Actually, I should have posted this a couple of weeks ago since some stores had both Halloween and Christmas stuff up simultaneously. Oh well, we will all spend money eventually.

Why do I wait? I guess I can be a natural procrastinator sometimes. On the plus side, I don't have to hide stuff for too long, and I usually have more money to work with that time of December anyways. :twocents:

Quite literally do it all on the 23rd/24th December. My family isn't big on Christmas or gift-giving, so we don't really go to any effort for presents. It's never really been a money issue (although some years it has been); mostly it's just that we never know what to get each other. We're not such an open family in that regard, so we just ask/tell each other what we want.

I already know what I'm getting for Christmas - a nice doona/duvet cover for my bed and a little bit of money. And that's just from my parents. My brother and I have an agreement not to buy each other anything.

For the most part I do it bit by bit as december goes by. I usually buy gifts when I'm already in a store buying something else and happen to see something that would make a good gift for someone. Then around December 23-24th I'll go christmas shopping for a couple things I may have missed, if anything.

I don't do any Christmas shopping at all. Either family goes out and buys really expensive stuff and says its from me, or I just make them stuff.

I kinda do it all in the last couple weeks before Christmas... it really depends on how much money I have to spend. I usually pick up presents for my sis all thru Nov/Dec.. I have a huge family and a lot of friends, so I have to buy tons of presents.. it'd be a pain in the ass, except I love it haha

I totally hate crowds. And I haven't figured out what's worse: sleazy salesmen that bait-and-switch or salesmen that act like I'm invisible. Then there's the fact that I can always count on someone in a huge SUV putting a new ding in my door and not leaving insurance information.

So... I do as much shopping online as I can.

I never really end up having to buy anything. I have no idea what to get people and my Mum loves shopping, even for Christmas. Usually she tells me this person will like this, if I agree she will then go and buy it and then I pay her back. When I go to Uni I am stuffed. I will probably forget to buy anything - I'll be a 23/24 person at the earliest.

I stop at the local chain store gas station (Sheetz), and buy 50 dollar gas cards for eveyone who drives on my list, if you don't have a drivers licence you get a check for the same amount.

Only 2 kids in my family are getting checks this year from me, but in a few more years they will be getting gas cards also.

The cards are free, no chage for the transaction and it takes me about 2 mins. to do all my Christmas shopping.....
