I've been to town tonight without N and managed to get all of H's presents. I'm pretty much done now.
What have you all got left to buy?
My final list is (looks a lot but actually could do it in half an hour at the retail park!)

-E is almost done but need to know if BIL is actualyy going to have a look at sorting out our old desktop comp for her. If not I'm thinking about getting both a Xbox to share. H needs to paint the desk he built her too. Need to get a DVD player (with certain features to please H). Also need a couple of other bits but waiting for my mum to let me know what she has got from the list of ideas I gave to her.
-I is done really but I keep thinking of new things to get him
-Got mum and dads voucher for some spa to phone up and get.
-Think about what to get my uncle (usually alcohol related).
-Need to think about what to get 2 boys next door - any ideas gratefully received (6yrs and 9yrs).
-Childminders to buy for.
-Works secret santa to get.
-3X dogs to look for.

Still not started! Today I bought wrapping paper and cards.... Not they count as presents though
06/12/2012 at 22:27
I'm done - have been doing it through the year which is lucky as I have had no job for nearly 2 months!
07/12/2012 at 00:01
I think I'm pretty much done- I just need a couple of more bits for my mum, my step dad's present and something for my Granda- I have no idea what to get any of them!
07/12/2012 at 07:56
Just the ils to buy for, no idea what to get them? Was thinking of a steam train trip where you get an a la carte menu? (I suppose a very cheap orient express )
Need to wrap : the kids stuff which is at Mils (have wrapped some), food shop, Xmas booze, wrap the teachers presents, tidy whole house, get my eyebrows and eyelashes done, post my neighbours Xmas cards. I think that's it x

We have one gift to collect which we a getting sat night but the rest is done and wrapped. I can't stand shopping in December so started most of mine in September. People complain that it's smug but I do it out f necessity. We never know how H's work situation is going to be near Christmas so I try to do it when I can and also negotiating shops with two toddlers when they are packed is not much fun. Saying that I did about 90% online again this year. So much easier.

C's was done ages ago, and i keep buying more things despite saying I won't!
MrDD's I've got most of now, just a few little bits to go with it, although what I have got is a bit dull.
Sorted for my Dad, and my friend's 3 children (who are usually the most difficult) and have a couple of ideas for my mum (just need to decide which one to go with), and some ideas for my Grandad. Have bought a little thing for my younger brother, but then still got his wife, older brother, his girlfriend and nephew to get, and I don't have a clue what to get them! We all do lists in our family, but no one has written one yet! Most of it has been bought online, and since I've got the free Amazon Prime trial at the moment I don't need to worry too much about delivery, and I've also got a morning off the week after next to go into town to get anything else there.
Everything I have got still needs wrapping though.

I need to buy an extra little something for my parents so will have a look today. E has been given more money so ill add a few things to her pile this weekend too. I only have to wrap Es, Hs and my parents and have already started. My MIL and mum have received so many presents to wrap up and hand out for us this year! I didn't want to buy here and post as the cost would be extortionate. I have posted Christmas cards from here but I wanted to send people Dubai style Christmas cards
I think I'll get a few more things for H too but it's not essential.

I'm all done, my family, H and the kids are all brought and wrapped. H still needs to sort out his family, but that's his problem. If he's not done them then it's his problem.

I'm done I think. Just the food shop to do now :-)
07/12/2012 at 10:22
I'm done. Although a Game shop in town is having a sale, so might see if I can get some more XBox games for C. Oh, and after me buying him the Angry Birds game for his 3DS, he's now obsessed, so I want to get him some Angry Birds stuff.
They're extras though, so doesn't matter if I get them or not.
