    Oh, boobycino
    My 11 months old is fine with the tree.... Has touched the presents once but got told off by her sister and hasn't touched them again.

    after kids are in bed on xmas eve they'll all go under.

    its just too tempting for the kids till theyre both a bit older.

    This isn't asked in a rude way: but why don't you want the kids to touch the presents?!?

    Dd1 and 2 helped me wrap all of them and took pride in it!! I think because of this they don't feel a need to touch them.. The sit and look at them
    And tell
    Me who hey are for and such... But don't destroy them...

    I guess it depends on her personality. We'll have to wait & see then

    Jasper was total destructo-boy littler so 'not touching' is more 'not opening and chewing on, jumping on or throwing them'

    This year He has picked up the presents, felt them, talked about Christmas presents etc. and put them back. It's the tree he's more keen to pull apart! He. Just. Can't.stop. Himself. Lol. but he's 'careful'.

    My DS hasn't quite got the concept of "do not touch" yet. If I leave them there, they're getting opened! All of the "in child reach" Christmas baubles haven't survived DS so I don't think the presents will stand a chance!

    They're already under, except DS's toys because they're not out of layby yet. I think next year, when he actually takes notice, I won't put them out until Christmas Eve so I can tell him that Santa bought them etc.
    Right now he doesn't even care that they're there, so we thought we may as well just put them out as we wrapped them.
