    Wrapping for presents under the tree but for anyone else I prefer gift bags just because I'm lazy but I do normally just wrap them because it's cheaper :lol:

    Wrapping all the way! I'm not a that in to Christmas if I'm honest but find the best way to get me in the spirit is to get he pressies wrapped in pretty paper. IMHO gift bags are a bit lazy. Where's the fun in peaking into a bag and seeing instantly what it is????

    Wrapping all the way it is crap when someone gives you a gift bag, it is not the same as ripping off the paper!

    If it's for other people then I wrap first and then put the present into a gift bag. I would never put a present in without wrapping. :flower:

    Honestly, I'd only use a gift bag for a token gift. The 'just-in-case' bottle for unexpected neighbour gifts, you know? Everything else has to be wrapped.

    My sister does gift bags but the gift inside is wrapped in coordinating tissue paper and ribbons, her presentation is flawless and you can see the effort she puts in. I'd see that as a step up from wrapping paper but I'm just not that organised!
