Does Santa wrap your gifts?

December 23rd, 2008 at 05:36 pm

I was talking with a friend this morning and I mentioned that Santa wrapped our presents. She said she has never had Santa's gifts wrapped.

I was thinking of asking Santa not to wrap this year to save money and resourses, and time.

I really don't know though, because of tradition.

    Santa doesn't come to our house.

    we wrap (usually use bags, no newmoney) the one present under the tree and the gifts from them

    we do not wrap anything under the tree.

    This year we will have some cloth wrapping see hoe it goes.

    If you need to change tradition, My suggestion is to do it one thing at a time. Trying to toss out all wrapping and buy less all at once is pretty hard.

    Santa does not wrap gifts at our house...never has. My girls know as of last year, but we'll keep traditions the same.

    Santa doesn't come to our house either Smile but our one "big" present from mom and dad to the kids usually isn't wrapped. That's how it was with my family growing up too.

    Santa never wrapped in my parents' house. When you woke up there would be piles of gifts for however many "kids" were going to be there (as long as you didn't have kids of your own, you were still a kid), and you would just know which one was yours by what was in the pile. (For instance, mine would have E.T. or unicorn stuff. Smile )

    Don't know what I'll do for my kids when I have some...

    Santa doesn't wrap at my house. And I will pay for this later, but the rule is "as long as you believe, you receive"... Santa will forever be visiting my house, even if it is just a few trinkets when they are older. I have always loved Santa and my husband and I still put one small item in our stockings. His is always a wallet. This year, I found a movie I wanted for $3.99, so it goes in mine.

    No wrapping. Isn't Santa too busy for that? Hehe.

    Oh. P.S. Our presents (under tree) are wrapped with newspaper. Keeps it a surprise, but not as wasteful.

    I always wrap all of our gifts and keep them hid until everyone is asleep. When they wake up, the presents are miraculously under the tree; and I always take a picture of what Santa left under the tree for our Family Album. The best part is getting up before the kids, having just the tree lit and sitting on the couch with my husband and a hot cup of coffee. Very cozy.

    Oh, we don't really believe in "Santa" per se, but we do believe in the Miracle of the Season; and we have had quite a few miracles in our family.

    Santa wraps the gifts in the stocking, It makes the happiness last longer.

    To cut cost have you considered using the comics to wrap gifts. I buy the Sunday paper for the coupons and save the Comics! DHs grandmother used to do it so I have a box of comic papers I have started for once all the paper I have boughten in years past after christmas at 90% off is gone.

    Santa didn't wrap in our house when I was a kid, but I like a wrapped gift.

    Santa wraps at my house. Growing up he always wrapped and it's a tradition I am keeping. I buy special Santa paper and hide it. I also printed out the guft tags this years so my daughter won't recognize my hand writing.

    My kids are only 3 and 8. I am afraid this is the last year for my daughter believing. She is already asking questions Frown
