Maybe we would if they didn't get wrapped on Christmas Eve....

So pretty much we do the night before Christmas morning.

No, we don't. Santa comes the night of the 24th and ALL the presents are from him Also, I wouldn't want the baby to mess with them and I just LOVE the surprise on the kids' faces when they get up Christmas morning!

This year I hope to. We are in Maine for Christmas anyway so they wouldn't show up under our tree, and Santa's gifts stay hidden. But other peoples gifts go under there, grouped by family.

We put them under the tree on Christmas Eve. I also want to see his face on Christmas morning.
Thank you Claire1979!

HA... I admit I am also a last minute present wrapper. I admit sometimes when I would have a school deadline I would be wrapping at midnight or 1am. lol This year my class ends on the 21st, so I might actually be early. Regardless I love to see her light up on Christmas morning. There is NO way I want anything under the tree until then. I cannot wait.

~Thank you Claire for my beautiful siggy!~

only the ones I have the kids buy/wrap for each other and for dh from them, then they're not tempted to play with them, the rest go out on Christmas morning

Lucky mother to five!

I've placed gifts for other family members under the tree, either before they've come to visit or before I ship them. She wasn't tempted by those, so they were safe! Ideally, I would love to set out the gifts that our families ship to us as they arrive and then obviously save the Santa gifts and the ones for each other to put out on Christmas Eve. Not sure if her self-control is there yet...
Thanks to Kiliki for my super cute siggy!

I usually put out the non-Santa gifts a few days before but I might wait until Christmas day this year. Most are sitting in a big box on our hearth (wrapped) right now. Cooper either hasn't noticed or doesn't care. I think if they were under the tree there would be more temptation to try to peek.

I usually do have all the presents under the tree-but this year my daughters Christmas Present is opening all the presents with his claws so I had to put them in a closet.

The ones we have done are on a table in the entryway on a festive tablecloth. I don't trust my beagles with them on the floor.

Santa only brings one gift and fills the stockings. The rest of the gifts go under the tree as we wrap/buy them.
