    My Christmas shopping for my daughter is all done :-) but she's only 5 1/2 months old so she's easy to buy for, it's my parents, siblings, ILs and nieces and nephews that are the difficult ones to buy for!

    Lalalalala I can't hear you!!!

    my house is exploding so I have no clue what to get the girls!

    Dhs family don't celebrate Christmas, but we have 2 x Eid where they get gifts. We just had dd1s birthday and 1 Eid and I have a pile of toys and other bits to get out over the next few months.

    Was planning on a cubby but we will be moving in a year or 2 so not sure if its worth it.

    thinking about going to the Gold Coast with dh, the girls, my patents and brothers and brothers girlfriend for a week so may just pay for the flights,accommodation and theme park tickets.

    Started for the boys. Just need stocking stuff and whatever DS1 tells me Santa will be bringing (had issues with that last yr)

    Everyone else I have no idea and we have huge families. I have about 15 people to buy for just with parents and brothers/sisters for me and DF.

    Nope. Can't understand why it takes people so long to shop for Xmas presents? I do most of it last week in November to beat the worst of the Xmas rush. How does it take so long to do Xmas shopping?? I wouldn't even know what people would want this far in advance.

    I'm a late shopper too. And I always go back on Christmas Eve or the evening of the 23rd. I love the atmosphere.
