You are definately not alone! I havn't bought any yet but only because I'm sure they would be found before Christmas. I do have a list of what I'm going to buy tho. Checkout the Christmas countdown if u havn't already, there r loads of us over there.
I haven't started with presents yet because I've just had DD birthday last month and DS is December. They change their minds more at this age I find (11 and 13.6) so I leave the main presents until nearer the time.
But stocking gifts buying starts in September (just when I see something I like really)
I'll buy from QVC Christmas in July (24/25). Then I'll get fleece PJs for the Christmas Eve Hamper when they arrive in Primark.
I'm finding their presents are getting smaller and ££ so I need the little useful gifts to bulk it all out. Though DS was a bit at the very nice M&S trunks I bought him. "You're a teen. You need respectable pants and Lynx" I said.
Buy DD underwear and a load from Lush and she's tickled pink.
