And how many of you are DONE with your shopping?

Me? Well... not quite. Since I've been blessed with this wonderful thing called Unemployment, my shopping is being left til the last minute and let me tell you - THIS SUCKS!

And to those of you finished? Booooo to you!

I'm not done at all! I still haven't got one for my mom. My family is sooooooooooo huge that we're just doing a secret santa and a dirty santa exchange...we all drew names and stuff and it's under $15. I got my brother-in-law Bubba.... Home Depot gift card, here i come!!! He's sooo hard to shop for I have 8 nieces and nephews, 2 great nieces, 3 sisters, colin, my mom, my aunt, my cousins, my cousins kids...all of them ... I'm soooooo glad we did a secret santa, i would have never had enough to buy them all something. I did however buy a lot of stuff for my sister Kimmy's family (they're having it rough right now) so I did Christmas presents for her kids, her, i haven't got my bro-in-law Jason anything yet but i will if i have the $. I am also buying my mom something, and i've already got Colin's presents, and Colin and I got my best friend Renae's present. I still have to get my "brother"/best guy friend, Jonathan a present. Uhhh.....I need more time. Thankfully though, it really doesn't matter what we get in my family - we all know the true meaning of Christmas, and are happy just to be with each other, the gift exchange is just something we do to symbolize the greatest gift of all..., it reminds us of the importance of giving, and the graciousness of recieving. So it's kind of nice

I'm just about finished and all wrapped. I mainly have to get stuff for stockings! And a few more things for the cats..
post #14 of 28

Two weeks!

No, I am nowhere near done and money is tight this year, so stockings are going to be filled from the pound shop!

I'll probably make some things and hopefully - if I can get in the spirit of things - get some online shopping done today!

I'll be making another trip (or five) to the Christmas Market though, so I can get some unusual bits and pieces!

Everything is purchased and almost everything is wrapped -- I'm still waiting for one last piece of J's present to arrive before I can wrap it. (I'm a bit worried that it won't arrive in time for Christmas, but at least the bulk of his present has arrived.) This is a first for me: usually I'm buying and wrapping on the 23rd!

post #23 of 28
I'm halfway done!
Lil Sis-My Little Pony Snow Cone Machine(believe it or not, she's 15 years old )
Big Sis-gotta get a DVD
Big Bro-maybe some pants?
Dad-Gotta get to Mkto to buy the gift
Mom-foot bubbler for her feet that bother her

That's it.....except for the kitties & dogs. One dog is getting booties so she quits cutting her pads open, & I'm not sure on the rest of them.

Is the 2 1/2 yr old a boy or girl? I LOVE shopping for that age range.

4 gift cards
post #27 of 28
Done, done, done!

And wrapped! And decorated with bows and tags. And packed away in bags to be taken to my parents' since the kitties, while they have no interest in the tree, seem to want to shred my presents into the middle of next week.

All having just had hand surgery. Wow, am I good or what?! j/k
post #28 of 28
I'm pretty much done.

For those that I have left, I know exactly where and what I have to get.

BIL and fiance = giftcard to bookstore so they can get a couple books they actually want.

Nigel and wife (friends of the family that have done so much for us this year)- I'm making them a nice gift bag with lots of goodies. I'm getting them a few bottles of wine, some nice cheese, some nice tea and a cute teapot and cups.(they're into that sorta thing)

Dh~ I've got him a few things, but he asked for a new blender (loves making milkshakes) and a battery charger. so those are the only things left to get him.
