So when do you take your gifts home
When I buy them
Have them on lay by to the week of Christmas, so the kids can't find them
How do you store them? Where do you store them?

Christmas present question no3

I never layby stuff. I used to work in layby at Big W when I was at uni and lost track of the number of times a parcel couldn't be found on Xmas eve. I have no idea how stuff got lost, bit it did. Even trampoline boxes would go AWOL 😱
Santa ones get stored in random places, but our kids aren't old enough to start looking for them yet. We'll have to get creative when that happens. Other gifts just get kept in our WIR or under the bed until I wrap them.

I stash all the presents I buy for everyone in the top of my spare bedroom wardrobe but any presents from santa are taken to my office as they are bought and stashed in the stationary cupboard! DH brings them home xmas eve and puts them
In the garage or in the boots of our cars

My DS is not 3 yet so my answer will probably change in a few years. I don't layby. I stash at the top of my cupboard until the tree is out. Then it goes under the tree.

Shoved in the spare room. Next year I'll probably have to hide them.

Take them home as I buy them or order online. They get stored in my walk in wardrobe and once wrapped the kids get put in the spare room (the kids never go in there) and all the others go under the tree.

I take them home as soon as I buy them. Dd is only 17 mo so I haven't had to worry about hiding things. All the presents are just in the spare room with the door shut.

Umm normally we don't even buy the gifts until Xmas eve. Once or twice with big items (trampoline etc) we have bought them a day or 2 earlier and stored them at my grandads in the shed.
This year we have put them on layby.
It doesn't matter where we hide them in our house, dd1 will find them.
We also don't put anything under the tree (on the rare event we have one) until Xmas morning. Again... Dd1.
