    Santa leaves presents in stockings.

    Mummy and Daddy (and others) leave wrapped presents under the tree. They appear prior to Christmas day.

    All the smaller things in the Xmas stockings are not wrapped but all of santas presents are wrapped in different paper and with different tags written by my secretary at work!

    Yup everything here. Always was when we were kids too. Lol DD is only 7 months so doesn't understand.

    I'm actually undecided if we are going to do Santa, the whole concept is really creepy

    All DS's presents under the tree are wrapped and from Santa, everything in the Santa sack is from him also, but not wrapped

    All ours are wrapped, tagged and under the tree. Funny thing is we don't put them there until the kids are asleep on Christmas eve. There is never the same colour/design/size paper next to each other or two for the same person. I am very picky about how it looks. Crazy I know.
    Haha to avoid that 'issue' I now buy a big roll of one wrapping paper and wrap everything the same. Gives it cool matching look under the tree & I don't have to fuss over too much of certain colors or colours touching etc. lol.

    My favourite is doing everything silver and blue. Or like getting plain silver & plain blue, and then silver & blue ribbons and alternating... Then my tree for a while was also only silver & blue decorations. I thought it was cool - till I got bored with it after a few years.

    Nope! The Santa who visits our house is very environmentally friendly but my children only get one present from Santa that is left in the middle of the loungeroom.

    personally i dont get the wrapped, tagged under the tree bit. some pp have said that santa uses very differnt paper to parents but i would prob forget or leave leftovers about. and who writes the tag? as DS gets older im sure he will reconise the writing.... i dont really like the idea of sacks for some reason.
    Santa uses different paper here but his presents go on the lounge so I don't have to hand them out. They have their 'spot' on the lounge, go to it and never even look at the tag..the tag is for me so I know who each present belongs to!

    Personally I couldn't imagine not seeing the looks on my kids faces when they saw/opened their presents on Christmas morning.
