    I just wondered if any of you ladies in the 1st tri have started xmas shopping. I only ask cos i am soooooooooo tired that i can barely function, let alone think about Xmas, but know i have to start!

    My MIL has my daughter on Monday afternoons so i think this is when i am going to have to do it, so considering starting today!! I have no idea what i am getting anybody tho either (apart from DD, she is well catered for lol!!!)

    I havent even thought of Xmas shopping yet. I am however very excited about Xmas coming... but I think I will start (and finish) my shopping end November or even December ;) I'm always late on getting pressies, haha.

    I only have my hubby to shop for...and he was easy, I bought another Xbox ( we have three cause he can't touch mine LOL)
    Everyone else is getting home made teddy bears...my dad passed away a few years ago and I think we are all getting to the point where we can deal with it. So I am making bears out of his old clothes for everyone.
    So they get that and a baby in May :p
    Im not a big christmas person. So I get it really easy

    Sadly I've started shopping already...I am trying to buy from small businesses/local artists/crafters instead of Boots and Argos like I usually do - so I've got to start early! Though today I went into Primark and went a big mad with the pjs - may need to use some for pressies! Oops!

    i've got a few things for some family members and my little boy (through the fall I pick up things as I see them, particularly if it's something that might be hard to get during the holiday season and they have them in stock now) but to be honest, shopping kills me now, I tend to get nauseous when I'm out and I have to cut the trip short, all the stores are so hot inside and it just triggers it :dohh:

    I've got the remedy - its called Ebay, Amazon and basically anything online - saves you getting up from your seat and you can post messages here at the same time!!! Seriously, I swear by internet shopping - just make sure you use recognised websites and that the payment page is secure.
