When Do You Start Your Christmas Shopping?

Other

The next 4 month starting the first week in August I shop for presntes. Then in september I make a Christmas cake. Then the 1st of November I make a Christmas pudding. When do you put up your Christmas tree up. My go's up the 1st of December and warp the Christmas presntes up and put them under the Christmas tree. Then 10 days be for Christmas I do a big shop for Christmas and New year. And in between all this I knit jumpers scarfs and blankets to give has presntes has well. I all so do sewing has well. Come Christmas I am all ready for it. Fingers cross.

I usually start when the kids go back to school after the summer holidays. Get a bit in each week.

That's a good Ida. When kids are back at school. The n they can't see what you are getting. Or want it.

I normally start shopping round about November time, but we only have a few people to buy for, so it doesn't take me that long. I start budgetting for it around August time.

I usually wait until late November, but if I see suitable presents before that I'll pick them up.

nicolajaynehend I only got a doll for my daughter and an other toy which was not in the deals, but it has the best price in the year right now. Later I will get into it more, around October will get all the presents for everyone.

So sorry to hear about your husband. And you are lucky to have your pressies. Money tight for me has well. Buy now I would have one or two Christmas pressies. But this year I am finding harder to get any thing. And I all so get little pressies has well. But still not find any thing. Some time in August has a sale on. And I've all so got to get the dogs budgies horse all a little Christmas pressies. My dad is the hard' s to get. My mum passed away 12 years ago. So it's dad friends and family. Just keep looking and keep my fingers cross.

It tends to be in Autumn; around September. I generally have a fair idea of what people like and what to buy so I keep an eye out for good deals from then on.

I plan to start it in August but last year I didn't get time to, waited until November and got ripped off massively because all the prices had gone up! Will be more organised this year 😂
