Christmas shopping?

So since it's only october and we are all starting to think about Halloween, I was wondering. How early does everyone start Christmas Shopping? Do you spread it out or are you a last minute shopper?

  • I try to spread out my shopping because of how many I like to buy for (or make for actually).

  • I also started mine right after last Christmas. I like to buy things as I see them for people. I get better prices, and I'm more likely to find something special. I hate it when I have to "settle" for something instead of buying something that I really think they'll love.

  • I'm a last minute shopper, I try and concentrate on the holidays ahead and I don't get to far ahead of myself. However, I admire people who get their shopping done early.

  • I shop when ever I see somehting I think someone would like, esp. if it's on sale. I figure if I wait, it might not be there when I go back. Plus, I CAN'T stand crowds.

  • I've already got ALL of my DD's stocking stuffers. Michaels craft store had some awesome little crafts and such on their clearance for 30 cents to $1, and so I got a few different things there, and then I found a Suite Life on Deck card game on sale for $2. She will get some candies and such in her stocking, and a stuffed animal, but I will get that later. For the rest of the kids presents, I mostly shop on black friday :)
