When I lived in London it was literally days (2) before Christmas, when I went back home to visit my parents as I did not want to take then on the plane with me, but it was always a panic and hassle as my Mum was a bit difficult to buy anything for my Dad was easy a good bottle of malt Whisky. :mrgreen:

I haven't done any yet and will probably leave it until the last minute, as usual. However, I am likely to have a lot of unsold stock left over from the exhibition that will need using up. :lol:

Honestly, I'd forgotten it was Christmas next month :oops:

No idea what to get people. If it can't be bought on Amazon, they'll just be receiving our good wishes ;)

Is this the stabbing thread?

I enjoy Christmas shopping when I can find decent gifts for people, but it's getting more and more difficult each year. Shopping for my 3 1/2 year-old nephew is the highlight.

:D It is the stabbing thread. Maybe I should revise the title.

It does get harder to find good gifts for people, and also to find things to surprise them with. I love finding something unexpected that really makes someone happy.

Dotsie, with all you have going on, you're allowed to forget what decade we're in! Nothing wrong with shopping online. My goal is to not have to set foot in a store after Thanksgiving.

About two thirds done with the shopping. A few bits to get for the kids and I'm still stuck for what to get for my Mum & Dad, but going out for another try tomorrow and I'm really going to try to get most of it finished.

Hubby and I mostly send gift cards to our moms, kids and grandkids as we all live so far apart and shipping costs almost as much as the gifts. :roll: This way they can buy what they want or need. I'm putting together a few things for my coworkers. I've got two more to go and then something for the boss. The cards are bought and I just have to write them out and post them. Usually a chore I reserve for the day after Thanksgiving. I don't do Black Friday. Those shoppers scare me! :o

I haven't started yet but I'm not bothered. I have a budget and an idea what to get family. It'll get done, it always does.

Maybe a few gift suggestions would help make the thread less stabby.

Here's one I came across while browsing, William Shakespeare's Star Wars.
