    :gift: When to start shopping

    Hello everyone,

    I really wonder when is the best time to start all shopping? I guess sooner rather then later but one is so busy. When do you all start?

    The Warmth of Christmas,

    Do you mean food or presents? I started present shopping months ago. I'll probably do the Christmas food shop about a week before Christmas

    :gift: The sooner the better

    If you want to find unique gifts then the sooner the better. Something that is truly unique is not mass produced. Maybe they are produced 200 - 300 at a time so they run out and it takes a while to restock them. This is especially true with online shopping. Also because online orders are shipped there is always the chance of breakage so you should leave yourself time for a replacement to arrive.

    Of course if you are giving the most uncreative gift ever - a gift card - you can wait until the night before.

    Happy shopping.

    :gift: Shopping

    Hi,

    Yeah, you are right it is time to get going with shopping. Don't you find it harder the closer it get to Christmas? It seems like people leave it to the end and in a crazy rush goes shopping. What about on-line? Do you buy stuff there?

    I'm not a big fan of malls so I buy as much online as I can. I think that it is easier and you can find things faster. I've never had a problem so I'll keep doing it.

    Buy throughout the year so there's no mad rush. If you see something for someone, buy it if it's at a good price.

    Sales are also good for Christmas shopping
