Do You Do Your Holiday Shopping Throughout the Year?

I usually do, but this year was insane for me so I didn't really get into that mindset. I try to be finished before my birthday (11/19) but that didn't happen this year. I'm done now, I just have to wrap...but I feel like I didn't get enough for everyone, so I may go find one more gift per person in the next few days.

If I shopped early I would probably forget where I stashed the gifts, or I'd wind up using them.. it.. for myself.

I'm like aimeeb. I wouldn't hold on to them for that long. I'd end up gifting them early anyway, so I'd have to buy something else last-minute like I tend to do anyway. I just bought my last gift last night. Now I need three iTunes cards and I'm all set. :)

Nope, I don't think I could hold on to things for that long.

I don't but my sister in laws do. They keep a large plastic bin where they keep all the christmas buys. I usually do my shopping at the last minute.

i do a little bit throughout the year sometimes i'll pick something up right after Xmas if it's cheap, while i'm still in the holiday mindset and often i'll get one or two things at an outlet if it's an awesome deal, earlier in the year

Never have before, but I definitely should...my mother starts picking up things for Christmas in the summer and it seems to work well for her. I started in October this year and finished in November, which is early for me.
