I started my shopping this past week although I have to admit that I do my Christmas shopping year round. Whenever I see something that I think someone on list would like I buy it.


This year I also decided to do more gift cards.

Have you started your shopping yet or do you want until the last minute?

No. I haven't started, although I have quite a few ideas. I make a list first. I pretty much live my life in lists. LOL
On the other hand, my DIL is finished. Totally done. I envy her.

Yes, I have! I do this every year, I love buying for my kids so I start early, and then end up buying too much because I see something else...then I MUST get this, and so on, lol

I think gift cards are a great gift!

Yes, I've only got 2 more gifts to buy and I'm done with all my shopping. I've been trying to start earlier the past few years to relieve some holiday stress.

I haven't done any shopping yet. I am always a last minute shopper. Although, in my defense, my family always drags their feet about telling me what they'd like. I'd rather get something I know someone wants than guess and buy a lemon. Also I have a ton of birthdays in November and early December that I have to get through before Christmas shopping.

I already have a couple of presents and will buy the rest pretty soon. I mostly buy books anyway, except for hardcore non-readers, and order them online, so I don't have the Christmas shopping hassle.
