Well done CP! I've got loads left to do but that's how I like it, I don't like to be finished too early, I love going shopping nearer Christmas and getting the atmosphere etc.
I've finished my nephew and my friend's 2 children. I've got my niece left to buy for but I'm getting her clothes so will be easy.
I know what I'm getting my dad. I know part of what I'm getting for mum.
F I've been struggling with, still doing research!
A I know everything I'm getting, I've got quite a bit of it.
M I've got everything for her apart from stocking fillers.
I have 2 friends to buy for.
My grandparents I haven't got yet but it's usually just vouchers.
I have however got all xmas cards.

Well done cp, mine's not going as well as I'd like.
I'm done for my 3 neices and nephew, I'm mainly done for my kids, just need bits and bobs and stocking fillers.
I haven't bought anything for my H, my dad, sister or PIL.
All I've got for my brother so far is a book and for my mam a bag.
I need to get stuff for our Christmas Eve Hamper.
Christmas Eve PJ's.
Wrapping paper and tags.
Erm sorry you aren't done if you've still a few more bits to buy
I'm going to Bluewater tonight with H as they have the Boots points event on. Going to buy the girls a shampoo set each, one a smellies set (as have a set already I got in last years sales), nail varnish set each plus some perfume for me from H. Then New Look to buy them a onesie each and maybe hat & scarf. set
Once that is bought I will be done on the present front. I need to buy for H but am getting him a night in London with dinner & show so nothing to actually wrap.

eurgh CP, I hate organised people
I've got stuff for M, a few bits still to get though, I need to do a list for her (since hers was ridiculous "I want a snowflake, a cake, a penguin and an owl. Not etend ones mummy real ones that go hoot hoot and walk like this" (waddles around)I've substituted a snowflake for a post office game, and a penguin for a jigsaw - same thing really innit?
Stepson I've not even started yet but he did his list last weekend so at least I know what I'm going for.
H i've got everything on his amazon wishlist which came to £25 need more stuff for him but got some ideas.
Nephew I'm still waiting for my sis to tell me what to get
Got my sis, two BILs, need to buy for my brother, and three SILs (off to Boots Christmas event tonight!)
PILs, got nothing and no idea what to get them. Thinking restaurant vouchers
Mum, no idea what to get her either.
Two nephews I need to go to Hollister shop as they are getting tshirts, need a voucher from there too for friend's daughter, antoher niece I'm told she likes camper vans and doctor who - god knows what I'll get her.
Oh, best get boxes of biscuits for H's uncle who always buys the kids something, and the woman in his office who always gives them vouchers.
sorted for other nieces. H's friends kids I still need to get for too. So hard to know what to buy them especially as they get older.
I'm going to try to get everything bought by end of this weekend, I'm tired of looking at stuff!

My children are done :o)
I've got a couple of bits for H, and I know he wants a football shirt, once I've bought that he will be done.
My family, we're going to do secret Santa, so just waiting for that to be organised
H's family are doing a secret Santa so same applies there
My niece is done, H can sort out the nephew as he is on his side of the family.

I am not listening to you lot as I have so far bought some stocking filler presents plus chocolates for the advent calendar thingy. That is all. You are all far too organised
Actually what will normally happen is that H will end up ordering all the stuff that is coming online and I'll do the shops. He's much better at this than me.

Not.Even.Started. I'm so disorganised this year i could actually weep. Normally I'm done by now and I can't believe its mid November already. Have had a rough couple of months with one thing and another and having a 15month old on the go all the time doesn't help. Some major online shopping needed! I'm so stressed now reading this thread!

Done- my brothers, aunt, cousin, brothers girlfriend, nana's x 2, step mum. Got idea for step dad but not bought yet.
Half done- H, (not sure what else to buy) my mum, friends- know what I'm getting just need to buy.
No idea at all- step grandparents, my dad, granddad, male cousin. Men are the hardest to buy for.
My H sorts out his side of the family, it will be last minute as usual!
