You're about three and a half months too early for me. It doesn't take long to buy gift cards.

I would think that someone would have at least a dozen birthdays prior to that day.

IF by Christmas shopping you mean:

-Did I pay for my hubby and I to fly across the country to our nephew's wedding? Check
-Did I then pay for both us to fly to my class reunion out of state? Check
-Did I then pay college tuition for two kids? Check

Why yes, I believe I just may be done!

Ahh, the paddleball by grandmother used to get all of us for Christmas. For those who don't remember, it was a small wooden paddle with a long rubber band stapled to the paddle and a ball on the other end. It always went something like this:

BOK BOK BOK BOK SNAP... BOING!

Hey, watch it!

Sorry...

Family switched to a White Elephant exchange last year. Everyone bought one As Seen on TV gift and then did the regular 'pick one or steal someone else's' and it was hilarious. Repeating this year with each person able to spend up to $25 at the Dollar Store and the item(s) must fit in a large xmas gift bag. So much easier than trying to find the perfect gift for each person!

And fun too! We were literally rolling on the floor laughing.
If you google White Elephant gift exchange there are tons of ideas.
My nephew is really pushing for an ugly sweater one. :shudder:

I so want to do the white elephant with my family. I want to get the Bumper Dumper. That would be hilarious.

We are doing the holiday sock exchange at the office this year. Buy your secret santa person a pair of garishly ugly socks (holiday theme not required) and fill the socks with little treats etc .... Nothing to big but fun. At the end everyone will put on their socks and we will do a group photo

Amazon scores again. Had a last minute panic when a spices vendor determined that I was a racist for my voting choice, but I quickly found a new spice supplier. The wife is one heck of a cook, so she needs premo stuff.

Everything has arrived, is wrapped, and locked in the home office.

I would unwrap the wife and let her out of the office as she may have access to telephone and then racist may not be you biggest concern

What's the new spice company? My current one thinks I'm a racist for the way I voted too!
