I usually wrap the presents when I get home from buying them unless they are presents I buy during the summer. Then, I will get them out when I start wrapping the others.

I start wrapping gifts right after the Thanksgiving weekend. My wife and I take care of the kids and we both wrap with the kids for our family members and friends in the month of December.

I start wrapping my presents sometime after Halloween. I keep them in my closet. I don't put the bows, ribbons, flowers, ornament and such on until they are ready to go under the tree, that way they look fresh and not mussed up.

I wrap early and wrap often.

Seriously, I try to keep in under control and get the wrapping done early because I do A LOT of wrapping. I not only wrap the gifts that DH and I purchase for everyone, but each year I take my mother shopping and then I wrap her gifts for her as well. If I didn't stay on top of it all, I'd be wrapping well into the New Year!

I like to get a jump on things so I wrap as I buy...Plus then I put things under the tree as sort of an addition to the decorations. I can't stand that feeling that you get when undone things start to build up around Christmas so anything I can do to try and avoid that, I do!!!

Another wrap-as-you-buy here. I've tried the marathon wrapping session in the past. Too tiring!

Im with the last 3, I wrap as I Buy...

I wait too put the bows ribbon or string on it, Until I'm ready to put it under the tree, I did put them under too early last year, I had to include dusting the gifts as a chore! LOL

as a matter of fact, I ended up taking everything off the tree to dust the ornaments and blow dust out of the tree! That is one of the negative things about putting it up so early. We have so much dust where I live its unreal!

stocking

I've already wrapped about a dozen pressies , I won't be doing anymore present buying until I move to my new house in Beginning of December which is a bit scary for me as I usually start christmas shopping in July as I have 5 kids as it makes it easier for me , but this year is going to be a challenge for me, even gettingthe christmas decorations up is going to be a small affair this time as well, as I put them up early usually, but next year will be a big year I hope....
