Has Anyone Bought Any Gifts Yet?

Just wondering if any of you have started buying gifts yet or is it still too early?

I bought some stocking stuffers and other knick knacks but nothing significant yet. I do look out for bargains and ideas though.

It's never too early for me. I already have things in the gift closet. A lot of my gift recievers are gardening lovers and now is the time of year to buy items for them to put in thier gift baskets I make. I have even given hubby my Christmas list as there are some things that are out in the stores that won't be there at Christmas and are great bargains.

I started collecting stocking stuffers during the after-Christmas sales but I haven't yet started on the gifts. My family has all our birthdays packed into June and July, so now that the birthdays are behind me, I will start work on Christmas.

This weekend will be a great time to start since it's Virginia's tax holiday on school supplies and clothing.

I haven't started shopping just yet but I did make a list of everyone I need to shop for and what I think I might get each of them. I might actually start shopping in a few weeks. I'm making a trip out to the mall on the 11th of August so I'll likely have a bag or two of gifts on that day.

Yup have couple totes full of gifts already. Got few outfits and PJ's for each of the kids, got gifts for other family memebers and friends. I already have about 1/4 of the gifts bought.

A friend recently gave us 2 huge totes full of geotrax train sets in mint condition. Her sons rarely played with them. We are giving them to our son for Christmas. He will 2 1/2 by Christmas.

I am hoping to some wrapping - maybe September, to be realistic. I think I will buy some paperback books at the used book store and wrap them up for MOI!!!! I love to have something good to read when the after-Christmas exhaustion sets in.
