Do you do all of the Christmas shopping? Do you do it even for yourself? Do you do all of the wrapping? Do you make the gift list?

I do a lot of the shopping but DH is always a big help. We do most of the legwork together.

My husband and I buy online mostly and he's usually the one that finds the good deals.
I'm better at finding them in the stores. So if we're shopping anyway and I see something, I'll get it.
I do all the wrapping though.

It sounds as though you have good teamwork. It is so helpful when somebody is able to find the good deals online and in stores.  This year my husband helped wrap presents, and the wrapping took half as long. :)

Yes, I choose all the gifts. I let my husband buy two gifts for his dad.... he ordered the wrong things!!!! He doesn't read, just picks and buys. I have to correct it now. I will justdo it all mmyself.

Sometimes this is what happens with my husband, too.  And he usually has a logical (to him) reason.

 My DH and I share the Christmas shopping. The presents are from both of us after all.
