    Hello ladies,

    My mum suggested to me to start getting Christmas bits and it's probably a good idea 'cos if I don't do it early I'll probably leave it too late!

    Has anyone else thought about it? I'm just starting to look online and get all excited :happydance:

    Does anyone have any ideas, my son will be 10months old... Corr so then I'll have to think again for his b'day two months later!!! :wacko:

    I was thinking i need to start planning for christmas and Vinnie's birthday as they are only 1 month apart.
    I'm gonna start buying bits and pieces when i see them esp if they are on offer

    I know its not everybody's cup of tea, but, i quite often get some really good bargains at carboot sales so i'm gonna keep my eyes open there too x

    Nooooooooo don't even mention the word around me. It is Summer and I cannot bear to think that Summer will end and the evenings will be dark again :cry: I'm not even thinking about the c-word until the clocks have gone back!

    Haha, I know it seems like ages away but I just think how quickly the last few months have gone! Scary! I'm just looking at getting lots of little bits. Ah I haven't been to a car boot since I was little! I'm getting excited though!

    Me and OH love christmas, he has a countdown on his phone already haha. we pay weekly for highstreet vouchers and we save in our credit union. In november we go to toys r us and buy everything in one go. It will be even more expensive this year with 3 kids to buy for. Anna will be around 9 months so Im thinking a little baby rocking horse.

    Yep I have decided what to get my eldest son and plan to go and get it soon, getting him a android tablet, much cheaper than the ipad!!

    Not sure about my little man he will be 11 months so OP we are in the same position, not going mad with Jacob though he will prob be more interested in the warpping paper and the boxes!!

    I am buying things now but that is only because OH wants Sunderland clothes for LO and by time it gets close to Christmas the things he want won't be in stock :)

    Not yet, but I thought the other day I could do with starting to think about it and decide what we are going to get. I am not going over the top this xmas thou. As everyone else buys tuff for both of them, so they end up with too much stuff and Liv never plays with half of her stuff.

    I've already got my lo a mamas and papas rocking animal, picked it up a while ago whilst it was on offer otherwise i wouldn't have thought to get that but i'm really happy with it :) i did wonder whether to save it for his birthday in March next year but got something else i want to buy him for that now. I don't think we'll buy him loads as i'm sure it'll look like toys r us in our home after what everyone else buys him. I'm really looking forward to it, not sure what to expect from a 9 month old but i can't wait to snuggle up on xmas eve watching christmas films with him xxx
