Everything, all done and dusted, going to start wrapping them all up soon.

All I do know is pick up little bits and bats/stocking fillers etc.

Nothing.

Just starting to think about it now.

Any ideas?

Georgimama Sun 07-Nov-10 21:14:28

Almost all of them, just the adults on DH's side to do (six of them but as three couples we tend to buy them joint presents). And DH but I know what he wants.

The boys' main presents and most of their stocking fillers.

MIL's stocking bits

Most of DH's stocking

Quite pleased with progress!!

Done 2 kids, 2 more kids and 8 adults to go. No idea what to get anyone. Will probably procrastinate til mid december and then get gift cards. I hate christmas shopping. Am very bah humbug about the whole thing. Never know what to tell anyone who asks me what I want. Wish presents were banned...

bracelet for sister, necklace for sil (beautiful, I know someone who makes her own glass beads)

Stockings for adults?

Really?

TheGoddessBlossom Mon 08-Nov-10 11:17:11

Yep - Dh and I always do each other a stocking, legacy from my parents always doing one for each other, and as MIL always stays with us Christmas Eve I think she would feel a bit left out if she didn't get one too. I love doing them. grin

As for presents being banned - they pretty much have for the adults in the family this year, on DH's side at least. We all picked one name and are buying only for that person, £30 limit. As it was pick a name from the hat, it has had hilarious consequences regarding who is buying for who. Should be funny to see what they get!

Pretty much all of it.

I still need to do my M&S order and stocking fillers for DS.

tummytickler Mon 08-Nov-10 11:41:35

I started well, but hit a finacial hiccup so have had to stop grin. I have loads to still get, but already have

ds2's main present
dd2's main present
ds1's main present
dd1's bits and bobs
Christmas Eve pj's and dressing gowns
a few stocking bits

Have got loads still to get as dc's tend to get lots of small bits at Christmas.

Need to get more organised when i get paid!
