When do you start buying gifts for christmas? We usually start on boxing day and shop throughout the year.

We start as soon as Christmas is over generally because that way we have the whole year to pick up some really good bargains. Sale times are great as there are often things marked down really low plus when the packaging has been damaged, the shops can reduce things by as much as 60%. I love it. :)

I always have the best intentions of starting early, and I really envy people who are able to do this, but...we usually end up doing the last minute shopping, wrapping and baking. I wish I wasn't so lazy. lol

I think we're going to start early this year. I usually wait till the last minute. But this year my husband and I decided that we're not going to deal with the crowds!

I start buying for Christmas around the start of November. I do a lot of shopping on "Black Friday" (The day after Thanksgiving in the US, it's a BIG shopping day with lots of sales here!) I won't really buy the bulk of my items until December though!
