Anyone Christmas Shopping?

July 13th, 2011 at 05:39 am

I can't believe I am thinking about Christmas shopping already, but I am. I have asked my children for their Christmas and birthday lists. Two of my kids have birthdays in December.

My youngest, 16, says "Has 7 months gone by in this year already". Yes, baby boy, there are only 5 months until Christmas and I need to start now.

My goal is to find the best deals, although some of the best deals don't come until after Thanksgiving, so it will depend on what's on their lists.

My Christmas shopping consists of:
My oldest son (26) and his girlfriend (24)
My daughter (she will turn 20)
My youngest son (he will turn 17)
My husband
Two nephews and a niece (7,9 and 11)
and possibly a couple other kid and adult gifts depending on the parties we will be attending.

I would like to do gifts in a theme something like:
*Something you need
*Something you want
*Something to wear
*Something to read

I thought this was interesting: http://thesavedquarter.com/100-holiday/

Anyone else Christmas shopping?

    I've been Christmas shopping since December 26! Just for incidental "finds" though. When it gets closer to the day, I'll have to figure out what I need to buy to make the giving equitable.

    No. Not yet. It is crossing my mind occassionally. Like CB, I will probably only pick something up, if I come across a good deal for the right person.

    Yep...I have a friend who collects Currier and Ives dishes and when are out and about going through antique shops and flea markets, I'm on the lookout for reasonably priced items. I am also funding a Christmas club since my husband can't decide until the last minute what he wants.

    Nope, but I've been saving up for it
