I am finished with my shopping. I've wrapped everything except the grandbabies' gifts, because I may need to share some of those with Santa Claus and I'm not sure which ones yet :).  

 

This is actually weird for me, because I hate wrapping and I usually wait until 2 days before Christmas to wrap ANYTHING!

Not done shopping wrapping or shipping so it's 3 strikes we're out. :)

 

I still have one more big present and some small ones for my wife, we have more things for our daughter, just ordered stuff for nieces/nephews back in FL mostly done with everyone here. Then it's stocking stuffer's. Most of the stuff we have bought has been wrapped though.

Shipping first major batch of baked goods today. Another round to be baked, a few more small gifts to pick up. I'd say I'm about 80% done. :)


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

Nowhere close to done and not sure when it will happen. The weekends are so busy and there's only 2 left! Last year we wrapped everything on Christmas Eve. That's so not happening again this year! Maybe this weekend we can at least get some gifts wrapped.

You know we say the same thing yet every year we are still wrapping stuff that day/early evening. Whats the old saying those who fail to learn from the past are doomed to repeat it? :)

Not done shopping - haven't wrapped the first thing... been terribly sick since Saturday and can barely get around... seeing doctor on Thursday and according to what they find may wind up in the hospital... Merry Christmas to me. :(

I have 4 children 2 girls, and then 2 boys. Their b-days fall on Jan, Feb, Mar, and Nov. So, I kinda divide the gifts up. Since their b-days and Christmas are so close. Last year I bought my 10 yr old (boy) the Nintendo 3DS XL for $150, so this year he is only getting two video games. I was able to get him Pokemon X and Y for $14 each at Kmart. My younger son is 7, and this year I bought him a Nintendo 3ds XL as well. Same price! And was able to get Super Smash Bros. and Kirby for around $50 or a bit less. My eldest girl is 15, and was able to get her a Samsung Galaxy really cheap from MetroPCS. As for her younger sister who is 13, it's a bit harder. No stockings or Advent calendars this year, not in the budget.

I still have a few things to get; luckily nothing major. I have also started wrapping. My focus this week is actually on our Christmas dinner and what cookies I plan on baking. I bake on Christmas Eve but I would like to have everything purchased by this weekend.

I'm in much better shape than usual.  I think I have everything bought for the kids, except their "big" gift, which is picked out for each one, I just need to stop dragging my heels and buy them.

Still have my dad, and one more thing for step-dad, and gift for co-worker, and I think I'm done.  Besides stockings for 5 people.  Which are about half done.

 

Everything is wrapped except the stuff that was delivered yesterday, and the packages I am waiting to be delivered.  No bows or ribbons yet.

 

The danger with me being done this early is that I tend to buy all the way up to Christmas.  Hopefully I can limit myself to just buying stocking stuffers!

I do the same thing. Then the cycle of hoping it arrives in time and having to wrap starts all over.

I rarely wrap anything until much closer to Christmas.  My cats and puppy tend to rip the paper off and then I have to re-wrap it.  I'm 75% done.  Immediate family is done, including stockings.  We have a couple of friends and extended family members left but I feel good with where I'm at.

I am hoping that I can make candy and bake this year. I'm hoping it will keep me busy enough to not shop anymore. I keep seeing things for the grandbabies and I am so tempted but so far I have only gone over budget  a little bit and I have not used the credit cards so I feel good about that.

yikes.. when i saw the title i was thinking yeah right ...like someone is even close to done?? well i guess i so!! well done everyone..

i have done 99 % online this year i have stuff waiting for delivery, not to mention stuff i need to sort and wrap ect.

 also i just had a group of women who went out of their way to give me an unexpected  WONDERFUL combined Christmas present,  these are women that i normally would not buy for, and now have to figure something out for them..then wrap and deliver them too.

now thinking about it i still need to get microsoft points and a few other gifts as well.. so i am not even done shopping... lol.

and i have tried to be on top of it this year.lol

I'm about 97% done shopping. Aside from 1 gift card, I could be done but I know there are some other things I will pick up.

I have everything I've bought this far wrapped. Took me all day Sunday but I'm glad to have that done since its the bulk of it.

I sat down yesterday and did as much as I could online. Even bought gift cards online if shipping was free just to avoid an extra stop at a store. I have my mom and husband to finish up.
