1. Did you start your Christmas shopping?

2. If you're not done/haven't started yet, what kind of gifts are you looking to buy?

 

I was already assigned to make some clay ornaments but I haven't bought any gifts yet (I usually start around November but I like to bookmark items)

That's really good! I am watching several items here as gifts (but not Christmas gifts) and some stuff for myself too.

I have a very small gift list and don't actually purchase gifts anymore.  Mostly I make baked goodies or fudge for Christmas gifts.  [biggrin]

That's sweet of you!

I used to pride myself on being finished by October 1st. with all my Christmas shopping. 

I wish. I did notice the toy section here should be loaded up. 

Some Vintage ones here but not many handmade ones. 

I will try to do some personal shopping here this year.

This is really scary - I'm a week-before-Christmas sort of shopper myself [smile]

I try to get something for everyone in my family. Adults it may be something "useful" but that they wouldn't necessarily treat themselves to, or something for their hobby. For the kids it HAS to be a toy or activity item, as a voucher or socks is pretty boring to open on Christmas.

I like the way you think!

I shop/look for items year round, probably because I make Christmas items year round!  My sewing room is a big fabric candy cane factory from June to December, and I frequently play holiday music in July!  My neighbors refer to it as Santa's workshop!  Sooooooooo, I am always in the mood for spotting that perfect item for a loved one, and definitely plan on doing some shopping here [smile])

hope this is allowed...want to show my latest addition for other shoppers

I am sort of one of those "I know it when I see it shoppers"...I have always seemed to find more perfect gifts that way than looking for something specific, lol!  Guess that goes along with shopping year round [idea]

I do not buy gifts any more or decorate. My husband and I used to camp on the beach dunes in Flagler Beach for two weeks during the holidays so we were never home and I quit decorating. Since he died  I spend the day alone just like any other day. I do go to church of Christmas Eve and celebrate the Lord's birth. When I did shop I always liked to wait till after Thanksgiving to start. I know I am odd. LOL

No I have not started shopping yet.  October November I will.  On our other site we are already getting Christmas orders.

I plan on shopping here for the few gifts I need.  We are usually so busy during the Holidays that getting together with family for good meals and family time is the highlight.
