        I haven't even started. I've been too busy selfishly shopping for myself.

        I hardly do any real shopping anymore unless I find something personal to the person. I'm just a gift card giver.

          Amazingly I'm almost done. I have a few more purchases to make and already know what to get...just need to get to the store as soon as the weather warms up.

          Usually I'm shopping the week of Christmas so this is a huge thing for me.

              I do alot of research online for my christmas gifts and then travel to the stores to pick -up, I hate having to pay for shipping but some sites have free shipping and no tax and I will purchase from those sites. I join sites and receive discounts and coupons for free stuff, I just recieved a $15 coupon off at Sephora, that will almost buy me a Philosophy body wash (kick in a buck) I love free stuff. I'm not done with christmas shopping, I have a big family but I'm half way done, its fun to get all bundled up and head to the stores to shop, of course one must get a cinnabon or cookies for energy.

                Christmas shopping!? I wish. I have no money for that or anything like it. I've got a few people that I will buy presents for but I haven't even started yet and I think everyone else will get a card. It's a really nasty broke month for me. Maybe next year everyone in the family will get a present.

                  I bought my princesss her present already! actually it was suppose to be her birthday gift but it got transformed into her Christmas present once I found out I wouldn't see her on her birthday

                  I still need to buy my family presents though! I'm mailing them because I'm having my first christmas without them! it will just be me and julay! Then heading on a 7 day Mexican Rivera cruise! can't wait! I feel so grown up

                  I usually do my Christmas shopping online just because its easier but for some gifts I had to go to the actual store!

                    I think the high here yesterday was around 16 degrees with wind chill below zero!
                    I hate paying shipping too so find places with free shipping or a low flat rate.

                      While I am atheist, I find it to be so much more special when I'm not fighting to buy anything in stores. My family stopped gift giving years ago (like ten or so) because it was just becoming too expensive, plus we never see each other ... it's much better now because it frees up some money to give to charity. It's a tough year for everyone though Rybread.

                      This will be the first year I haven't bought for my sister's kids but ... over the course of the year I paid my niece $300 to paint my bedrooms, gave her $1000 diamond necklace that David gave me years ago, gave her an opal ring that I owned, bought her two outfits and shoes. My nephew I gave him my brand new laptop because they needed to look for a house and being online helped them do that ... so I think they've been treated fairly well over the year!

                      Though I was thinking of gag gifts for the kids (they're in their mid-twenties now, not kids anymore!)

                      David and I used to go toy shopping for the local firefighter's toy drive .. I'm cutting off that tradition. His fault. lol

                        I was just out checking all my stuff and seeing what else I need to get,
                        I have about 12 neices and nephews and told them I'd stop when they turned 18, I think I only had two left last year.
                        of course now the great neices and nephews are sprouting up, so i'm back to about 7 to buy for, plus my trike group secret santa, cc secret santa, my two close co-workers, and of course my mom and aunt.
                        just about everythings here now, just got one of two shipments left and I'll be done, ordering on-line is the way to go;......

                          With nieces and nephews on their birthdays:

                          I give them money at the age they're at. I keep kidding them that they can buy 'some' gas now ... when they're forty or fifty, they might even get a full tank! lol

                            I still give them birthday presents, usually a hundred dollar bill, but not christmas, once they hit 18, no more, even though I'm not religious I still like the idea of kids and christmas, maybe I'm just a big kid at heart

                              finished all of mine about 2 month ago. I like to make gifts too... pillows, quilts, teapot warmers... lots.
