I have finally started my Christmas shopping. I never begin too early as I feel it’s all part of the seasonal excitement. That being said, I hate the stress of leaving things to the last minute and panic buying.
I’ve made a list of everyone I need to get presents for and a budget for each person which I’ll try my best to stick to. The list isn’t that long to be honest and it’s generally close family and kiddies that I buy for. This year I’m finding it a struggle to decide on gifts, even for my girls (aged 6 and 3). We’ve yet to do the ‘letter to Santa’ as it’s a bit early so I hope they have a good idea of what they want. We normally tell them to ask for three things but not to expect to get all three.
This is what I have bought for them so far:
I spent hours on notonthehighstreet.com the other night. I ended up only buying two gifts as I got too distracted looking at things for myself or the home.
This is what i got:
That’s all for the moment, I know it’s hardly anything. I better get my skates on and stop being distracted by wanting to buy myself presents.
Just to say, when I do online shopping, I always go through the cash back website tbseen.com. I know there are lots out there but I quite like this one. You may as well get something back for all the spending. It means I can justify myself better. I also make sure I look out for special ‘points events’ for stores like Boots.
Please feel free to send me some ideas.
