Re: Do you wrap gifts or bundle them?

I have 4 & we should have 6 by next x-mas.

We wrap every gift beautifully. Every year requires new coordinating papers & ribbons. Everything goes into an appropriately sized box so there are no sloppy wrapping jobs. Everything is adorned with ribbons, candy canes, ornaments to go on next years tree, or small play figures. What adorns the gift is also what works as the name tag. One kid will get all gifts with a blue candy canes tied into the ribbons, or the gifts with purple glittery snowflake ornaments....etc....

For me as a child, seeing a gigantic stack of gorgeous wrapped gifts literally made my heart beat so hard I could it in my chest. So I go every extra mile to make things that special for my kids too.

We always wrap, but we are also doing minimal presents this year. So we won't have a whole lot to wrap.

Re: Do you wrap gifts or bundle them?

We have six kids and wrap everything except big bikes and things. my mom had 12 kids and always wraps everything even here 16 grandkids multiple gifts she wraps.

Unwrapped gifts are no fun to watch them not be opened.

Re: Do you wrap gifts or bundle them?

We normally wrap all of the gifts, but then again we only give them 3 each so it isn't too much work. Our wrapping is very basic however. I am very big on not spending tons of time on thigs I don't enjoy- if I can help it!!! I would much rather be playing with my kids or watching a movie with my husband, than folding perfect corners and tying pretty bows! My time is too valuable for all that. Hmmm..... bundling the gifts sounds practical to me though

Re: Do you wrap gifts or bundle them?

I do both! This year I was so ill at Christmas that my DD wrapped all but hers. DH has done the same w/past pregnancies. This year he and I split the rest. I really, really love wrapping gifts, but I'm not too fancy. However, being sick and pregnant? No way. lol.

I love wrapped gifts, someone took the effort and a few minutes to wrap it up, shows care.
I don't even like gift bags, it seems like you are just plopping the gift in.
As the pp said, unwrapping is always fun to watch

Wrap usually in paper, sometimes in gift bags with tissue paper.

I wrap, and will continue to, but each kid only gets 3 gifts total so it isn't all that much wrapping.
