Have you ever FORGOTTEN where you HID your early-purchase Christmas gifts?

I used to. A couple of times I bought gifts so early in the year that I forgot all about them, and purchased a second gift for the same person. :-(

  • I did that this year for my oldest son's birthday. I have never really purchased Christmas gifts early until this year. I have a password protected file on my computer with all the details of what I have and for who, so I don;t end up doing that again.

  • No, but I can never find the Christmas cards. I must have five sets somewhere.

  • yes, every year!! lol I do most of my shopping just after christmas and then hide the all and just about every year I have to look and look to find them all. There have even been times where I don't even know that I am missing any and have found them 2 years later.

  • yes, but I always find them before Christmas. My mother made it tradition in our family though - she ALWAYS forgets at least one present, usually one for me.

  • Yep. I am well known in my family for forgetting things and so far I have forgotten at least one gift that I hid away somewhere only to find it months later.

  • I forget something every year.

  • Luckily I have an outdoor building with a lock I put them in. Otherwise I would probably forget every year.
