Some ways of hiding presents work better than others. I was never able to find where my parents hid our Christmas presents when I was a kid. I think my dad probably hid them in plain sight, in a storage room among other boxes with boring stuff in them, so we never thought to look there. If you wait until the last minute to buy your presents, then you can avoid the whole issue. Of course, you can also do that if you wrap them immediately after buying them, but I'm too much of a procrastinator to do that.
