When do you start buying Christmas gifts?
I admit to the past few years buying my gifts last minute from Amazon so I could have them shipped across the country. It was a lot cheaper to just get Amazon Prime with free shipping instead of mailing stuff myself. I did keep stuff on a hidden "wish list" all year though.
I'd like to do it the way my mother does it.. She seems to do her Christmas shopping alllll year long and then has lots of neat stuff to give people at the end of the year. That sounds better to me than blowing a chunk of money all at one time when you already need to travel and stuff. Plus, the gifts are always perfectly suited to the person she's giving them to because she picked up stuff that's reminded her of that person, no pressure, no rush.
I want to get to that point, especially now that I'm back close and dont have to ship it.
What about you? When do you start Christmas shopping?
Though admittedly I have stashed them and forgotten where they are at times and had to buy new things.
