    Default Christmas presents question no4

    When do you wrap your presents?

    When you first get them?

    All in one go?

    When I could be bothered?

    I wrap the ones I have around the time the tree gets delivered ( usually around December 1st) then just wrap as I go except all Santa's presents are kept in our office and either my pa or I wrap them the week before Xmas ( my sister and brother and mum bring theirs up as well as santa has the same wrapping paper!) and we all take them home xmas eve ( usually stashed in the car boot until kids are asleep)

    I had a couple days off work at the start of November and DS was still at daycare so I had a list already I went to the shops first thing and bought almost everything. Wrapped and under the tree as soon as I got home. For any online shopping things I buy them start of November.

    I wrap them after I've bought them all (or at least most of them). I left shopping late this year and did a last minute rush last night so they'll get wrapped today.

    Generally most presents are bought in December. I wrap all in 1 go just before Christmas Eve.

    When I have time lol. Usually do it in batches. Currently everything is wrapped but I have a few more things to get. I like wrapping though. Like folding washing I find it is relaxing (I know it's weird).

    I usually wrap all in one go a couple of days before Xmas.

    I still have a number of presents to get, so I'm not ready to wrap yet

    Wrapping is one of my favourite things! Pre dd I used to wait until all the presents were bought, put in a Christmas movie and make an afternoon of it. Now that little miss is getting into everything, wrapping has become a hurried activity completed during naps.

    Usually when i can be bothered. Have had to be more organised this year due to so much going on. Have wrapped what i currently have and have put under the tree. Everything else i still need to buy will most likely be done when kiddo isnt home if its for him
