Is anyone else Christmas shopping?

Just wondering if anyone else has been doing some Christmas shopping. I don't know why I get so excited about it but it's about the only kind of shopping I like to do.

I've made a pretty good dent in my shopping 2010. I've bought gifts for DH's coworkers, most of our extended family, close friend gifts, one thing for my mom, and a couple things for my girls and am close to being done for my 2 year old. I have two ideas for neighbor gifts but haven't decided which to do this year and which to do for 2011. One idea is a book that has lots of Christmas stories in it, intended to be read together as a family. I found that after Christmas for about 75 cents each. (Score!) I bought enough of them to use as neighbor gifts so if I go that route, I'm done with them too. The other idea is one I had already planned for 2010, but haven't decided if I will stick with it or push it back one more year and do the books this year.

What have you bought/made for Christmas 2010?

Good Lord YES!!!! We have the 4 neices almost done, just need to get their ornaments. In the past 2 weeks we have picked up gifts for our kids, another Thomas Train set for our son, a game for our daughter that she has been wanting and a joint game for the 2 kids along with a few small stockin stuffer items. We already have christmas PJ's for our son just need to find a pair for our daughter as well as their Christmas Ornaments from their magical elves. Already started other extended family members as well. I plan on heading out on my lunch break today to see if I can find anything else. I am always on the hunt for Christmas gifts!!!!

Sounds like you are well on your way completing your Christmas shopping too. Nice Job!

Not yet... we sold our house last month and moved to a family member's house temporarily until we buy another house.. now we are moving to ANOTHER family member's house in 2 weeks because we still haven't bought a house (grrr!). Anyway, I would be buying but lugging all that stuff to our storage unit or from house to house would be a pain. I hope to hit up Target's toy sale again late this summer and get some great deals like I did last year. I spent $80 on toys and got over $300 worth of stuff! In fact, I still have some toys leftover from last year for my niece's gifts this year!!
