    I start wrapping the first week of December. By then, the tree is up, and the house decorated. I like to wrap in my bedroom either watching a Christmas movie on tv, or I put one in the dvd player that we own. I wrap a few each day, and the last things I wrap are the stock stuffers.,

    As soon as I buy the gifts, I try to use double sided tape when I can find it and really tape them up good.
    That way I can tell if we have and sneaky peekers.

    I think buying gifts throughout the years is a great idea, but I always forget. I tend to wait till the last minute to get my gifts which you can imagine isn't always a great idea. Maybe this year will be different...

    As soon as we get them. We love seeing the packages under the tree and we have to mail some out, so its nice having them under the tree, for a while.

    I referred to last year's post that I made...last minute, again.

    I'm not going to even lie....we have the best of intentions...never works out. I hope to have wrapping done by Dec. 1, but on Dec. 23 I will probably wrap until midnight.

    Well I think I will leave wrapping till December - I have almost everything for my daughters Xmas - except one that my sister is bringing down that doesn't need wrapping - just a bow.......and one that I am picking up tomorrow when I go to work.
    One of my husbands I am picking up in November but he will be with me so he will know he has it. And I havent even started my son yet! So he will be to tackle in November!

    I usually wrap as I need them!! If I'm getting together with friends before Christmas, I'll wrap their gift as I'm going to see them. The gifts I need for Christmas Eve normally get wrapped on the 23rd or the afternoon of the 24th. Then I set them around the tree & take a pic! Sometimes I have a few wrapped ahead of time & set them under the tree but it's usually last minute. :rolleyes:

    This is last years annual Christmas Eve picture...

    I start to wrap my presents usually this month, and have a bunch ready for when our tree is put up. I started wrapping a bunch of presents last week, so I have a stack of them ready!

    My wife enjoys wrapping the gifts and having a theme of wrapping paper. We usually buy all the gifts, the "special" wrapping paper, and do it all at once. We usually have all the wrapping done at least 1 week before christmas.
