Who does the Christmas shopping?

Who does the Christmas shopping in your family? Typically I do the majority of the shopping in my family. I usually pick out all the gifts for the kids, and for anyone else we have to buy for, including hubby's parents. The only person hubby has to buy for is me. This year has been a bit different. Hubby and I did the majority of the shopping for the kids together. I picked up a few things without him, and still plan to do the stocking stuffers while grocery shopping next weekend, which he won't be there for. It has been probably about 5 years since we've done the shopping together.

I am the main christmas shopper in our family, my hubby is not one for all this and so it is left to me and I choose everything for everyone! I bet if you were to ask him now what I had bought his mum he would not be able to tell you, I have told him but he has probably forgotten!

Hubby told me what he'd like to get his dad, but I will probably buy the gift at my next shopping trip. I showed him the picture for his mom last night, he said he liked it... that was my idea. He's begun his shopping for me, so that's a plus. Most years I'm kicking him out of the house on Christmas Eve to go do his shopping.

I do all the shopping and all the deciding what to buy for every one. My husband could care less. He doesn't like to shop that much and I enjoy doing the shopping by myself. I'm meeting my daughter tomorrow morning to shop for Christmas. I wanted to take her to get some things and she'll help me buy for her kids like we did last year. I don't know if she has all hers done or not. She's been too busy going to basketball games and soccer games this month. Her son has a soccer game tonight and 2 next Friday night.

We do most of the christmas shopping together. He waits till the last minute and then does his shopping for me. he makes me figure out what to get everyone in his family too. I bounce ideas off him and then he tells me which ones we should get. We do the kids shopping together always. I do alot of shopping online but we talk about what we want to get for them before we do it.

we both do christmas shopping. i do all the shopping for my side of the family, even though iy's from both of us. he does the shopping for his side of the family. i also usually pick up a gift for his daughter, which he buys the main gifts for her. and then we each buy gifts for each other.
