and are you shopping on-line or in-store?
I am just about to start-all on-line
I can't believe it's Dec 5th! already!
Not yet but for what is probably about the twentieth year in a row, I have "Promised" myself I am not going to leave it all until Christmas Eve. Nearly got caught out badly last year with shops closing unexpectedly early...
in store...done....had to do it early - so i can take off before the action starts and start my own fun
I'm almost done! Everything I've bought is wrapped and under the tree.
Not buying any this year, can't afford to. But, I have all the supplies I need for my Christmas dinner and will be making cookies to give to my super, maybe the postwoman, local friends, etc.
I am terrible at shopping, probably most particularly Christmas shopping. I follow no sensible or common rules . . . I am single-minded, when I buy food I buy only what I want to eat, no consideration of the cost, preparation time, etc. and when I buy gifts, I only buy if and when I find something I think someone will like . . . I don't follow prearranges price ranges or name-drawing, etc. I have 6 kids and sometimes I'll get something for 1 or 2 of them and nothing for the others, because i found something I thought those 1 or 2 would like and didn't find anything for the others.
My wife keeps track of everything and everyone gets their fair share, but, for instance; my father was 1st generation French Canadian (my grandparents moved to Canada from France), so my heritage is largely French. My oldest daughter is a Francophile and teaches French - the other year I got her a vintage French edition of Jules Verne's "Une Ville Flottante" (A Floating City), one year I got one of my sons a guitar, etc . . . I figure it all works-out in the end and no one is left out for too many years, and they all know I love them - it just seems goofy to me to buy something for one person that you don't really think they'll like because you bought something for another that you know they will like.

Do you like to do your holiday shopping from a list?Do you prefer to have a list of things your loved one wants for Christmas, or do you prefer to choose unique gifts based on personal observation or "quirky" gifts for the holidays?
