Can we rephrase the question: Who hasn't started shopping???

I am done with DH, both fathers, my mom, Dh's sister, all 3 children (nieces and nephews), 2 siblings (out of 5 I buy for).

I still need to buy for 5 people.

I also need to make 2 albums for my nieces and nephews- I am doing counting books for them using Seasame Street characters. I am thinking about adding to mom's gift by making a clear album, and I am making a Christmas word book for each of the girls.

Me three. We have picked up a couple of stocking stuffers but that is it. Everyone is super tough this year. My SIL & BIL are probably moving somewhere in the fall so BIL can go to Grad School. They are difficult to shop for already, but I know they aren't going to want "stuff" because they don't want to move it. And they are health nuts, so most food stuffs are out. Same problem with FIL & MIL...they have had their house for sale for over a year, and are living in two towns. They don't need "stuff" either. If they already moved, then we could do something for the new house, but since we don't know what the new house looks like...DH doesn't want anything that costs less than $100 (we have $150 limit for each other)...and I think I broke our new laptop's screen yesterday . It's not a complete budget buster if Dell won't repair it under warranty, but it's not exactly the best time to ignore the budget and buy him an iTouch. And my parents are the type that buy whatever they want. Last year, I made my Mom a scrapbook, so that's out for this year. And then there is DH's Grandpa... love him to death, but he is essentially blind, which makes it hard.

Usually I'm finished by now .... not this year!

This year will be a light one.
Guess DH & I will talk about it over the weekend.

I have started. But like to do my shopping on Black Friday and be done. I've been picking up things here and there. been getting some good deals on HSM, CR, &HM stuff on the clearance rack at target.

I'm waiting to see if there are any good DVD deals. There is a huge list. But so far I havent seen anything in the BF ads that I cant live wiithout which is odd.

We draw names in the extended family, there used to be so many, now it seems like there isnt. there was 7 kids in the kid pool and 3 are mine. But i pulled 2 tink fans and a huge mickey fan. So for them I am making wall decorations with my cricut and vinyl. Fairly cheap and gonna put my new carts to good use.

I have everything bought for the people at my work and at DH's work. I'm picking up SIL's (DH's sis) today (fingers crossed!), and then that'll take care of her family. I know what to buy everyone else--it's just a matter of going to get it! It'll take me about two hours to completely finish shopping, so I think DH and I are going to finish it when we go out for our anniversary!!

i'm about 3/4 of the way done.
NOTHING wrapped. I just hate that part. i don't know why, i just do. i'm usually last minute for that.
i'm stuck on sil. she is so hard to buy for. i haven't a clue. she has 2 -yes 2- full pandora bracelets so that's out. i bought her a vera for her bday so that's out. i haven't a clue!
a lot of what i need is gift cards. so that's easy.
ds has a few more things on his list that i need to pick up.
and i want to take ds out to buy dh's gift. that's the best part!!!!

I'm usually finished by now, but I haven't started! I did finally corner DH into discussing what to get his mother and sister so at least I now have some idea of what to get them.
