Christmas Shopping


Has anyone started their Christmas shopping yet? I don't even know where to begin. Every year I make a promise to myself that I will start shopping as of mid November and every year that promise goes down the toilet and I'm rushing around town the week of Christmas waiting in mile long lines for the cash register and arguing with people over parking spots.
Well not this year. I am determined to have my shopping and the wrapping of gifts completed for the week before Christmas. In order to do so, I will need your help. I need to buy for the following people:

  • 30 year old sister

  • both my parents

  • my 29 year old brother in law
These 4 have a budget of $50/ea. (Every year we go crazy spending loads of money on eachother that we reduced the budget and it needs to be respected.)

I then have 2 gift exchanges. I need 2 gifts not more than $30 that can be used by both a man and a woman.

So there you have it. All your help will be greatly appreciated. I have a few ideas but would love to hear your suggestions. Be creative!

P.S. I know that my post has nothing to do with my pictures but...WHO CARES, it's my blog :)

Good luck with the shopping, what about the Hubs and Duke? Any gifts for them ( I guess that goes without saying) Merry Christmas and Happy New year in advanced, five dollars what a steal, looking great.

I love those boots, I love that outfit (esp that shirt) and I love that it has nothing to do with the post!
hmm...I usually shop on the 23rd of Dec... and have 3 older brothers to work with so, yeah, not too much help here. I've always enjoyed buying concert tickets for people to see they're favorite bands etc.. or theatre, or cooking lessons, musical instruments, vintage typewriters, books (esp lovely coffee table books).... any help??

xx lots of love from San Francisco.
