Christmas Shopping Deadline

When do you usually try and have all your Christmas shopping done by?

I usually have my shopping done by now b but my husband gets paid every other week so I'll have to wait until the 15th to finish I think. We are going this week end to start getting what we can. Little by little I'll get it all done up. So I'll have to say the 15th is my dead line.

I usually have mine pretty well done by now, but this year I'm waiting for a royalty check before I can shop. I may be doing it all the week before Christmas. But that's okay. My granddaughter won't have time to figure them all out before Christmas morning.

Deadline? There's a deadline? Well....I won't go out on Christmas Eve so it all has to be done by the 23rd. I'll only go to Walgreen's and stores like that on Christmas Eve. I don't like huge crowds!

I buy 75% of my stuff online so I try to get the big things out of the way first. I'm usually running around at the last minute getting last minute things...stocking stuffers, etc. So there's no set deadline for me. I try to do better every year but it never happens!!
