Out of curiosity, where do you hide presents for your children/significant other before they are wrapped?
Mine are hidden in my car or clothing drawers. Not terribly difficult to find but it seems to work. What about you?

I wrap mine the next day and usually I just leave the bags out in plain sight and throw a blanket over them. Darling Husband likes to be surprised so he won’t peek. I never leave things in my car because I don’t have a trunk. I’d stash something in my side of the closet if I had the room for it and knew I wasn’t going to wrap it Right away.

I quickly stash new items in my closet and after they get wrapped (sometimes days or weeks later lol) I put them under the tree. When trying to throw sneaky kids or nosy FIs off the trail it’s always wise to sprinkle a few tampon wrappers around the area. Scares them off instantly!

For my teenage kids, smaller things are hidden in clothing drawers. I’m pretty sure they don’t want to look through my underwear 🙂 There’s a high cupboard in my bedroom for the bigger things. Oh wait, they’ll all taller than me now. Maybe it’s not that high…

I usually just hide stuff in the spare room. My mum is a master present hider, she hides stuff so well that she forgets about it and a few weeks later just gives it to you and says ohh I got you this and forgot lol.

i try to wrap presents right after i get them just in case, but i usually keep them in my closet behind all my clothes. once the tree goes up i put them under there right away though.. it makes it feel more “christmas-y” and kitty likes to hide between the presents 🙂

Mine go under the bed! I take the side of the bed closest to the wall, so he never goes over there.
His go in our closet. I’m 5’1, he’s 6’4, so he just puts them where I can’t see or reach. Meanie. 😛

I try to wrap mine the day I get them but if not I just put them under my side of the bed. He’s not a snooper and he knows he would ruin my christmas if he peaked. I know that he hides the ones for me somewhere in our bedroom as well. I slept in the same room as my engagement ring for 4 months!! I had no idea.

In my closet. SO won’t look in there. He wrapped mine and put them directly under the tree.

I don’t have kids yet (but I will in a few weeks!) so this isn’t really an issue yet, but if I can I’ll do what my mom did… she kept them at her mom’s house and at her SO’s house. We had no chance of getting into those things.

Usually in my car. The other day he went to get something out of my car and I pretty much had to do some crazy ninja move to block him from going into the garage lol.

I used to live with four of nieces and I hid everything in the linen closet, up on the high shelf behind the pillow cases. For Darling Husband I wrapped it as soon as it came in from Amazon. He’s a gamer so he was occupied. 😀

We wrap immediately and put them under the tree. Seeing his presents under the tree makes Darling Husband not be such a slacker and get my gifts earlier. hah.
If we had kids though we’d hide them. Most people I know hide them at their work.

PS I read that the first place you should check for hidden presents is in clothing drawers…

Darling Husband and I each have designated closets that the other person is not allowed to go into close to birthdays/Christmas. Once we have kids, I imagine we’ll be hiding presents at my brother’s place or at a friend’s. If our kids are anything like Darling Husband, I know they’ll be snoopers!
