Christmas Presents - is Everyone Done and Dusted?

Ask a Question

Is everyone nearly there for Christmas presents yet or is it just me who feels a bit panicky with quite a few bits more to get. I also never feel like I've given enough, is anyone else the same?

What do you think of this?

I haven't bought anything for my son as he is one and doesn't understand Christmas yet. Not getting anything for my parents in law as they are in New Zealand, so we agreed not to do presents this year. Got my husband and my parents and my granny presents and that's it. I didn't get anyone any presents last year and none of us were bothered as we had bigger issues going on.

I wouldn't worry about it. Give what you are able too and never feel like you haven't given enough. You went out and spent your money on others, that's what counts.

studentgirl123 I think people get really hung up on presents, when the most important thing is having a nice day with loved ones.

I think that's a good idea when kids are young. I remember seeing someone else (here I think) ask if spending a few hundred on their 2 year old was enough! It's way more than enough - it's crazy - they won't know the difference at that age!

I have all mine in now, just need to wrap them which is the tedious part.

All bought but only half are wrapped. I've been wrapping only when I need to hand them out. Need to get the rest done this weekend

I’ve not finished buying gifts and I’ve not even started wrapping the ones I have bought. Ordered something this morning to be collected Christmas Eve so fingers crossed it arrives in time. No need to panic just yet.

Am I the only one on here who have bought and wrapped all my Christmas presents and wishing I had more to wrap? I'm feeling a little lost now because this time last year I was still waiting for my last delivery before I did all my wrapping

I finished buying ages ago, but I need to wrap most. That probably doesn't help you not panic though!

But, yes. Even though I get presents that seem more expensive than they are (it helps to get good deals), I sometimes feel and wonder if I've not got people enough!

No but I’ve ordered a couple more presents online. Some will be delivered to local Waitrose for collection Christmas Eve and others to be collected two days after Xmas. In fairness to me I was only told a few hours ago what they wanted so I can just blame them for not giving me sufficient time.
