Do Santa's presents come wrapped or unwrapped?

Mine were always wrapped in a different kind of paper or special bag from Santa growing up. I wrap my daughters because well, I like wrapping presents!

So does Santa leave them wrapped or unwrapped in your house?

  • Santa wraps everything but Santa uses a different type of paper. I remember when I was 16 and a live-in Nanny...the family had a 5 yr old and a 2 yr old and the 5 yr old asked "How come Santa wraps his presents in the same wrapping paper you do?" Off the top of my head I told her "because Santa shops at Wal*Mart!!" Kids are WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too smart!!!

  • He did both when I was a kid =] As for now, Santa won't visit until next year, I'm still pregnant with my first lol.

  • I do half and half. You know it takes all morning to open those darn boxes so the items I know they are going to want to play with immediately are the ones that are unwrapped. I use different paper for each of the kids. They think Christmas is the one time of the year when Mom and Dad don't purchase the gifts, lol.

  • I think I remember a few times where there were some that were not wrapped. But mostly they were. I like to use plain colored paper for Santa's gifts so they can easily stand out from the fun paper I usually use :)

  • Santa's presents were always wrapped at my house...thats probably what we will do with Trev too. In different wrapping paper, of course!

  • We always wrap the Santa presents, and this will be the 1st year that Matthew will be old enough to understand some of whats going on (he is 2 1/2) last year, he was just excited to get gifts!

  • My family always wrapped Santa gifts, in different paper. My hubby's family always left theirs open. We actually fought about this, and compromised. When we're at my family's house they're wrapped, but when we are at his, they're not - he hasn't questioned this yet (he'll be four this year) but I figure Santa just ran out of wrapping paper between Texas and Colorado.

  • When I was growing up the came unwrapped. I think we are going to wrap them though for my son.
