DD (3.5 years old) is getting swings for christmas. Father Christmas makes a special trip sometimes for big presents, and will bring it on Christmas Eve morning. Then, she gets to 'help' DH assemble it that day.
Like tres-chic, we have christmas eve guests and we don't fancy having to put the swings together in the dark that night!
She will have other presents to open on christmas morning
ETA: Oh, and to actually answer your question, when DD got a scooter for her birthday, we assembled it the night before, then tied a big bow around it
I do prefer things assembled the night before, mostly
