Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.
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.
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.
