I have my SO’s big gift, a little gift for my BFF, and my mom’s gift.

I too like to pick up things for people thorought the year. Come December, I’m usually just buying stocking stuffers and putting the finishing touches on everything!

Last year we said we werent doing gifts… And I knew he was planning on surprising me with diamond earrings, so I surprised him with an iPad!

This year we’re expecting a baby in February… So really: No gifts this year!

I actually just picked up my first gift today! I’ve decided I should just start getting things when I think of them instead of putting it all off until December.

@Laurenplusalex:  Whaaaaa……you just about made my heart stop.  I just got my mind wrapped around the fact that school started again, and the leaves are falling, and not going to the pool anymore………!!!      🙂

@Laurenplusalex:  Nice gifts! I think they’ll go over well 🙂 I too try to get thoughtful ones.

My SO is getting a Tour de France book that came out for the 100th anniversary (for this year’s tour) since he’s obsessed w. it. My BFF is getting a Star Trek mug (I’ll get her more gifts later) since she is into that sorta stuff. I bought my mom a cute cardigan as her main gift (she loves that sorta thing).

I’m planning. I think I’ll be making quilts for everyone except my FI. I’m not sure what I’ll do for him.

I have. I have most of the gifts I’m giving friends bought already. I know what I’m getting FI. I’m going to get him a laptop in November for Christmas.

@Laurenplusalex:  We’ve already gotten a lot of gifts and created, “The Christmas Hole” in our house where they are stored along with my workbench for my niece’s hand built dollhouse this year….at our house, Christmas crawls from a hole!

I’ve already decided what I’m going to buy for most people, but I haven’t bought anything yet.  I may start next month.  I like to plan ahead.

Me! My dad is really getting into baking bread, so I got him two great bread-making cookbooks and I’m going to get him some related equipment next week at our registry completion trip: a scale, proofing basket and some other things. I also have been researching play kitchens for my niece… buying that soon too. I love shopping early instead of taking the whole hit in December! DH and I both have January birthdays, so we try hard not to be too tapped out at Christmas to celebrate our bdays.

@Laurenplusalex:  I holiday shop the same way as you, although I’ve been in a tight financial situation this last year so I haven’t been too diligent. I think this year I’m just gonna bite the bullet and only get presents for my nephew, even if it makes me look cheap. The adults don’t need presents.

i started…i do four sections- his dads family, his mom side, our family, and my side–of the four sections- i am working on his dad side-i have 16 more gifts to get.. his moms side- probably 10 people’s gift, our family hubby and three kids, and my side- i dont know what we are doing- last year we only did gifts for the next generation( neices and newphews andyoung cousins- pretty much if you are under 18 you got a gift, if you are over 18  you get a meal and entertainment that night. lol

 

i also make treats for every family member and the school and my dentist and chriopracter– the number of boxes of treats  90
