I have friends who just place santas presents in the stocking or santa sack and don't wrap them.  I on the other hand have always wrapped every pressie.  I even go to the extent of wrapping santa's pressies in different paper that they haven't seen.

So- do you wrap the presents, or do you think that's a waste of paper?

Presents from me are wrapped, presents from Santa go into the stockings unwrapped.

We don't wrap them here.  As a kid, my Father Christmas presents weren't wrapped, and I think it would add more work for me and extra level of danger re: discovering the wrapping paper , etc.  They all go in the Santa sack (or next to it if too big to fit).

Nope.  wrapped ones from people.  

Unwrapped go into Sant Sack.  They have an awesome time digging through finding their bits and pieces.

Some presents get wrapped and others don't.
In our household Santa fills the stockings and brings one big present. Presents in the stockings get wrapped, the big present doesn't.

I'm aiming to be out in the lounge room with the camera ready when DS1 gets out of bed as Santa is bringing him an electric ride on car. He's been begging for the one in Toyworld every time he sees it, so I know it's going to be a hit with him.

Of course! What is the fun of getting presents if there is no paper to rip off?

Yep I wrap them and do special santa paper and different name tags than the others I use (this year I did the name tags on the computer - much easier  biggrin.gif )

My 2 kids only get one present from Santa each so it's really no trouble.

We wrap everything, unless it is too large to wrap (like this year, there will be bikes, so not wrapped).

Santa doesn't have time. Although, Santa only gives little things that can fit in the stocking.

Bingo?

Yup all wrapped up here in special santa paper.

I am the same as you OP, I wrap the Santa presents and make sure it's in paper they have not seen before.

We wrap all presents (in Sannta paper) and all presents are from Santa... I figure there is only a limited number of years that they will believe in Santa and they have the rest of their lives knowing that the presents were all from us, so if they want to believe everything is from Santa, I am happy with that.

#19 BabyBumbleBee

Posted 07 December 2012 - 12:09 PM

Yes, in completely different paper to the other presents too.

#20 Ange

Posted 07 December 2012 - 12:12 PM

All of our presents are from Santa so they all get wrapped original.gif

No,Santa doesn't wrap ours but just puts them in the stockings. All other presents are wrapped and put under the tree.

The same, I tell the kids that I told Santa to save paper, my very earth concious eldest thinks this is brillant!

#23 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 07 December 2012 - 12:50 PM

No, we don't, just pop them in the stocking (pillowcase!)

It's how it was done for us growing up, and I've just carried on.

Yep wrap Santa's presents and make sure to wrap in different paper than the rest original.gif

We do the same as the OP - all presents wrapped, Santa's are in different paper with different tags. Santa only brings one present each, but it is the glamour present and often too big for the Santa sack. How he's going to wrap DD1's bike this year is anyone's guess though. rolleyes.gif
