I cannot believe that Christmas is only like 17 weeks away seriously where did this year go. I usually start my Christmas shopping early October every week I would buy something small and but it away it all adds up as you do not realise by the time you get to December and find that you have so much stuff it sort of takes the stress out of Christmas just that little bit

  • YAY! Christmas is nearly here! My fav time of year!
    I always start my shopping in July – thats when we have huge christmas sales, and take advantage of the extended laybye til xmas eve. This helps whit storage!

  • This is something my husband and I do yearly as well. Grab things during the course of the year on sale or maybe items not often seen when we are somewhere new. We put it towards Christmas gifts and even birthdays, just find it easy to build things up than try and do all the mad rushing around on or near the date.

  • Every year, Christmas becomes less important to me and I loathe shopping once the shops start playing those damn Christmas Carols – bah humbug :-)

  • I used to do the mid-year toy sales but my kids change their minds too much these days that what I buy now will probably be out of the mix come Christmas. My son’s birthday is less than 3 weeks and I’ve got nothing for that yet either – eekk!

  • I try to buy all year round but have to say it is getting harder now the kids are getting older and not into toys as such now

  • I try to buy all year round so I don’t get to Xmas and just buy random stuff, it takes the pressure off

  • Yes another year nearly over. I need to start my shopping.
