      Has anyone started theirs yet? I'm hoping to start mine a bit earlier than usual this year. I seem to have a habit of leaving everything to the last minute and it has not been uncommon for me to do all my Christmas shopping on Christmas eve ha ha

      I will confess to not have started yet, I just don't feel Christmassy at the moment :( really need to get myself into that Christmas mood to push myself to get some shopping done to be honest. I have been known myself to leave some until last minute and I hate doing that as I always forget something :lol:

      I gotta go along with Shortie. The time just isn't right yet for Xmas shopping. XD I'll wait till it's around that time to commence the Xmas list.

      Started this week. I have to start early or I feel that I'm running behind once December gets here. I started with my son, and bought about 60-70% of what I'm going to buy for him. And I made a pretty good list of what I want to get for my nieces and nephews, its the adults in the family that I haven't got a clue about.

      I had bought some gifts already almost two weeks ago.
      And would just buy again some more for my nephews to complete my Christmas gifts. Maybe last week of November I will do the shopping for those gifts. I really start my Christmas shopping early to avoid too much congestion on the malls and market area. Also to save more money for other things for Christmas.

      I don't start my job until the 28th and won't get paid until two weeks later, so I won't be buying any Christmas presents until around mid-December. I'm not sure what I'll be getting my family, but I'm sure I'll come across something.

      I haven't started mine yet but I've been making my list and asking around for people's ideas on what they would like.

      I don't celebrate christmas but I do love shopping. I buy stuff on black Friday and then go shopping after christmas for all the stuff on clearance. If I did buy presents for everyone I would just buy the small ones after christmas for next year and that way I could save money and time.

      Did i mention that i'd bought Minecraft beta for my daughter? Think i said that. Anyway, she is already playing it. Really loves the game too. Though for the money i paid, wish she'd play more. She often goes back to free classic multi-player server.

      No, but in all seriousness, we have done some christmas shopping that early, and we're doing some now too :)
