Yes, I do. I try to hold off until after the holidays when the really good sales kick in.

I also sometimes buy gifts taht I think I'd like for myself. I don't know what my MIL likes, but I took a gamble and bought a velvet throw in baby pink for her (and yes, I bought another for myself!) She is a homebody, so I am guessing she will like that.

I have been pretty good about not buying for myself this year--I ahve actually cut down on what I normally buy at any other time of year, so I think I've done better than usual. I am also done with my shopping, which is odd because I usually end up scrambling at the last minute. I actually started wrapping gifts yesterday.
