When you buy your Christmas shopping do you try to get it all at once then wrap it all up the same day or do you buy a few at a time and wrap them up as soon as you can?

Whether it's Christmas or birthdays, I prefer to buy it all at once and do all the wrapping at once too. I hate having to drag it all out so it's easier if I just do it all at once and am done with it. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

I start my Christmas shopping at the end of summer,buying a little at a time. I do my biggest shopping in November when all the stores have sales the Friday after Thanksgiving. I use to have a Christmas club account at the bank and I would receive my a check in November to do my shopping with. I wrap gifts after we put up the Christmas tree.

I get a few gifts at a time and hide them until I get most of the shopping done and then I wrap them. I have a notebook with all the gifts written down and who they are for so I can make sure i have gotten everything. God bless you!

I buy my gifts as soon as I possibly can and then I make sure to wrap them up as soon as I can. I try to wrap them up whenever I won't be bothered especially if the gifts are for someone that I live with or what not. I try to wrap them as soon as I get them because that means it saves me the stress of having to wrap them on Christmas eve when I'd rather be doing other things like relaxing or enjoying the magic of the holiday.

Everyone always thinks I am crazy, but I start my Christmas shopping in the summer and I try to be close to done by Halloween. I find that by spreading it out, I can budget it a little better. Often, I know exactly what I want to get for someone, so if I can find those things on sale or use a coupon, I do. The other stuff, I wait to purchase until the holiday sales begin. Wrapping I do a few weeks before because otherwise I would forget what I bought!

Assuming that I would be totally broke from paying all my tuition fees, I would probably write cards to all my friends and family from the package of cards I bought last year at the After Christmas sale. There's probably a few special presents like for my mother and best friend that I would buy and wrap but I wouldn't be shopping until November. Happy mylotting

Well i think I'm actually kinda done with my parents and i have got that out of the way and now onto my friends and other relatives i have that are under 18. If i don't start early i will never get done because my family sells Christmas trees for almost a month and during that month is when usually everyone goes out shopping but not us we have to do it now and get it done before then. At least i don't have to stand in long lines and worry about the traffic and finding a spot to park at the mall and other stores. If i shop now i feel comfortable that i am getting it all done. I just keep the gifts in my closet or under my bed and no one ever sees them so I'm good to go.

I already brought my first gift for my granddaughter. What I do is buy and put everything in the closet. Then about a week from Christmas I start to wrap. This Christmas I won't be buying much only for my Granddaughter due to not having a job. Unless something magical happens and I win alot of money some how.

HOLY CRAP! Way to remind me how close Christmas is. Actually...I can't believe it. It always sneaks up on us after Christmas. Well this year I started early. I actually have one person completely bought for. I've never done that by now, before. I will finish my shopping up until mid December and then wrap all of the gifts to go under the tree. I LOVE Christmas shopping. Shopping for others is my fav :-)
