Re: Poll: When do you do your Christmas shopping?

My condolences @Poppysmum on your loss.

 

As @Cleoriff has said it helps to think of the good times. But I can certainly understand you are very far from Christmas spirit under the circomtances.

Definitely @Cleoriff .. It's not a time of joy, it's a time of buying useless crap because someone bought useless crap for you. It's a time for fat cats to get fatter. For the poor to feel poorer. For the weak / pressured to get (further) into debt.

 

Leave me out of it!

Totally agree @Anonymous

Though I have cut down who I buy for. Only my 2 sons, grandchildren x2 ...and husband. That's it.

I never buy useless crap either...joy

Re: Poll: When do you do your Christmas shopping?

@Poppysmum

Really sorry about your loss, it must be even harder with this time of the year. My condoleances, and as the others have said already thinking of you today.

 

@Cleoriff @MI5

I have to admit I also get most of my presents online. I find it much easier to browse all sorts of options at the same time, compare, share the good finds and decide! As my family is in France as well the presents I get for them need to be ordered online and delivered there rather than bought here and sent via mail ... it's all about practicality isn't it slight smile

 

@sheepdog

I'm sorry I didn't think of all these options LOL

 

@TallTrees

Do you also do most of your shopping online then?

 

@Glory1

I'm curious if you get the presents here, wrap them and send them to America and Australia or order them online to be delivered wrapped directly there - as I mentioned all the presents that go abroad for me are ordered online and delivered there directly but it'd be interesting to hear how others do it gift

 

@MrFrenzy

Do you usually go to the same places for your day out shopping or mix it up every year? I like going through festive craft markets for ideas.

 

@liggerz87

You seem pretty relaxed about it though so all good joy

 

@Anonymous

I always try to get things that are useful or that I know the person was planning on getting sometime, and in my family we agree to spend not too much so it's really about lovely gestures between close family and friends for me. It can be done really thoughtfully hugging

@EmilieT the days of me buying presents, wrapping them and then lugging them to the Post Office are long gone. A friend told me about having them wrapped and sent to any address you choose and I jumped at it. Like you I order all my presents online and then have them wrapped and delivered USA, Australia and the UK. 

 

I can't wrap for toffee, so at least my friends get lovely wrapped presents not the dog's dinner they'd get if I wrapped them joy

 

I'm lucky to have 2 local Post Offices but even so why should I kill myself lugging them to the Post Office when I can organize it to be done when I order online. 

 

The only thing I post are my Christmas cards. And my nearest postbox is across the road from my flat. So when I take down my rubbish Thursday week, I'll bring all my cards with me and pop them in the postbox, job done smile

Hello @EmilieT

 

I do not buy xmas cards online.I make gifts gift and give them usually edible i.e. small xmas cakes  cake, chocolates  or pot of  this years fruit apple strawberry from garden jam.  They are little treats really.
