I keep reading on FB about people having wrapped all their pressies already, this seems wrong to me!
I like to start wrapping a week or so before Christmas, with the Christmas music channel on and a glass of Baileys. Christmas tree lights a-twinkling! Its an important part of the run up to Christmas for me!
When does everyone else do it?

I'm the same as you I also like to do it closer to Christmas

I'm the same as you, I like to wait until a week or so before Christmas when I'm proper in the mood, kids are in bed, I have the Christmas music on, the Christmas lights on and have some nice wine while I wrap. I usually wait until H is night shift so I can do it in peace but this year he's off from the 15th.
I wrap the presents that go under the tree a day or two before the tree goes up but its not the same.

I'm with the majority, it's how I get to feel festive. Even if it's stressful and I'm running behind, I like to do it quite late :)

SW I like doing it when my H is working too as he moans I'm too 'rustly' !

Ha ha my H just shakes his head at me and mutters under his breath about how much I've bought etc.

I did get my H to help one year but his wrapping wasn't up to my standard lol

God my H would have a fit if I roped him in and it defo wouldn't be up to my standards.

I like to do it close to Christmas too. When the tree is up so they can go straight under. I love wrapping presents and adding bows, sparkly bits, pretty tags and so on.

Closer to xmas, usually a weekend with x factor on in the background! I quite like wrapping.

I've not even bought everything,never mind wrapped them! Will be about a fortnight before Christmas I reckon, as I'll wait till deccys are up and doing that on 8th, so a couple of days after that. Will have some warm non-alcoholic mulled wine while I wrap and Christmas tunes on. And H playing on the iPad while I do all the work more than likely! Not that his wrapping skills are good enough anyway!

Hi Sange, wow thats come quick. You're allowed then haha x

Usually on Christmas Eve like a mad woman!
15/11/2013 at 11:21
Few days before Christmas, I haven't usually bought all of them until then!

I've never been able to leave it before as I don't live near family so have always needed to wrap and send way in advance.
This year though I've got E and i will leave hers until I break up from work.

I like to do it once the tree is up, same as most people. As stuff gets brought H puts it up the loft. Then I have a heart attack when he brings it all back down for me to wrap and I realise how many things I've actually brought and forgotten about.

Christmas Eve usually, but I swore I wouldn't do that again after stopping up until 2am last year wrapping. I am intending to start in the next week or so.
(Probably Christmas Eve again then!)

Probably in the few evenings running up to Christmas Eve for me. Again it is me that does it all but I prefer it that way!
