    Default Christmas present no1

    When putting presents under the tree. How do you a range them.
    In a pile.
    Around the base of the tree
    So every present can be seen
    Just chuck them under there any old way.
    Some different. Please explain

    How long does it take you?

    Arranged around the base with every present showing. It's an art and it takes a lot of time! 😊

    Just chuck them under. Our tree sits on a brick part on top of the hearth, about a metre off the ground, and doesn't have a heap of room around the base, so it's just however they fit. Santa presents get left on the floor/chair near the hearth.

    Around the base of the tree, small items in hidden in the tree (like a treasure hunt). Takes maybe 5-10 mins

    We each have a sack and the gifts go in there, near the tree.
    Big gift from us goes to the side.
    Stockings are by the tv

    Whoever is nearest to the tree when we've completed wrapping gets to put them under the tree.
    This year it was our 2yo DS so it kind of looks like someone threw them violently at the tree.
