    Taken advantage of BOGOFs, 3 for 2s etc, throughout the year, now finished. :j This way I get a lot more value for my money and my friends and family get nicer presents.

    Maybe you should have replaced Christmas with something more neutral (or inclusive)...

    I don't celebrate Christmas, but I do buy gifts at this time of year,

    The two are not mutually exclusive,

    I've finished (female)
    I hate crowds, and don't much like shopping at the best of times, so I aim to do mine early before the worst of the crowds.

    I have almost finished my present buying, but this is because I have decided to try to buy as little presents as possible. I have new toiletries, new books etc that cost a pound or 99p bought throughout the year from my local 99p shops and poundland shops. (great for branded name products and good quality hardback books for adults and children). I will wrap these up and distribute these as presents to my children, grandchildren and friends, as my priority this year has to be debt repayment. I just need to find a present for my elderly mother and my youngest child, then get all the presents wrapped
  • Male - finished. The last delivery from Amazon turned up yesterday having been stiuck in a snow drift for a week.

    My wife's not nearly done yet, so boy, is she mad with me....
