    Default when do you start planning for chistmas presents?

    2 weeks before Christmas. We generally do Kris Kringle so only have 1 present plus kids presents to buy.

    I head to the shops for 2-3 hours and done!

    Sometimes I'll buy earlier if I see something online I want to get the kids but wait to heist as to give them.

    I don't believe in going overboard for presents though. 1 toy for each kid plus summer clothes and books, so it tends not to need much planning or notice.

    Right before Christmas, last year I think it was about 3 or 4 days before that I started shopping.

    I will probably do the same this year, Dd doesn't need much so it only takes me a couple of hours to pick things out and I find there are some really good sales around Christmas.
