    I've gotten all gifts to be shipped wrapped and staged in their shipping boxes - empty cookie tins in as well to make sure I have room!

    Feels good to have that done!

    All the items for our adopted family don't need to be wrapped, thank goodness, so recent shopping hasn't added to my "to wrap" pile yet!

    Hoping to get done with putting up Christmas decor before the next wave of things to be wrapped comes in!

    Oh, and here are some of my "pretties" after a recent session:

    Jodee, love the snowmen, the recipients are going to feel very special!
    AJ, beautiful bows! I used to do that kind of wrapping until Myron ate a bunch of ribbon and ended up having surgery. Oh well. But your packages are so festive.
    All I have left is a couple of things that I just ordered. Husband got all his wrapping done too.

    DH still needs to wrap. He is not great at wrapping so I need a lot of gift bags.

    Hopefully you are all going well with Christmas prep and are ready to enjoy a wonderful Christmas season. If you are not quite ready don't worry there is still plenty of time to get it all done.

    Got a bunch of wrapping done over the long weekend, mostly for DS. Still have some things left to wrap for him and still need DH, my sister and her BF to finish their wish lists so I can order theirs!!!!

    I never got to the wrapping over the weekend so I spent some time yesterday wrapping gifts. I will have to run out to get more as we have less on the roll than I thought.

    I hardly have anything wrapped. Hoping to get a lot wrapped this weekend. My goal is to be done wrapping by the 19th as I start my baking on the 20th. May have to set a date with my coffee pot late Friday or Saturday night and just get busy wrapping.

    Forgive me if this has been asked before - do you wrap gifts that go into stockings? I usually just wrap them in tissue paper, not even any tape, the stockings are always pretty full so I don't have to worry about things coming unwrapped.

    I don’t. I just put stuff in them. I always considered the stocking as wrapping I guess.

    We wrap most of the stocking stuffers. I don't wrap small things like chapstick, candy and gum.

    As far as stocking stuffers go, I wrap anything "expensive" as in it is more of an official gift but its small size led me to put it in their stocking... I wrap most of DS's stuffers just so he has the fun of opening. I stick to paper and a gift tag, skipping the bow - to save on space!

    Or I will hot glue on a flat embellishment of some kind - or wrap once around the middle with a scrap of wired ribbon, etc.

    As I have said before we don't do stocking we do Santa sacks. We do wrap maybe half of the items that go into the sacks.

    I thought we did too in January! It turns out that we had many rolls with very little on it. That was quite deceiving.
