    I tried that one year waiting until like a week before Christmas ( I was a lot younger then lol ) it was fun doing it but now with 19 grandkids I start early and love every minute of it. I imagine what they're will look like when they open their gift. Oh how I love Christmas.

    I'm too much of a planner to shop last minute. The stores and roads are too crazy for me the closer it gets to Christmas

    No last minute is not for me. Too many crowds. I actually like to be done by Thanksgiving, and lately, as I get older, I shop a lot online.

    I shop about 85% online and go to the stores and fight the crowd black friday and beyond with my family.

    I would imagine most of us are probably early shoppers since we all love Christmas. I can’t imagine doing it last minute. I am too much of a control freak for that. I use an excel spreadsheet for my list and menu! My husband does it last minute every year, but guess what- he can’t wrap! So guess who gets stuck bolting the basement door shut surrounded by wrapping paper, bows, tape, and scissors while the ham is in the oven every year lol! I’m used to my gifts being in bags by now (its hilarious since its slim pickins for those too, he often gets the ugliest bags available because there is nothing else on the shelves, hahaha!)

    All of my presents have been bought and wrapped for weeks. I let my daughter purchase the gift she wanted me to give to her fiance. Well she ordered it last minute and here it is, the evening of Dec. 22 - and no gift yet. With tomorrow being Sunday, she better hope it gets here on Christmas Eve, or I will be wrapping up a photo - and of course, the gift is an ugly Christmas sweater (he collects them) that he won't get to wear until after Christmas!!!
