Usually Xmas Eve. Saves the trouble of fighting with the kids about picking at the gifts.

 For many years as the kids were growing up I put the gifts from US to them under the tree as soon as I got them, wrapped them immediately and put them under there. (santa gifts not until they were asleep xmas eve).

Then when they were done believe in santa we had a dog in the house and he would open ALL the gifts! So then I had to wait and put them out just before it was time to open them haha

Now our kids are grown and moved out and we have xmas not at our house so we just keep gifts in closet (we just have a tabletop tree) and bring them with us when its time to go.

not sure what we will do. we've done it both ways. the tree goes in the basement and DH is the only one that spends any real time down there, so they would be safe if we put them down early

 I had 6 kids and raised my 3 nephews so it made more sense to do it as I got gifts. That way I didn't have a closet full of gifts and I didn't have to hide stuff. Now life is much easier they're all grown and have families of their own and I don't have to worry about hiding things anymore! lol!
