...To refuse to start thinking about Xmas yet?

I received an email this afternoon from DH's cousin asking for Xmas present ideas for DH and DC. I must confess my first thought was, 'For goodness sake, the summer hols have literally just started and we're in the middle of a heat wave! Xmas really is the last thing on my mind right now!' Quite apart from the fact that it's difficult to think of something DC will not only still be interested in in over five month's time but that they won't have somehow acquired some in other way.

AIBU to ask for a little more time? Does that sound terribly ungrateful?

Ask for vouchers then you can get what you want in December

YABU. Christmas is fantastic. Why wouldn't you want to think about it?

Yabu I usually start my shopping July/August

However this year I'm expecting a baby in October so I am aiming to get all the baby stuff bought by end of Aug then move on to Xmas

Maybe they have to budget both time or money wise, just pick something generic.

Fantastic when you're 5, sure. Not so much when you're 45.
