Default Christmas Shopping!

Done? Much more to do?

I have one gift left to get, and the rest is done!!! Including stockings! I'm so amazed with myself

I've started grocery shopping for the non perishable stuff, and going to try and finish that off this week.

The only thing left will be fresh food and the liquor store, and will have to do those right before.

I'm feeling so relaxed this year!

Everything is all bought! Have ordered a couple of things I'm waiting on, but they should arrive in the next few days!

I've wrapped stuff for my brother (his Christmas presents and his birthday ones), but nothing else. I'm sensing this weekend will be a Xmas wrapping session for me!

I have two $25 toys r us gift cards. I will get whatever I can get for that amount that are motorcycle or PowerRanger related for my son. Then I am done.

I need to exchange the case for my daughter's tablet but I can do that after Christmas, if it's not convenient for me to do it beforehand...though I might try to do it tomorrow night.

I don't wrap anything for the kids anymore. I buy them so much; it's just a waste of my time and of money and paper.

I still don't have anything for my mother. IDK what to get. Someone help me please.

I have all my overseas stuff done, I always breathe a sigh of relief when that's done. Still stuff to get for the boys but they'll probably end up with money as they don't know what they want. Teenage boys are so hard to buy for, I do have some bits and pieces but not much.
Haven't even though about food yet (apart from my jar of mincemeat!).

I don't know how you do it, curlies, you're amazing. I bought NOTHING yet! :c only the stuff to send to my fiancé's family in the States which we still need to mail. Paaanic. XD I'm just so busy with handmaking our wedding invitations and getting that organized... it's just before Christmas, awful timing I know.

And my fiancé is so hard to shop for! He has EVERYTHING. XD I'll need to think about it very well.

I start thinking of ideas right after Christmas and buy throughout the year so I'm done with most of it early on. I sent out my out of town packages right after Thanksgiving and just did the rest of my sorting and wrapping this week.

Progress report... Other than a few things for my mom, absolutely nothing done.

Still struggling with my boys, can't even think of things for their stockings, they're a bit past magic putty and cars.
But what I have bought is all wrapped.

Doh! Yesterday I got home from shopping and found my face soap leaked all over my mom's present (a thermal top). I can't even blame the bagger because I'm the one who packed my bag! I can wash it and still give it to her right?

Almost done... Have about 3 more gifts to get and a lot of wrapping to do. Haven't even thought about the food yet! I'm trying to force myself to go to the store now to get the rest of the gifts but my bed is just way too comfortable

This year has been my worse year for getting presents.

Normally I only have a couple of presents to get by now and as they are alcohol for the people who like fine wines and ales they aren't that hard to pick up.

This year apart from 2 presents I have to get all of them.
