    My parents would swap with a neighbor or coworker…they would hide our presents at the other house and vice versa, so even if we found presents we still didn’t know what we were getting!!

    I collect Christmas tins. One year I just put the gifts in the tins, under the tree. Nobody thought to look there. That was probably over 10 years ago and they still talk about the year the gifts were in plain sight and nobody saw them.

    Well I work from home so the back of a filing cabinet is good for hiding presents as is behind stationery or in stationery boxes.

    I don’t hide gifts it’s a treasure hunt, it starts with clues in a couple of presents wrapped under the tree….the clues direct the present recipient to the next clues, in this case my wife,sometimes i will hide clues under a chair or pillow…Christmas day last year lasted 4 hours and extended into two counties…..make Christmas day fun….forget the under the tree crap

    There is the way you can make your man do what you want by choosing the right present). I was working hard persuading my boyfriend to go to the gym. To give him a final push I’ve ordered post-workout product for him as a Xmas present))). I would not come to this idea myself, unless I saw this special proposal on amazon
