It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Christmas season is upon us and that means it’s time to start thinking about presents. As you start your holiday shopping, you might be wondering when the best time to open Christmas gifts is. Here at Misty Daydream, we have a few ideas…
On Christmas Eve
This is a great option if you want to get a head start on the festivities. Opening gifts on Christmas Eve night means you can enjoy them all day on Christmas Day. Plus, it’s a nice way to relax after all the cooking and cleaning that needs to be done before Santa comes!
First Thing in the Morning
There’s nothing like waking up on Christmas morning and rushing to see what Santa has left under the tree. If you have young kids, this is probably when they’ll want to open their gifts anyway. Just be sure to set aside enough time so that everyone can enjoy their presents. No one wants to feel rushed on Christmas day!
Once you’ve had your fill of turkey or ham (or whatever else you’re eating!), why not sit down and enjoy some quality family time with your newly opened gifts? This is also a great option if you have visiting relatives who might not be able to stay until Christmas morning. By opening gifts after dinner, everyone will get a chance to participate in the fun.
Whenever You Feel Like It
Ultimately, it’s up to you when you want to open your gifts. If you’d rather wait until everyone has gone home or even until Boxing Day, that’s fine! It’s your holiday and you should do what makes you happy. After all, that’s what Misty Daydream is all about.
