I'm sorted for the kids although I'm sure if I spot something in a shop for one of them I'll get it and could probably do with a few more stocking fillers.
I need a couple of bits for my mam, sister and my neice. Some wine to go with my dads present and something for FIL. Also some things for my new neice.
I also need something for J's nursery teachers but that will just be a tin of chocolates and some flowers for his group teacher, something for E's teacher and Girls Brigade leaders, again just a tin of chocolates.
I haven't wrapped anything or even bought wrapping paper or cards, I'm going to get them on Sunday and start wrapping. I'm feeling pretty organised actually.
What about you?

I have most of Isabella's stocking and that is it!... I haven't even got a list sorted, I am doomed. I think I will need to leave I at home with Daddy for a few hours and blast town next week.
Card wise I have lost my bloomin card list which I have updated every year since 2005 so need to do a new one of those too.
Basically I am in denial that it is December tomorrow.

I'm doing ok, a few stocking fillers to get & some vouchers. Oh & some more stuff for Mr. K. Need to wrap & write cards, don't know when I'm going to start that

VE I would be in full on panic mode if I were you. Shame about your card list.
Kellfi - are you sorted for L?

More or less SW, I want to get him some books, craft stuff, stocking fillers & the phone from Toy Story3

Well done. They are at an age now where you could just go on spending couldn't you? I've told J if he is good in bed tonight that we can write his letter to Santa.

Yes, I could buy him tonnes more, but it gets silly, he has loads already, but as you'll understand, it's the first year he's going to get it

I have finished the eldest, her H and her son. nearly finished the next one and her H and kids, hardly started with the next, 4th one is finished, 5 th one is nearly finished and lastly L is finished. I have my dads but not my mums. I have my BIL but not my sister. I have H's brother/SIL and their kids done. I have the kids grandparents done. I have finished H

Wow, SM that's a lot of presents to buy.
30/11/2012 at 21:10
tell me about it and hence why I want someone to come and wrap them all for me!

I do see a box of lindt truffle balls staring at me, they are talking to me too, saying eat me eat me....

Do it in stages.
I'm going to do mine like that. I'm going to do everyone's but the my kids presents on Sunday, ready to go under my tree next Saturday. Then I'll do the kids one's one night if H is out and I can sit in peace, get Christmas songs on the telly, have some wine and wrap till my hearts content. Also I don't like H to see how much I've got for the kids, I like to see his face when I get them all out on Christmas Eve, he is always shocked

I did some the other day and I spent 4 hours doing it earlier. I might do a bit more in a bit. The big things for the older kids I might not even wrap lol
30/11/2012 at 21:17
There's most of H's family left to do but they're getting small bits as we've made sure the kids in the family have got worthwhile presents. I'm just sorting out something for O's godmother-to-be atm.
Done the kids - maybe just a few extra stocking fillers. Have everyone else still to do though!

STAY AWAY FROM THE TRUFFLES.
My mam does it the other way. Wraps things like jewellery, clothes, pj's, slippers, perfume, big present then puts all of the little things in a nice bag unwrapped.

Done all presents just need to wrap
Xmas hamper done
Cards written ready to go
Tree and decs up
Food shopping list kind if done but I need to decide what we are having for starter and breakfast on Christmas Day
Still to get - eyebrows and eyelashes done, Xmas haircut for L, reindeer dust, Santa stop here sign, decorate Williams grave, and I think that's it. Starting my wrapping next week

Everyone else? Erm, I've got my friend's childrens, part of my Dad's and know what else I'm getting for the other part, got a little bit for my brother, and nothing for anyone else. So that leaves my Mum, something else for brother, my other brother, nephew, Grandad, SIL and brother's gf - tbh I'm not that worried, I've usually hardly bought anything by now, although I don't have a clue what to get anyone!
Have Christmas cards and wrapping paper, but done nothing with them! We have just filled C's advent calendar this evening so at least that's ready for tomorrow
