Now don't get me wrong, I like Christmas as much as the next person, but what I don't like is when people claim to have bought all their prezzies in March, wrapped them all up, decorated with a bows and ribbons and are now ready for Xmas. Where's the spirit in that!?
I like to make a few lists and get ideas around this time of year so when it comes to December, I have a vague idea of what I'm getting people and going out shopping for gifts doesn't feel quite so daunting.
I was tapping away on my laptop Monday night searching for pretty things
for me for my sister and I came across this:
It's by Ted Baker. My sister recently bought a TB bag the same colour with a gorgeous silver bow on, so I just know she'll love this. I don't like buying gifts too early as it ruins the fun of Christmas for me, and sometimes I forget I've bought things. But I've fallen at the first hurdle this year: ASOS had it on sale with free delivery so I snapped it up quick. It's now sold out in this colour so I'm patting myself on the back at my bargain find and it means I'll have a few pennies to buy her something else nearer the time.
Am I alone in my view of keeping Christmas shopping an activity to be enjoyed in December or are you an organised early planner?
