for one of them wrapped at that point, then try to do the rest tonight after they go to bed.

  • I have two children and I finished them in an hour, maybe hour and a half. We didn't buy many for them, because they're still both really young.

  • I have one and I wrapped them as I went along so I don't know really. I didn't get him a lot because he's still little. I'm going to have to be more organized next year!

  • I normally wait until Christmas Eve because I'm lazy (and regret it every year, lol). I usually start after I'm sure the kids are sound asleep so around 10 or 11pm and finish around 2 or around 4 or 5 hours. That's for 4 kids. This year should take considerably less time since we only got each child 2 gifts instead of the 8 or so little tiny ones we usually get them. I do have to put a dollhouse together, though. That might take awhile.
    I might wrap some tonight because we are, hopefully, going shopping tomorrow and I'm afraid the kids might get nosy and start snooping in my closet if I'm not here. They don't normally but they've surprised me in the past and the gifts are just tossed in there.
