every week as we do our grocery shopping, my daughter and i sometimes proceed to the other sections of the department store. i always check what new things they have and just appreciate beautiful items they display there. it is also towards this time that their new stocks arrive and i feel it wise to check if some of them catch my interest and liking. i am now starting buy a few items for the christmas season on our weekly trips to the department store. by the time christmas arrives, i shall have finished doing the shopping for gifts to relatives and friends.

I am more like your dad, i am rushing around on Xmas eve, like a lunatic, trying to get it all done. Every year, i promise myself, i will do it sooner, but i never do! Christmas day is always organised though, with everything we need, so that is the main thing.

Little by little I have been listing gifts for friends and family. I also bought a couple of things when I had the chance to go on midnight sales or bazaars. Thinking what's appropriate for someone can be hard. You really have to know the person before you can give him/her a gift that he/she can appreciate. I suggest you go to this site http://www.gifti.us. It's very helpful.

I hate Christmas shopping as it is not just getting the gifts for people it is all that wrapping up and trying to hide those presents away from the children.I tend to buy bits all year round then at Christmas it dont take a real big chunk of money all at once from my bank.
