    How do you store them? Where do you store them?
    Layby is my best friend. This year we will pick them up first week of Jan, wrap and put under tree (our xmas day with kids is Jan 13th).
    Last year we picked them up the last week of school, wrapped and put in our room- kids aren't allowed in there.

    Layby a few things, get them off the last day the kids are at school to wrap.
    The other gifts are hidden in the garage because they never go in there.

    Layby, because I often can't afford to pay the entire cost at once, even on relatively cheap gifts. Then bring them home still wrapped in the black layby plastic, and store them on a high shelf in the spare room where DD has no chance of accessing them.

    Ours are inside plastic tubs in the shed. They are wrapped in blankets so if the kids happen to notice them, they won't realise that it's presents lol

    I store them in the garage. There's no cars in there, just 1000s of dance costumes. Literally. It's very easy to hide presents amongst them.

    When I buy them. But DS is only 13 months. I don't have to hide anything yet. They're usually in our spare room, but our spare room is currently being filled with moving boxes. They're all in bags in our room. It's driving me nuts.
