Ask a Question

When do you start your Christmas shopping?

Do you pick up items in the boxing day sales and save for next year?

I pick things up all year round whenever there’s something I see that I know would be a good gift for someone. I tend to start looking more seriously from the middle of the year onwards though as I don’t have space to store a lot.

Never shop on Boxing Day really, and have never shopped before December lol, since I noticed a while back how many great deals you can get over whole years my wardrobe is always full of stuff hahahaha, then I just choose who gets what 🙈so it’s been few years now I grab good deals over a year and then just give for Christmas, when all my family struggling with presents two weeks before Christmas and spending a fortune in once and Crying that Christmas cost them so much I am like .... I am going out for a nice meal hahhahhahaha

I can't be bothered with Christmas until it's Christmas. So I get things late, like 20th, 21st...

AimeeLea It's just a culture thing where I come from. I was always awestruck when people say it's only 158 days till Christmas!

I have started, if I see any good deals I tend to buy them and put them by and try to do most of my shopping online

When the children were younger I used to pick up bargains through the year, now they are older I get something they want at Christmas.

I pick up some stocking fillers in the boxing day and January sales and then I don't tend to start Christmas until after my daughters birthday in July.

If I can avoid it, I try not to pay full price for every gift I purchase
