In our house Santa leaves one present for each child wrapped and tagged on the kitchen bench next to the empty glass of bourbon half eaten Tim tam and carrot.
The rest of the presents are under the tree from mum and dad.
I thought about putting the present in their rooms but I was afraid that when they got older they would open it before they came out. So being on the kitchen bench I will always get to see them open it

I think it makes the whole "unwrapping" thing take more time, and it's not just a quick ruffle through the sack and it's over.

Different paper for each child, no tags and everything is wrapped. A gift left at end of bed shows them their paper and then they can find their gifts under the tree.

Everything gets wrapped in my house, unwrapping is the best part, especially for DS2 who is only 17 months.

everything gets wrapped in this house all from mummy and daddy , santa doesn't visit so no need to pretend he does, and the kids don't understand what Christmas is yet .

Santa doesn't wrap the stuff in the stockings but he does wrap the other present he brings. He forgot to use different paper this year though but thinks he'll get away with it! He puts the stockings on the kids beds and the other presents under the tree, tagged.
I put the kids presents out late on Christmas Eve, just before Santa comes. They are all tagged. I used to scatter the presents out under the tree and hand them out one by one but this year I am putting them in individual piles for each child.
I'm so excited!
