Has anybody started planning or buying gifts for Christmas? I know it's a little early but I HAVE to start next month(august) or we won't be able to get gifts for everyone on our list. So am I the only one or has anyone else started doing theirs also?

yes, i start early also, it is so much easier to buy a little each month than all of it 2 weeks (or less) before Christmas

I start planning for Christmas as soon as I am done school shopping... we live on a very tight budget so the earlier i can plan the better

I just bought my first xmas present the other day. I mainly wait until black friday and get most everyone done then for 1/4 of the price any other day. I can't do much ahead of time cuz i'll forget that i already got someone something and end up getting them 2 things...lol

I am usually done with Christmas shopping by February! I stock up on stuff during the after Christmas sales. The only one I have to buy for is my ds and I'm waiting on him to see what he will like by Christmas time. Last year he just got books and clothes because he was too small for toys. I am so excited to buy for him this year because he will be able to play with everything and open his gifts! I will probably start shopping for him next month.

I started in April, Wal mart had clearenced toys so I got them 4 each but they have recieved 2 since then. We'ved decided that they only get 3-5 toys this year, each get 2-3 new outfits. Then we'll get my mom an outfit, my brother something, his (dh) brother/wife something, there 2 children something and then with my uncle we do xmas gifts but this year we're drawing names so everyone gets 1 name so that's another 4 presents but we wont do that until Thanksgiving.
