I shop all year for christmas 🙂 If I find soemthing that fits the the person personality that I am buying for then I grab it because I usually find that when you go back to get it they no longer stock it!

I plan on starting next month after we get back from vacation. Between SO and I we do at least six Christmas’s every year, so it’s a lot of gift buying. We have to put ourselves on a strict budget and start shopping super early to get everyone.

@cirk:  Umm… we bought my sister and her husband hockey tickets (which assuming the lockout ends before march, we’re good to go!), and DH’s family all requested that we just give them cash (weird… but whatever, not my family, not my fight) so I just need to get something for each of my parents, and I’m DONE!

Ooooh I do this always! I’m running late this year though… I barely even have ideas.

I’ll be trying to start that next month. Just need to get my little sister’s birthday present and then I will start 🙂

My stepmom has all of hers done already. She is quick. I will start when we get back from our honeymoon at the end of October.

I kinda have an idea for my SO. Kinda. My mom gave me a GREAT idea (a special tea pitcher… he’s a tea fanatic) but then a few weeks after she told me about it she also told him about it and that he “had to have it”……not cool! 😛

Usually I start to plan all the presents right now then buy in October. This year, other than SO’s  ‘maybe’ present, I’ve done nothing. I’ll prolly start next month.

I bought my first Christmukkah gift of the year two weeks ago.  I felt like a crazy lady buying so early but I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one!

I started shopping this summer. After Darling Husband and I bought EVERYONE’S gift on one day last year, I decided to split up that cost throughout the year. It’s been working out great so far!
