I tend to wrap most of my presents at once, whenever I can find a time when the recipients aren't around (or at least banished from the room for awhile). I like throwing on a movie and enjoying the process, especially if I'm trying to disguise an easy to guess item (like a DVD).
I usually do them at the same time if I can help it. I'm a pretty obsessive wrapper, so I like seeing all the different paper and ribbon on the different sized boxes together, what they look like together, what they'd look like on display under the tree etc.... Obsessive might actually be an understatement.
It depends on who it is for. I wrap my husband and immediate family's presents the night I but them, (nosy people in my house!!), but for others who either do not live in the house or visit regularly I will wrap them all at once. Oh, then I also have my Christmas Eve nightmare!! Those would be the ones I forgot, the ones from layaway or just arrived via USPS.
I always try to wrap them all at once to get it over with but it never seems to happen and I end up doing some here some there til I get finished in a frantic race in the wee hours of Christmas morning
When I was younger I used to wrap just a few at a time and enjoy the slowly growing pile of gifts under the tree. Now I just want to get it all done at once. What is your preference or do you care?
I used to wait until last minute to get them all wrapped..just because I'd be done shopping and want something to do. Now that I have kids, I wrap them as I get them so there are no accidental findings in my closet. I ran into a problem with that this year. I've been buying christmas presents since Last February (toy clearance sale-little kids) and I wrapped them up. I had a list of everything I had purchased and wrapped, and I lost it! I remember most of the things ,but I know on Christmas I'm going to have forgotten something, or a month after I'll find another present hidden in my closet somewhere!
