Where are your hiding places!

Once the gifts are all wrapped, do you immediately put them under the tree or do you stash them somewhere?

What about before you wrap them? Where do you keep your gifts safe from prying eyes?

They're in the attic. Even if DS did get in there, it's masterfully arranged to look like nothing but cluttered storage.

Before they're wrapped I keep them in a big box in my closet. After they're wrapped they go under the tree.

Once wrapped they go under the tree. Before that, under my bed, in our closet or just in bags in my room (my boys don't seem to poke around - very odd children in that regard!).

I keep them in the guest room closet.   We don't put the boys' presents out until after they're in bed Christmas Eve so those go back in the closet after they're wrapped.  All the others go under the tree.

 I have them stashed in my closet where I keep the vacuum and other cleaning items and important papers.  Needeless to say, the papers are on the table, vacuum is now in the corner in the kitchen...along with everything else in a new place in the house to make room for the gifts in that closet.
