Anyone started Christmas Shopping?

  1. I was just wondering since all the stores in the Mall are putting out Christmas decorations, has anyone started shopping for gifts yet? I just can't start shopping this soon, this may be due to the fact that I just don't know what to buy this year. My dear hubby is always the most difficult to buy for, so all you men out there, what would you really like from your wives or girlfriends this year?

    I'm not that on the ball. I usually do most of my shopping the week before Christmas. With school, full-time work, and the Choral group I sing with, I know December will be really busy for me.
    No offense, but SHUT UP! I can't even think about that right now!

    :chuckle I'm sorry. I'm going slowly, deliriously insane.....

    Just finished putting the list together!

    I do all the toy shopping on have done it that way for the past 3 years... I love it! Everything comes in boxes that I can just keep in the garage... until I am ready to wrap...., after I wrap.. i put them back into the boxes until Christmas morning.... no hiding toys from the kids...

    American Express has gift cards now... will be purchasing those for the nieces and nephew who are young adults now!

    Taking my parents, sister and her family to the Lion King on broadway Christmas weekend,

    The rest of the list will be completed on line... with stores like Gap, Old Navy, Limited Two,Disney Store, etc .. anthing that is online... I don't do the stores time! Plus everybody has free shipping just in time for Christmas Orders!

    I tried to do a lot online last year, it worked out really well, so convenient !

    And "free" shipping is great
