Informal Poll – Christmas Shopping

While it seems to be rather traditional that men wait until the last moment to do their Christmas shopping, I thought I’d post a little informal poll here, being that it’s the first of December.

What point are you at in your Christmas shopping? And are you male or female? Finally, please feel free to offer your thoughts on whether this actually is true or not in your experience.

    I don’t shop for Christmas. I ask people not to get me any presents and I don’t buy any either. Makes the season much more enjoyable for me, and is one less present to buy for others.

    I’ve got some stuff bought, because I kind of accumulate small gifts during the year for friends. But I haven’t gone out and done any actual shopping.

    As for my list, I usually ask for donations to any charity in my name. Some people have a problem with it, but I find it as touching as a physical gift.

    I haven’t done any shopping yet, but I do know what I want to get for everyone on my list, which is usually the hardest part.

    As far as men waiting until the last moment to do Christmas shopping, in my experince it’s totally true. I’m a guy, and I usually cut things close, but not crazy close.

    I totally remember going to the mall on Chirstmas Eve with my Dad to get presents for my Mom.

    I’ve barely started – I’ve bought one set of gifts for my sister & her husband, and that’s it. I do, however, already know what I’m getting most of the other people on my list.
