Does anyone else have trouble with self-control over giving gifts?

So, I never want any of my presents early, but I can hardly stand waiting to give others their gifts! My parents just came over for dinner, and despite them telling me not to, I pretty much gave them everything that was in the stockings I made them (yes, I've decided to make everyone stockings in addition to their other gifts, lol). Now, I'm going to have to go out and buy more stocking stuffers, haha! I have no self-control. If they had let me, I probably would have given them everything I've bought them so far! :)

And if my husband says one more thing about needing a new wallet or sweatpants, I think I'll rip open what I've gotten him so far and throw it at him, lol! I can't take it! The excitement is too much! I'm like a kid!

  • I keep giving my son gifts. Its always stuff that he could really use now or that benefits me too (like a movie I want to watch with him) lol

  • Oh yeah, and I've already given my son a set of blocks. My reasoning (to myself) was that he's too young to understand anyways and everyone will be giving him a ton of stuff, lol.
