If Santa asks you to help out, do you wrap stocking stuffers or not?

    I appreciate I'm about a week behind in asking this question but I want to be on the ball early for next year!!! Occasionally I find that Santa needs a little help in filling up those stockings so I've been known to pitch in when required. Long standing argument with my BFF who insists Santa wraps each article and me who equally insists he hasn't got the time, so generally leaves them unwrapped.

    Thoughts??

    Santa wraps our stocking stuffers. I guess he goes by who wants them wrapped and who doesn't!

    The reason they go in the stocking...is because they are NOT wrapped.

    Hmmmm I guess I do both actually. I never really think about it. Sometimes the stocking fillers are things already nicely packaged so I stick them in for my husband. This year I wrapped a couple for the kids and left a couple (candy/chocolates) already in nice boxes unwrapped in their stockings. I guess I make more effort for the kids as they love unwrapping. I have never really made a conscious decision about it though , I just go with whatever lol!

    Everything else is wrapped though!

    It depends on the item and how much time Santa tells me I have to complete my helper duties. A yo-yo, silly putty, Crazy Eights cards, etc don't usually get wrapped. Santa taught me a long time ago that many kids like the joy of just pulling those kind of things out of the stocking without having to unwrap them.

    Things like a CD, DVD, etc, I wrap.

    I agree with Jeff, although this year St. Nick brought my hubby an Echo Dot & it was wrapped. Hmmm

    I think either idea is great. At our house, treats and gifts inside our stockings are always unwrapped!

    I love to wrap gifts...my kids like to unwrap gifts, and I hate wasting those odd bits of wrapping paper I always end up with :D Yep, I wrap everything. If we had a cat, I'd probably wrap that too!
