Preparing Christmas gifts, is it too early?
November 6, 2016 7:38pm CST
I can already feel the Christmas season. From lanterns and Christmas lights everywhere, you can already feel the spirit of Christmas. As early as now, I am already preparing gifts for kids. Yes, it is too early, but I am sure December will be a busy month. Many people will go to the mall and will have a last minute shopping. So, I will save some money and buy gifts as early as now. Is Christmas gift too early in November? Please share your thoughts about Christmas gifts.

Usually, I start in september. It's then when I think about whom I want to give christmas present and I make a list. After, I think about what to give to each written on the list. So, I already can start to by some in October and some in November. As you well said, in December the prices are going up and many persons leave the shopping for the last days. Too many people in the same area is something I don't like.

I think it is never too early to shop presents for Christmas because if you find something in the middle of June or July and it would make a nice gift for someone at Christmas you might as well buy it now then try and struggle to find it in December or try to remember what it was. I started my shopping in July-August and now I am done with shopping for everyone that I am buying for. Now all their gifts are done, I don't have the stress of holiday shopping and what to get someone, or have to worry about the money to buy it with.

In fact it seems many foreigners already prepared for their Christmas gifts well. I haven't prepared for it yet. Since it is a little early for me. I prefer to do it next month. I don't want to buy something which I feel regretful. So buying it in the last minute sounds better for me.
