With just six weeks to go before Christmas, have you started buying any Christmas presents yet, or do you leave it to the last moment?

I only buy a few anyway, and I have already bought these.

I bought a few online, and one the other day when I saw something I thought someone would like.

I hate going to the shops near Christmas as can't stand all the people and the parking problems, and will do all my shopping online with deliveries from now on.

Very sensible, Finy :-)

I am not so huge on Christmas gifts, but the special people who I do give to are well and truly sorted,as I tend to purchase all through the year when I see things I think they shall love!
I am more into sending Festive Wishes, and Season's Greetings which covers so many celebrations as well as Christmas. I always like to get cards sent to my overseas friends in good time, though the 'domestic' ones can often be left till almost too late!! I used to make everything,both cards and gifts, but I am no longer physically able to do much of this any more! A pity,but such are the journeys which life takes us on.It is definitely the thought which is important.
Yes! *puffs out chest* [0^0]

I feel like it makes it more commercial, but because we have a BIG Church Family...I now need to prepare a good few months ahead, if I have an idea or see a bargain.

Only because my money is tight, so careful planning is all important, and that a quality gift is given.

Buying online is a great way to go for me.
Mixed with a little leg shopping.
I haven't bought anything yet
by AJ
Yes I have! I find that if you buy items too close to Christmas time, it's all the same. But I like to buy things a few months before Christmas, so it's different to everything else. You might also be able to grab yourself a bargain if there is a sale on!
None yet. We have 2 small children, but don't really get them much - all our extended family tend to spoil them so they don't need much from us. Usually just some new swimmers or toys for the swimming pool that they can use on Christmas day. I'm terrible with leaving things until the last minute!
Yes, I'm almost finished Christmas shopping. There are just a few things the kids and I still need to make ourselves.
Yes, I have bought presents for five people thus far. Another four to go.

I start my Christmas shopping at th January sales and purchase throughout the year as I see things I want to buy. Ive already wrapped and tagged all the presents a few months ago so I'm super organised and have also frozen the seafood I need for our barbie as I do every year.
Oh! Helga, that's just TOO organised! Lol!

I buy my Christmas presents throughout the year when I see something family members or friends may like. Also, if I see something cheaper, it is best to buy it then, to save a few dollars. Buying things throughout the year spreads the cost out. If I did all my shopping at the last minute, I would need a wad of cash to pay for everything at once, which I don't have, nor do I want my credit card to go over the limit, simply because I left my shopping to the last minute. I like to be organised and buy things well before Christmas day.
Yes I have bought a few, still a few more to go. I tend to buy throughout the year as I always like to match gifts to the particular person rather than just buy generic presents. It also means the cost isn't so heavy if you leave it until the end of the year.
I do it differently than most. I save $7 per fortnightly pay during the year which gives me $180 approx to spend on Christmas gifts. My "year" goes from late October to late October. Early November I keep a look out for specials and have fun buying without wondering where the money's coming from to cover it all.
I've only two to buy, & I'm meeting up with those recipients this week, to ask what they'd like.
I'd rather do that, & get something they would enjoy more.
My daughter will be 'spokesperson' for my baby Grandaughter, I think!
She sure will be donjo. Have given up thinking that I have enough intelligence to be buying for my grandson.

Hi fran.....I, too, now have a Grandson, so ditto applies. It's always easier, I think, to either give my daughter cash, or specifically ask, what she thinks best for her children. We always have a great time going & buying whatever. It's a win-win sitn I fully believe. Cheers to you!
by donjo
Weíre bought a couple for the 2 little grand-daughters, & Iíve bought 1 small 1 for my husband. We donít buy presents for anyone else in the family. Weíre giving money to 1 of our daughters for her U.S. holiday in 9 months. Thatís it. Easy!
Have bought a few presents when I've been out shopping and seen something suitable. I don't have as many people to buy for these days so it's much simpler than years ago. Back then I had to be really organised and would buy presents through out the year.
