There were 7 of us so Santa didn’t have enough time to wrap. Only presents from parents and other family members were wrapped. Did Santa wrap your presents when you were little?

Only the ones that didn’t fit in the stockings. I did the same for my kids. I wrapped them in Santa paper. However, my kids only got 2 or 3 gifts from Santa. The rest were from Mom and Dad.

Same as you, only presents from family we’re wrapped. And he only brought 2-3 bigger type presents, everything else was from mom and dad.

Yes, Santa wrapped my presents. I just wrapped presents for my 4 year old dd and 2 year old ds with Santa paper from Santa. They only get a few presents.

Santa always wraps gifts and they're in special "Santa" wrap. He also wraps every single cotton pickin' gift in the stockings, ugh!

Yes, coincidentally in the same wrapping paper our other presents were wrapped in. Santa came twice to our house. Once while we were at church on Christmas Eve to drop off a few presents, and then again at night to fill the stockings. Obviously we were pretty gullible.

Nope - Santa gifts were under the tree when we woke up and they all were unwrapped. Gifts from relatives were wrapped of course

Yes! But different wrapping paper than from family.

For my 2, Santa wraps their gifts (if he can) in the wrapping paper of what they are into that year. This year it’s Frozen and Toy Story. Last year it was Paw Patrol and Princesses.

Yep! Santa wrapped his presents in wrapping paper that had Santa on it.

I continued that tradition with my own children. I made sure those gifts were well-hidden so if they snooped, they didn't see those. For other gifts not from Santa, I designated a background color/pattern of wrapping paper for each person. I didn't put labels on them. Just told the kids which color/pattern was theirs.

Santa gifts were unwrapped, and that is what we did with our kids up until the last couple of years. Last year, everything was wrapped because we were traveling and had to transport gifts. This year, I went on and wrapped them all because I was tired of storing things in my closet and wanted to actually walk in to my walk-in closet again. (Our kids are older now. If it was still "Santa," I probably wouldn't have wrapped them.)

I believe so. Except big items. Once I got a chalkboard that was just sitting in the corner unwrapped that had "Merry Christmas to Linda" from Santa-best unwrapped present ever

No, Santa did not wrap presents when I was a child. There was something so magical about coming into the living room Christmas morning and seeing all the toys spread out in front of the tree. Santa did not wrap my kids’ toys either.

The Santa who visits my house now has special wrapping paper for each child, so they know which prsents belong to them.

My childhood SantA wrapped most of thr presents. I never really noticed if other presents had the same wrapping, They probably did.

Santa must have used up all his wrapping paper before he wrapped ours. Ours were wrapped in newspaper. He’d pile mine in one pile and my brother’s in another. He’d take our stockings off the mantel and lay them on our piles.

My kids got the Sunday comics as their wrap from Santa.

Santa did not wrap. Smaller items were “wrapped” in our stockings. Bigger items were sorted in piles by recipient.

Gifts from family members were wrapped and under the tree.

Santa never wrapped mine as a child and so we never wrapped out two kids. Dh's Santa wrapped his though. Santa always brought the bigger hard to wrap gifts. I loved sneaking down in the night to see what he had brought. My kids used to do the same thing, lol. My ds was wrapping the other night for my dgs I reminded him not to wrap Santas!

Santa gifts were always wrapped, unless they were too big (air hockey table, Barbie cruise ship.) Even big gifts were usually covered with a sheet or something. My mom claims there was always separate paper for Santa but I never really noticed.

I wrapped DD's before remembering she got a Santa sack with her name on it last year, so I guess they'll be wrapped in the sack. Last year Santa brought her play kitchen and we just covered it with a sheet.

EX said that Santa always left presents unwrapped and actually assembled anything that needed assembly.

We didn’t do Santa at my grandmother’s house where we always spent Christmas.

Yes, but I'm an only child . My mom still tells stories of her mother making her wrap her own gifts when she was a child.

Yes, our presents from Santa were wrapped with candy in our stockings. I wrapped my own children's Santa presents too.

Yes—at my house, Santa presents were always wrapped. At my husband’s house, they were not wrapped. For our own kids, Santa gifts weren’t wrapped. Made Santa’s job a little easier. 😉

No Santa didn’t wrap his presents which was usually 1 big item (sometimes 2 if they were smaller items) and stockings. We did the it the same way for our kids.

All the other presents from us (and family) were wrapped.

Growing up, Santa's presents were not wrapped, usually only 1 or 2 items. All other presents were wrapped except stocking stuffers. On Christmas Eve we were allowed to unwrap one present. I will never forget the embarrassment of unwrapping my very first bra!
My own family we had 3 gifts from Santa unwrapped and stocking stuffers unwrapped. All other gifts wrapped.

Love reading all the different traditions!

As a child my whole extended family spent the nights at my aunt's house. (She lived next door). There would be around 20 of us. Since there was 7 of us kids, Santa didn't wrap presents. We did they even after I was married h until my son was 2.

After that we stayed at our house & Santa wrapped presents in special Santa paper.
