Do you wait until Christmas Eve to put the gifts under the tree?

Or do you put them under as you buy and wrap them?

  • yep... otherwise my son would be counting gifts and begging me to open "just one" constantly!

  • My kids are 4, 5, 6, and 8. I put the gifts under the tree as they're bought and wrapped, always have. I like the excitement it builds (so do they!) and we've never had a problem with them getting into them, they've been taught not to.

  • I put most gifts under the tree Christmas eve after kids go to bed. Since they're getting older it gets later every year, but then they sleep later too.

  • We wait until Christmas Eve. We started doing it like that when we got our dog back in 2007. She chewed a corner of a box. And I don't want little hands to try to open anything either.

  • They will go under Christmas Eve night when the kids are fast asleep. I tried to put a few under but my kids opened them up the minute I turned my back
