If you have young children...keep wrapped gifts hidden, or under the tree??

 I have been pondering whether my kids are old enough now not to touch presents under the tree. I know temptation can be so great, and it is hard to wait! Do you keep your wrapped gifts tucked away, or go ahead and put them under the tree until Christmas?

LOL..My kids are 10, 12 and 14 and I still hide the presents, albiet wrapped, hidden until Christmas Eve. They would drive me crazy with the begging, shaking, and guessing what they are getting.

My DFs are under there, my 2 year old got into one of them. The kids stay hidden, until they go to sleep Christmas eve. And it will stay that way even after they stop believing.

We wait to put them all out Christmas Eve. As they sleep. It keeps them from getting into them and make the holiday a bit more magical.

All are hidden until Christmas Eve. My 3 yr old wouldn't keep her hands off them if they were under the tree!

I hide them, they would rip them open.  I have a 3 1/2 and 2 year old.
