Thanks to Amazon's Lightning Deals, I am almost finished with my shopping! (Granted my husband may not actually WANT a 9.99 iron, but it was on sale!) [I didn't really buy him an iron.] I am looking for a deal on a couple more 'accessory' type things but other than that, I am pretty much done.

What I really could use now is more wrapping paper.

I'm almost done too. 2 things left for hubby, 1 for mom and 1 for my brother. Kids were finished a couple weeks ago. I'll finish hubby and mom today. Brother's has to be bought locally.

The stuff on Amazon's Lightning deals seems really strange to me. Stuff I would buy myself but wouldn't buy for gifts.

There are some seriously weird things on those lighting deals, I'll give you that. AND some of them sell out quickly. I think the oddest one I saw was a ukulele tuner - and it was 63% sold out by the time I saw it. crazy

A lot of the stuff I was already looking for popped on lightning deals this weekend, so I grabbed them when I saw them go up.

out of the frying pan...
I had intended to get most of ours done via laptop over the weekend, but every time I sat down and logged into eBates I had to get right back up and do something else. As a result, I have bought exactly 2 Christmas presents so far. Neither were purchased online.

I really hope to have a few minutes tonight to get some shopping done!

We're pretty much done. I think we have one person to buy for, and I have to figure out the Mrs, but that's about it.

We've got quite a bit done for the kids. Just have a few more things to pick up then some stocking stuffers. We only have a few gifts beyond the kids that we need to get so it should be fairly simple to get it all done.

I did purchase a gift online for our son on Friday. He wanted a range finder for when we're out hunting. We'd looked at the Black Friday ads and found one at Sportsmans Warehouse for $120 and it had really good reviews. I found the exact same one on Amazon for $116 plus I had a $20 coupon from a gift I'd purchased my husband for his birthday. So for less than $100, I got the same gift and was able to avoid the crowds! Gotta appreciate a good deal like that! smile And, it was free 2-day shipping so should be here tomorrow!

Kiddos and the BF's big gifts are done - Sanata still has shopping to do but since they are only 7 & almost 10 that will be easy enough

Done.

Started at about 9:30 Saturday evening and finished in under an hour. Nine gifts, all ordered online.

My wife does most of our shopping, mostly online as well.

I haven't even started cry

I am usually done shopping and the gifts are wrapped by now. Between, the new workplace, kids, studying for the CRCM and my husband constant travels, I am sooooo far behind. cry

Is a 9.99 iron almost a pitching wedge? laugh

I haven't started shopping yet, but my family stopped exchanging presents a few years ago since we already have so much. We only get gifts for my niece and nephew. There are just a few friends I shop for.

I've purchased a few items, but still have 3 nieces and 2 great-nieces to buy for. Other than that there aren't a whole lot that I buy for and my husband and I don't generally exchange - we usually get something that we want together or for the house.

Bought a couple of items on online, Hubby and I always take a day off early in Dec. and spend the day shopping together and do lunch--so waiting for our shopping day to do most of ours.

Hubby got a brand new car on Friday !! grin



I got a brand new car payment!! cry

Ditto JacksTigger on the shopping and lunch thing with the hubs but we spread ours over a few Saturdays. It's more fun that way and sometimes I can even get him to pay for some of the gifts, not just lunch! wink

When I updated my list last night, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I only have a few more blanks to fill in.
