Well, I’m about 3/4 of the way done wrapping things and there are lots of presents under the tree…
but hopefully FI will wrap my presents soon because I’m feeling a little presentless. lol 😛
Anyone else experience this? lol

I have not even started wrapping yet! Half my gifts are just being shipped to my parents house where we will be spending the holidays and I will have to wait to wrap them until I get there on the 21st. Oh well. I did unpack all my gift wrapping supplies yesterday, so I’m headed in the right direction! I always stock up on gift bags/wrap etc after Christmas on sales and save it for the following year.
On the other hand at least I have gifts purchased. I’m pretty sure FI has nothing to wrap yet because he has not gone shopping yet! I purchased some gifts for his family already and he said he wants to start shopping maybe this weekend. But I know FI and he will be out shopping Christmas Eve!

We haven’t gone Christmas shopping yet. We probably won’t for another week. Time is flying by too quickly. I’ll start to panic soon, lol. We haven’t shopped for anybody.
I like to shop online and have things delivered by early Dec, but things just didn’t work out that way this year.

Well, FI went shopping, but I’m feeling a little… squinty eyed about whatever shopping he might have done. He was gone for a total of 1.5 hours, but he had to come back to get his wallet, so he was really only gone 1 hour…
And it takes 20 minutes to get anywhere AND he claims he went somewhere unusual (in addition to somewhere in the city) and outside of our town or the nearby city and I can’t think of anything. That leaves him 20 minutes to buy stuff go somewhere else and buy something else. I literally cannot think of anything he might have gotten me. I keep joking that he went to the dollar store or something and bought all my gifts there.
I hope he didn’t because I got him SOOO many games from his wishlist (he’s a boardgamer).
ANYWAY, I hope my gifts (apparently there are more than 4… again he did this in 20 minutes, so I’m a bit dubious) are things I like and well thought out.
My whole family is coming to us (but staying elsewhere) the week right after Christmas, so all their presents from us are under our tree!
@MsW-to-MrsM: OH no!

I haven’t even been Christmas shopping yet, but when we do get out and get wrapping, none of the gifts under the tree will be for each other.
We have a terrible habit of splurging outrageously on ourselves during December/ January and consider that our gifts to one another.

Presents under a tree already?!?!?! That never happens in our house, but then that is because the tree doesn’t go up till Christmas eve.
I have bought one present and that is it at the moment (of the ones I have to wrap anyway)

DH had about 8 presents for me wrapped and under the tree before I had gotten anything for him. It really motivated me. CAN’T WAIT TO OPEN THEM!

right now we have one lonely gift under our tree. it’s for my husband’s niece.
i just ordered all my husband’s gifts, so they should all be here in the next week or so.
haven’t gone shopping for anyone else. we’ll do that in the next week or so.
i have no idea if my husband has gotten me anything yet. i told him not to get me anything, but he kept asking me what i want, so i made a list of a few little things i thought of. we’ll see how he does.
last year we went shopping together and basically picked out all our gifts, haha

I don’t have any under the tree!! But neither does FI. All of ours are our kid and family.
We each just took money to spend on ourselves lol. We’ll get each other some little things closer to xmas though.

This is our tree a little earlier today. The paper is sparkly, but it’s easier to see under the tree lights. 😀
