Yes i started Xmas shipping for my girls about a month ago. Just a few things so far, i’m trying to be super organised this year so as not to stress at the last minute! Lol I have also been thinking of things they like and browsing online for the best price etc when i have the time.

I’m finished. I did it all online yesterday.

I do need a new Christmas tree though as I donated my one to my local sporting club last year with all the decorations bar the star and the keepsake ornaments.
Hoping to have that sorted by the end of the month.

I spend November focusing on what food I need to get and get all the roast meat out of the way then I start putting money aside for the veggies and whatever else I need ... this happens up to a week before Christmas.

Haven’t been shopping in an actual shop for Christmas presents for about 5 years now ... literally the beat decision I ever made

Whenever I see clearance or specials on toys or gifts others might like I grab them. I leave the gift cards until last minute for 2 reasons - so they don’t run out and Christmas has the best specials on them. Just keep an eye on how much you buy, otherwise it’s very easy to overbuy and have too many presents.
