With Christmas only being a few months off, has anyone started buying gifts yet?
I purchase gifts year round so I do not have to rush and spend a lot of money during the holidays.
Hi mvillecat Yes, I have things put away. I buy all year long when I see that perfect item at the right price. It takes the pressure off, so I can relax and really enjoy the lovely things like choral music, crackling fires in the fireplace, decorating, cooking, and entertaining.
My wife does the Christmas shopping and does it all year round also. She finds things at great prices, but sometimes I think she buys more than she would if she bought it all at the last minute.
I've started planning, but not purchasing. For example, I know the gifts for everyone, yet they are not in my home as of now. Most will be bought on Black Friday.
Well, that is a start. I used to love going out on Black Friday but since I have had to take over all the cooking for Thanksgiving for my family I am far too exhausted. Thanks for commenting!
Dear Lord! Cooking everything? Good luck, you need and deserve a break after that.
Not yet - but I'm actually going to buy supplies for gifts because they are homemade. I love the personality and the special touch those of the kind offer, plus they cost less than beating the crowds and buying a lot. This year, I'm going to use the craft floss lying around at home for friendship bracelets for the kids.
I haven't started too actively. But I did buy one book for someone, and have been putting money aside toward gifts so it will be there when it's needed. I'm planning to make several (hopefully most) of my gifts, so I've started looking for supplies for that and am ready to start those project once the weather cools and it's good stay in and craft weather.
Read the following Hub and watch the video, then think about Christmas and gift buying.

(What would Jesus buy)
Don't shrug me off or think 'what a party pooper', but DO think, please.
I agree with billy's hub completely. Everyone is for sale. That is why my husband and I chose many years ago not to keep up with the Joneses. Check my blog out www.sowingasimpleharvest.com. In the last few years we have scaled back our Christmas.
No, but I'm actually on my way to pick up wrapping paper, gift boxes and tissue paper. I can't believe everything is already on sale! Haven't even found my daughter's Halloween costume! Christmas shopping starts so early these days.
I have bought a few but nowhere at all near where I should be
Christmas is a year round thing for me. For the gifts I make, I buy the materials and start making things in the spring and summer so that I have enough time to get them done. As for the store bought gifts, I started purchasing them in a couple of months ago.
I buy Christmas presents all year long. I actually have a special plastic bin for them in the basement to store all of them. I also hand make some presents so I always start those really early. For example, I made a 40 page scrapbook of my sister and her fiance as a gift and started it in the summer. It took forever to make it but they loved it!

Why do "we" put so much value when buying gifts?"Presents don't really mean much to me. I don't want to sound mawkish, but - it was the realization that I have a great many people in my life who really love me, and who I really love."~Gabriel Byrne

Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for most of them, on average. I know it takes time to build up traffic and I am...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

Do you always leave a comment if you read a hub?I have followers whom I've never seen in the comments sections and just wondered what other hubbers think about the comments in general. Do you leave comments when you read? Sometimes? Always? Never? Please give your reasons with...
