I'm not sure if it's just because it's getting to be that time of year or if it's the 3rd trimester nesting/planning thing, but I am almost done Christmas shopping. It's a little crazy. In a good way.
Just this week I bought P part of his Christmas gift on zulily. (yay sales!) I also used my Pampers Gift Reward points to order something for Lily and a giftcard that I'm not sure if I will use as a present for someone or keep for myself.
And this morning I used a coupon code and my Target RedCard to get all of my nieces and nephew their gifts. $45 for all 4 of them. Yes!!! Of course I'll have to add some shipping onto that since I'll have to send them their gifts.
I've made gifts for most of my family members. A scarf for my sister, kitchen hand towels for my mom, a hot/cold rice pack for my dad. And I bought my brother a sweater on zulily several months ago. I also bought Lily's present from Santa at the JBF sale a few weeks
ago. And I picked up a doll on clearance at Target last week. We will
probably get her one or two more things but honestly I feel like 3-4
things from us (and Santa combined) is enough because she will be
getting presents from everyone else too. I keep picking up small things
on clearance or in the dollar section at Target for her stocking. The
hard part this year is doing it without her noticing as she is with me
when I do most of my shopping.
The only presents we have left to get are for P's mom and dad. I have ideas for those too. And I need a few more small things for P. Again I have a list, I'm just watching for sales and also trying to spread the Christmas spending out over the paychecks so it's not all at once.
Anyone else already Christmas shopping or am I just crazy?
