We got a large family with lots of children. I don’t usually wait until the last moment. I get things when they are on special.

When do you start buying Christmas presents?

  • I buy throughout the year when I find items on special.

  • As soon as xmas is over, if I see something on sale or something I think someone likes I buy it, then it doesn’t cost a heap at the end of the year and I find I buy presents people love rather than rush buying

  • I start keeping an eye out just after Christmas – if I see something great, or on special, I pick it up.

  • I’m like you. I buy things throughout the year when I find them on sale.

  • i shop all year when things are on sale

  • I buy all year, and store in cupboards. Love my catalogues and there is no big expense end of year x

  • I have a gf that starts in june.

  • Because we have a large family i start in january and buy here and there throughout the year

  • I like to get them early as I hate going shopping with huge crowds. Last year I was expecting our Bub in late November so I wanted it all done before then. I started in June when the EOFY sales were on.

  • usually mid year but any time I see a bargin ill grab it

  • I buy presents all year round and use them for various birthdays and Christmas presents. That way you can buy things on special.

  • I like to buy during the year, I try & set out sometype of plan on what I would like to get each child & then keep an eye out for when it comes on special. The older kids are starting to get alot harder to buy for. We do a kris kringle so that helps keep the numbers & $ down.

  • I get things on sale throughout the year and get things on a huge Christmas sale from big w or target.

  • I normally start in October & for the past few years have done all my Christmas shopping online. It is certainly less stressful & everything is wrapped & ready to go before December.

  • At christmas time so I get something they want or need as kids especially change their minds on what is in and out of fashion etc.
