How do you set out toys from Santa?

How do you set the presents out from Santa? When I was a kid, all of our toys were from “Santa,” and they weren’t wrapped. They were laid out on the couches, and big toys were already put together. The only thing wrapped was clothes and nontoys. I’m thinking of doing the same for my daughter but wondering what everyone else is doing!

Santa presents are wrapped in a special wrapping paper with Santa on it!

Most years we place all the presents wrapped and under the tree except for the REALLY big ones that come out Christmas morning

Now with a toddler and a puppy with a chewing problem we are wrapping and hiding all the presents for survival. lol

I am very much looking forward to the kids faces when they wake up and see the tree stuffed to the brim.

All our presents are from Santa. 11 year old doesn’t believe any more but our toddler does. Gifts from other family are label from the person

We do one present from Santa and it always has special sparkly wrapping paper and a perfect cute bow and looks professionally done and then the rest of the presents are wrapped with no bow or anything special

I have always left the present unwrapped and put together, with a stocking full of goodies in front of the tree.

The santa present is the biggest one and its not wrapped.

Santa always brought the big ticket items and they werent wrapped just laying out beside the tree and there were some smaller toys and games we would wrap and write from Santa. Always a different wrapping paper for the ones from santa!

When my kids were little and still believed in Santa they got basic toys from Santa and they were never wrapped Santa does not have time to wrap all of those gifts.
And when I say basic toys things elves could make in a workshop… They don’t make electronics or large items.
It was usually like a car or a doll a Barbie a puzzle something simple

I read that giving the less expensive gifts from Santa is a good idea because not all children get big gifts and it makes them confused why Santa chooses favorites. It made me think differently about choosing what comes from who.

Wrapped presents from Mom and Dad, Santa gifts are not wrapped, put next to their stocking. Santa does NOT put the toys together…that is something to do with the child.

We don’t do Santa in our house…we wrap all the wrappable presents and put them under the tree and then stick bows or something on all the rest and set them out with it. My kids are skeptical and thought the idea of a stranger coming into their house at night was weird so all their presents come from us :rofl::rofl:

Wrap Santa gifts in plain brown paper. So my bonus daughter knew Santa delivered to both houses! Her mom and I made sure the paper ones were Santa gifts and the fancy wrap paper is from friends/family

Santa doesnt give presents. We keep santa alive as basically a fairy tale.

We only do stocking from Santa. Everything else is from us. We wrap everything and put presents out before Christmas.

Growing up, all of the gifts were wrapped and from Santa. With my children now, it is pretty much the same but we do give the kids one or two of the not real exciting gifts. Last year they got new sleds and board games from us. We like the excitement to be from Santa.

Santa brings the cheap Stocking fillers in our house lol

Personally in my house, the kids are told Santa brings them a smaller toy and that the big things are from us. I’m tired of my kid coming home crying bc sally got the Nintendo switch and jack got that cool powered ride on car that cost $500 … I wrap all the gifts and put them under the tree. Santa’s gift is wrapped in different paper

My sister waits until the kids are in bed. I think she wraps most of them.

Santa brings most of the gifts wrapped in his special Santa paper and puts the elaborate gifts together, so they’re ready for play. Gifts from family and us are wrapped and placed under the tree as we get them.
