Writing out your cards & wrapping presents?

Need to buy some first!

Have wrapped a few presents - still loads to buy yet though!

Will write cards when I get around it. I usually have them posted by 10th December though.

I don't send cards, but if I did, it would be on the first Sunday of Advent.

Wrapping is an issue, as we have loads to do, but several children who still believe in Santa - so all wrapped presents need to be shoved back into a cupboard.
Still it gives them an authentic 'all the way from the North pole' look fgrin

Will start them on November 28th, when the children are away for the weekend I guess.

I am still to finish making the cards let alone write!

I need to get more brown paper to wrap and some navy ribbon .... and make the labels. I plan to have it all done by the time ds1 has broken up from school.

Presents already wrapped, I did it as got items.

Cards I don't do, I buy family and close people a really special card and they have to put it up every year, except for my parents I buy a card for as my mum likes cards and she still has card I made her when I 7

I've already wrapped most of my presents and I'll probably start writing my cards soon. Won't send them until December though.

I will start wrapping in the next week or two - I want to have all presents bought (I am 3/4 finished with buying) and wrapped (not wrapped a single one yet) by 19th Dec (when school breaks up)

i have bought all wrapping paper, cellotape, tags & christmas cards.

I will also start writing cards this week. oh boy.....i better get busy!

We always order the cards from school which the DCs have made which is a bit annoying as they don't arrive until really late and I have some free time now so could be writing them before things start to get manic in December. I also have to be all finished by the time the DCs break up from school as we are away from the 20th to 23rd.

Starting to panic a bit, have a very long list but can't really do much until payday!

I wrap presents when Dh goes down to London for his super fancy, no partners invited, mid week anyway so I couldn't go work christmas party to make be feel a bit more festive (I work in a school so it'll be a meal in a pub that we pay for ourselves job for our Xmas do). We only do family cards these days too and do a donation to oxfam through school.

Bought cards today. Intend to buy stamps in batches to spread the cost! Will post third week in December.

Was going to wrap DS2s stuff but had no Sellotape!

Not many cards to do, but those that need posting will be done first weekend in December.

I tend to wrap gifts nearer to the time, unless they need to be given out before Christmas.
