At people's birthdays I always buy two things - one for the birthday, one for Christmas. That way, I don't have a mad rush when winter starts

I sometimes pick the odd thing up throughout the year but I'm terrible for actually keeping them til Christmas and usually end up saying 'ooooh I got you this' and just giving it to them

I kinda started during lockdown because I saw something my Nan would love for a great price but I started some more the other week. I normally start in October because Christmas shopping during german market is a pain.

Yes I'm the same normally about October time, I like to have it all done before the Christmas markets start so we can enjoy the run up to Christmas without worrying about what weve got in and still to get.

Least you're well prepared this year having started months ago

That is actually genius. Although I hope no one bought me jeans or trousers before lockdown expecting them to fit me now

Yeah im the same tbh. I prefer shopping when everything feels 'christmasy', not when it's baking hot outside

I've got all my christmas cards.

Signed sealed and ready to be delivered mid December.

I spend ages choosing these...got some with gorgeous pictures and heartwarming verses for close relatives and friends. And for acquaintances I buy charity packs where some of the profit goes to good causes. There are some really lovely ones available. X
