Do you wrap gifts as you get them?

I usually do the wrapping in 3-4 shifts. Always with a bottle of wine and Christmas music blaring. When the wine is gone or I'm drunk and wrapping becomes too sloppy I stop. (which is typically what happens) lol

DH 'helps' but he sucks at it. So, he usually does other things like organizing the stocking stuffers, peeling price tags off of boxes, and wrapping the easier gifts. He also keeps my wine glass full! He's a good man! lol

That would be the smart thing to do!! Lol I am usually a last minute wrapper, & in the past, have forgotten all I've wrapped so I've forced family to open random gifts then I tell them who it's really for!!

I usually do all at once. I tend to buy through out the year so I wrap after the tree goes up (Santa only brings the stocking stuff here). This year we got them all bikes and so that will have to wait until Christmas eve because I want DH to put them together before they go by the tree.

I wrap as I buy. Haven't started yet though because our tree isn't up. The presents are still in bags and hiding in Daddy's car (we never go in there so they're safe from kids eyes.)
Once we put up the tree, I'll wrap what I have and then try to keep up on my wrapping so it's not last minute.

Can you imagine wrapping a bike? LOL

I thought I was the only that did stocking stuffers gift from Santa? lol

Good hiding place! Hehehehe

We have small attic in our closet, we stash things up there. I may wrap somethings tonight?

Girl I do at once too. Sometimes I'm wrapping as I get them?

LOL DH is a perfectionist wrapper, I'm good enough. But I prefer a gift bag saves times.

Yes a good glass of wine!

I wait until i'm done shopping to wrap. For me it wouldn't make sense to wrap them as I get them because I buy all year round', I have to with two December girls on top of my birthday, my husbands, our anniversary, and Christmas. :)
