Gifts I buy for family go under as I get them and wrap them, usually by mid Dec. There is also one gift for dd under the tree from me and she opens it on Christmas Eve. All her other gifts (that I buy) are from Santa, so they go out after she's asleep on Christmas Eve. Gifts from family are usually under my parents tree since we get together at their house on Christmas Day.

Christmas eve...

We never get any visitors over Christmas as we are always the ones driving all over the place.

We're only visiting my family this year so on the 23rd we go to my nans and see all the aunts and uncles. They open their presents there.

We also have a second Christmas day at my mum's after boxing day, so again they open all their gifts then.

At home we have a Christmas Eve box and all the girls gifts get put out once in bed.

I do love the idea of gifts around the tree but never quite worked out a way for it to work for us.

Gifts I buy for family go under the tree until we deliver them. They are under there now and Scarlett actually hasn't tried touching them, I told her who they are for and she just tells me 100 times a day haha.
My FIL normally brings gifts from that side of the family down on Christmas eve so they will go under the tree when kids are in bed.
Other than that, they open their gifts from MIL and my parents at their houses.

Christmas Eve when they are in bed, they think everything comes from Santa so it all goes out then. Ds3 is in to everything though so even if we wanted to put them out early he’d ruin them!

Pre-kids I used to put other people’s presents under the tree and loved it, the paper was always coordinated with our living room and looked so pretty. Now it’s total chaos
