How early do you start Christmas shopping?

I actually found something for my mom in June and bought it, but usually I start in September or October. What about you?

  • We always wait till the last min. because my hubby says thats when all the good sales take place but if I had my choice I would look for things throughout the year.

  • usually late september-early october..once i start, i get done fairly quick. i'm used to being super-busy from october-NYs (working in a salon), so i got into the habit of getting it done and over with. plus, i get to enjoy the holidays for what they are, instead of rushing around from store to store.
