What gifts have you already purchased?
 
I shop year around which really helps since I have more than 80 people on my gift list, with many of them receiving multiple gifts. I have been purchasing things here, and there and have been getting things that are more "useful" for many of my recipents other than getting knick knack like items.


What have you purchased so far, and what sort of things are you thinking of getting?

I've purchased quite a lot for the children and will be making a lot of home made gifts for the adults this year so am starting to stock up on Kiln jars and bottles to make chilli jam and cranberry vodka!
We go to France on holiday soon so I will keep my eye open to see what lovely things I can pick up!

We've got some things in our "gift box" that we keep---when we find something that would make a good gift for someone, we buy it then and there and put it in the "gift box." Around Labor Day we take inventory of the "gift box" and make a list of people we still need to buy for.

And I've got a couple things for Mr.---a bio of Bing Crosby and a Hawaiian shirt with a Red Sox motif ... shhhh!

I bought mostly stuff for my oldest, who is 3, since my baby's birthday is next month (already got his bday stuff done last month!) I got him a bunch of stuff for great deals on clearance... a Cars set with all the cars characters, pirate ship, some crafty things, hmm.. a few other things that I can't remember, which is good I guess! It'll be a surprise to me when I wrap them ,lol!

For the parents or people shopping for kiddos - Target's toy clearance has begun! Stuff is mostly 30% off at my store and some 50% stuff mixed in. One year, I scored BIG TIME with a bunch of 75% off deals! Over $300 worth of toys for $80!!

More than 80 people??? :o And here I thought I bought for a lot of people! Lol! That's great! I would be at a loss for what to buy! You go girl! :)

I bought 2011 ornaments for 2 of my Godchildren, & a baby's 1st Christmas ornament for my hubby's new Goddaughter. I also bought a piece to the Fontanini nativity scene for my Goddaughter. This all came from Bronners so I got 2 free ornaments too! :D
