    Good plan. Where do you hide them?

    If I do that, I forget who gets what. LOL. Then I have to tear the paper open and rewrap.

    I purchase all the gifts on Black Friday and wrap them on Christmas even while Christmas music is playing. I do enjoy some hot chocolate a few times during the winter season, especially around Christmas time.

    My daughter likes to open all the boxes we receive in the mail year round. So my hubbs and I intercept the packages so she does not know about them.

    That used to happen to me. I put a tiny number on the tag and then have the name associated with that number on a list.

    I wrap as soon as I have a few trees up, which is the first week of November. There are no kids in our house so it is mainly gifts between me and my husband with a few extended family gifts as well. He and I both wrap and place under the tree as we buy for each other so we are staring at all our presents throughout the season which adds to the excitement (torture) until Christmas Eve! At one point between Thanksgiving and Christmas one of us usually tries to strike a deal with the other about opening one early, but we haven't caved yet! Plus, I need to make sure I stuff presents under each tree because it helps our five curious felines from getting under there and playing with (destroying) ornaments. I love wrapping gifts so much that I wrap all of the Santa gifts for my brother and his girlfriends 4 kids and keep them at our house under one of our trees so they don't have to worry about hiding them and can just pick them up on Christmas eve all wrapped and ready!

    Speaking of wrapping gifts for my child. My crazytime starts Sept.1 with my youngest son’s bday, then my oldest son is Oct. 28, and then my daughter is Nov. 14, and then there’s Christmas! Lots of buying and wrapping! I am truly blessed!

    I'm going with festive gift bags this year, I bought a large assortment from QVC Christmas in July. They can be reused, Eco-friendly

    No set pattern. Some time early wrapping. Some time late wrapping.
