    Anything that comes in the post or in person goes under as it arrives. I usually buy and wrap on behalf of the grandparents (because they are all interstate and overseas they give me money and leave me to it) and all of their presents, our presents and Santa's presents appear on Christmas morning.

    We like to milk a big entrance for all it's worth

    Anything from the occupants goes under the tree as soon as I wrap it. From my siblings when they arrive and "santa" ones on christmas morning. Mum still has our stockings she made and there's one for each grandchild. She puts them up each year and buys something small for those who come christmas day.

    Coming to you from a galaxy far far away.

    Christmas Eve after DS has gone to sleep for all presents including those from Santa. If we put them out any earlier he would open them or at the very least rip the paper 'just checking them'

    We only have gifts from Santa in this house, whatever anyone else brings its either from them or they might say Santa left it at their house lol
    So we wrap and hide all them until late Christmas Eve then put them out before we go to bed. Along with cookies and milk, plus carrots for the riendeer

    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...
    We are the same. Everybody in our house helps wrap the gifts for family and friends. The kids are proud as punch so never touch or destroy presents. They love to sit and look at the tree and presents.
    Santa presents are never seen or heard of until Santa brings them.
