I’ve always just dumped out my stocking and enjoyed whatever was there. In DH’s house, everything that was in his stocking was always wrapped, so now he wraps what he puts in my stocking, and I put everything in his unwrapped, lol! I mean, it IS more fun to unwrap things, so I do like it, it’s just not what I grew up with. What do you do?

Stocking were always unwrapped with my family.
They were also mostly silly yet useful things like hair ties, lotion, body wash, lottery tickets, candies, etc.

@bakerella: I am 50/50 .. I think unwrapping is half the fun. I will wrap the small gifts that fit in his stocking, but I always get Fiance his favourite chocolates and candies and put those in his stocking as well – those I wont wrap.

We don’t wrap stockings. The kids have to have something to play with (along with one or two unwrapped gifts) and we might get to sleep in alittle while longer. I am no good at the crack of dawn.

Stockings always unwrapped for us. Actually since my mother is a school teacher we could always tell which gifts she was regifting from a student because it still had traces of wrapping paper or tape on it 🙂

Definitely unwrapped in our house!! I was always allowed to open my stocking before my parents got up, everything in there I could use or play with or eat. It was my parents compromise with me so they could sleep in!

wrapped! everything is wrapped… and in my house we opened our stocking presents one by one in a round with my sisters so we could see what they got… as we got older we were able to do them all together but when we were little it was the best way for my mom to get pictures and see each of our reactions so it worked. And surprisingly it’s one of my favorite things about christmas looking back.

Unwrapped! If you’re going to wrap it, might as well stick it under the tree!

I voted “Other,” because ours were sort of half and half? Lol. The bigger, less obvious stuff was wrapped, but the stuff like socks and whatever were unwrapped.

I do half and half… some gifts are wrapped and some arent.
