We all love to shop when it's near Christmas time or even during the holidays.. There are malls or shopping centers which boasts of a higher "on sale" products. Some would go to thrift shops or factory warehouses to avail of a wide variety of discounted items. There are places, which are solely for Christmas presents and unique items. Me, whenever there is a "sale" on the nearest malls, I would go there. Sometimes, I go out my way and visit the "world trade center" for some unique and never before seen products.. Or places where I can buy products by the bulk...much cheaper..

I always used to love shopping at the malls for unique and special gifts. Over the past years I haven't even been able to get to any of the nice malls and didn't have the money to go shopping there to begin with. This past year or two I have only been able to shop at Walmart for the most part because I am disabled and need to shop where there are motorized carts I can drive around the store. No carts, no shopping. I can't walk the distances required for shopping like I used to do. But I still try to find as unique and as special of gifts I can find because I love shopping for Christmas gifts and finding things that really fit that person's style or personality.

I do a little bit of shopping at the mall, but I prefer going out and supporting smaller, local merchants. It really depends on how much time, and money I have and who the present is for.

well, during christmas i usually go to malls because definitely a lot of stores will be on "sale". and there's a lot of things to choose from. sometimes, you can get you dream gift in a very low price (almost half of the price) when before it was as expensive like hell specially branded or imported items. we have a mall here in our place which really have items with low low price. if it costs 700 in mall, u can get it 350 and the price is still negotiable and thats my favorite part in shopping- to haggle.

I always go to the malls. I know it would be more unique to pick something up from bazaars and fairs, but I like giving gifts from established stores already so that I don't need to wrap anything. :) Of course, when shopping for my friends I try to look for more unique pieces that I think they'll like. I still get these at the mall. The mall literally has everything!!! I love the malls near my place especially Shangri-la mall because it's cool, fun, and complete!

I usually go to Divisoria to buy presents. It's much cheaper when I buy them wholesale. I go there too to buy for my personalized presents for the most important people in my life. Besides, it's the thought that counts not the cost. LOL. HUGZ eihdra!

It really depends on who I am shopping for and what I plan to get them. I have shop at places like atrget and wall mart to macy's and penny's it really just depends on the who and what.

I shop mostly all year long...garage sales, flea markets and what have you. Last few years that's been less of an option, so we did most of the shopping at Big Lots.

This year my husband and I are on a budget, so the family will likely get presents from the local coffee shop (big bags of coffee, mugs, etc.). I'm there anyway, the prices are good, and I'm supporting a favourite business. MOST OF ALL I'm giving my family things they will LIKE!

Since i've been here in the US i don't wrap gifts except for my daughter and husband.Usually i buy in the mall just one thing each to show that i care.For relatives and friends in other country i just send money as a gift for them to enjoy.
