i have some crackers (for cheese) and biscuits which were on offer recently, some christmas crackers in the loft leftover from last year, a couple of tins of sweets, I've made quite a few christmas cards, and that's about it so far!

I always start early and have bought quite a lot of presents already.

Can't tell you anything though in case the kids read this thread!

Nothing!

Wanted to get holiday done before we thought about Xmas but it's unlikely we'll do much for a while other than make a proper list so when we do buy we can do it all at once.

If we buy sweets and stuff early we eat them!

I've bought quite a few presents as well, and I bought my gift wrap and tags in Costco the other day.

Bought some biscuits in M&S the other day and yesterday I got a box of chocolate mints from Thorntons as they were on offer :D

Ive got quite a lot already. I got many stocking fillers in the sales last year as well as all my wrapping paper, christmas crackers and christmas cards. I have also been putting away tins of sweets and biscuits to.

So I only have the kids main presents to get, but I cant get them to early as they seem to change thier minds nearer to christmas :shocked025: So I wait until im absolutely sure what they want :p015:

Well actually all of my presents have been bought for a couple months now.

And I actually got suckered into buying my christmas cards already. They were so lovely and couldn't pass them up. :D

So with that being said, I guess I'm done.

My DW Sally is the Queen of after holiday shopping. We have most of our gifts already. She likes to hit the outlets in Williamsburg after the holidays and we get some really great deals at Eddie Bauer, LL Bean, Columbia and the like.

Ok, I did it and I can't believe it. I got DS an Elmo Live! God help me, I"m already annoyed and that was just after hearing it in the cart! :lol:

I have a few things. I just have to find them though. I tend to stash presents throughout the house and then once December comes I can't find anything!

All I've bought is a ' Christmas' scented Yankee candle :( Not looking forward to Christmas this year as my darling children will be with their father as it's 'his' turn.
