Yes. Lockdown was a good opportunity to order Christmas presents as so many companies were having excellent sales. I have even wrapped and written the gift tags.

Yes, I got quite a few in sales during lockdown. Infact just bought a couple item's today for friends. At the beginning of year I got wrapping paper / tags etc from Tesco in sale for 10p / 20p each.

Christmas is expensive so it makes sense to me to spread the cost & nab items in sales. The only people I wait till later in year to buy for are the little ones as what they want/enjoy can change very frequently.

I got a box for presents. It includes various bits for males or females which I can whip out as needed for birthdays, xmas etc. It includes nice gift sets from Ted Baker, etc, for men I hot some watches, aftershave... I buy it when I see a good deal and it always comes handy if I get an unexpected invite or just want to say 'thank you' with a little gift 😁

I have had a look for presents and I have made a list of items that I would like for my son and family and I am keeping an eye out for when these go down on price, if they do. I haven't actually bought anything yet.

I’m starting to think about it but July is a horrendous month of birthdays and expenses, so I’m going to have to wait a while until I can afford to start.. iβ€˜m currently pregnant and due at the end of September so I think I’ll be slightly distracted leading up to christmas!

dholly39 I think also kids if school age always feel like competing with others of who got the best gift etc but thankfully my kids are grateful and don't expect loads they're happy with reading books colouring books crafts the simple things.

I’ve bought quiet a few Thanks to all the great deals shared on LD. I like to buy things on a deal then they get more gifts for the money I spend on each of them.

Yes I seriously started! I would never usually be in the mood this early but the extra time through lock down gave me more time to search.

We a have few bits, when the kids were young we used to buy throughout the year as and when the deals were on but then they were happy with most things we also used to pay a weekly amount into an hamper club for a food hamper and sweets, A large tin of Quality street would be around Β£20 . Now thou we wait to find out what everyone wants . Also these days there are sales and offers on right up until Christmas and most shops now clear their Christmas stock before Christmas , not like they used to years ago .

I've finished and I am in the process of wrapping them up, this is to stop me buying more, as visually I need to see how much I have bought for each person πŸ™‚

I always start on the 26th of December each year as the bargains are there to grab hold of and being on LD is easily 1 of the best ways to get those bargains.

Not way not ever, way to early to even think about it. I hardly do any when I do finally think about Christmas. I have really cut down and no one has moaned. Saved myself loads of money. We now prefer just to have a meal together.
