For my immediate family, I'm almost finished. I bit the bullet and ordered something for DH that he really wants, but was more than I wanted to spend. I figured, in the long run, it will be okay. He's so hard to buy for! I cut way back on what I usually spend on our children and grandchildren.

DH and I exchanged Mama's gift. They didn't have one of the pans in stock, so that money went back into the bank. I'll check later and get her that size if they have another great deal before Christmas. If not, I'll watch for it later and do it for Mother's Day, maybe.

Did the groceries yesterday. Body wash and deodorant spray in the brand that my boys like was well below half price....I bought a set each for Christmas of next year, it was too good a price to pass up. and so it begins again....

Received three Hanukkah blankets from QVC. The one with cats celebrating goes to a BFF and the one of the ones with stars goes to DSIL and DBIL and one goes to us.

Also ordered more sox for DS and a puzzle of the unicorn tapestry for me:)

I order gifts for the teachers, bus drivers, trash crew, recycling crew and postal carrier. I also ordered some clothes for dd and other gifts for the family. I have quite a bit more shopping to do. I'm trying to take advantage of the early Black Friday sales when I can.

Looks like a lot of us are nearing the end, well done.
DFSIL mentioned the other day that he does not have a salt and pepper set so will look for those for him. I have ordered him some gournet salts so that will make a nice gift. I think he is finished but need a few more things for DD.

Order some clothes for DS, some for now as he keeps growing out his clothes and the rest is being tucked away fro Christmas. Ordered a bunch of DVDs for DH and the kids this morning, just waiting for Target to tell me my order is ready for pick up. Slowly getting there!

I haven't gotten much yet but so far i've purchased:

A Fitbit Versa 2 for DD
Apple Airpods for DS (his bit the dust), a shampoo/body wash kit
Galaxy Buds for DH

I haven't gotten anything for Eli yet since he hasn't given me a list. I'm working on it though.

I placed a few more orders. I'm getting close to finishing shopping for one child. I've picked up items for the other dc but I still need to get more.

I still need a few things for DD. I have an item on order that should be here next week, I will get her a GC and a few bottles of cider that she likes.
I do believe that everyone else is finished.

I have *almost* finished.

Yesterday had a delivery of chocolate- personalised figurines, advent calenders etc but I'm now having to wait for another box to be delivered as the courier threw the box over our 7ft high garden fence where it landed in a drain! Nice!

Ordered neices, sil and my kids some Christmassy bathbombs, and that is it.

I AM NOT BUYING ANYTHING ELSE!

(please hold me accountable lol)

Bought my son some bourbon soaked hickory chips for his grill.
Received a reminder email from kohl’s to order gifts early, they predict mail service will be slow the closer we get to Christmas. It’s pretty slow here already.

DH and I went shopping yesterday. SInce we knew what we were after we were in and out of the stores pretty quick. We are almost done the kids now. Got to go trough everything and take inventory but I think we only need a couple more things gifts for them and then they are done.
Got FIL and BIL done yesterday too.
