    On my blog, Kris Kringle For Singles, I showcase gifts and entertaining decor that I search the internet for. European landmark ornaments, affordable and unique supplies for entertaining, cookbook gifts, and more.

    Its so much easier than rushing around in December trying to find something for everyone! Besides, the more I buy now, the less tight my budget will be later!

    Thanks Marshmallow World for the motivation!

    You're welcome!

    I don't enjoy rushing from one place to another, and with so many, many grandchildren, I'd flip out if it all had to be done in a short time. I love seeing all the gifts wrapped and placed under the tree or stacked in the guest room until I put them under the tree. Right now they're in shopping bags in the guest room.

    Normally I would be almost done by now, but:
    1. Extended family is cutting WAY back this year due to the bad economy
    2. No young kids anymore. Youngest niece is 12 oldest is 26!
    3. My kids (16 and 25) are asking for money

    So I only have a few actual gifts to buy. I guess I'm waiting for the rush!

    My shopping is about a quarter of the way done. I have so many people to shop for so it makes it kind of tough. I am just waiting for those black friday deals!!
    Need the perfect Christmas present? I know of something that is just perfect! It is affordable (under $15), personable and everyone will love it. Want to know what it is? Shoot me PM and I will let you know!!

    Idea:
    My boyfriend and his best friend want to make a 3 week road trip through Eastern Europe(Slowakia, Poland, Hungary etc.) in the spring and I wanted to do something for him to encourage and support him in this. I searched and thought a little and now I pretty much have figured out what I will give him:
    - A guide with cheap hostels and information on cities/nature in Eastern Europe
    - An anwb(traffic organization) book about rules and regulations on the road in those countries
    - A guide with cards/roads in Eastern Europe.
    - A piggy bank with a small amount of money in it as a start of their fund.
    That's a great idea!

    Well, that's not really so funny. I'm embarrassed that I can't spend more; people get such little gifts from me. We have so many grandchildren.
