We don't really buy gifts for special occasions.  We're more likely to buy what we like when we see it.  Christmas would be the exception-I prefer to plan ahead and know what's being given to whom, but DH is exactly the opposite.  So overall I'd say NO, we don't plan gift buying/giving.

For two years in a row we've been finishing gifts on Christmas Eve.  I told him if gifts aren't done by Thanksgiving this year I'm not participating!

Yes. We already have almost all of our kids gifts for the holidays and I know what I want to buy for our niece and nephew so I'm just waiting for a good deal.
