Found a few more things yesterday when grocery shopping. Got DB some garlic powder, olive oil spray and chicken seasoning for his pack. Got the dogs the treats they like for in their stockings. Little by little I am getting there.

Snagged a few more gifts for the kids. Looks like the extended family chatted over easter dinner about doing a secret Santa for the adults. It was mentioned to us recently so we are all going to get together soon and discuss details as in price limit, age limit of the kids (a couple of the kids are now adults LOL and we will still buy for the younger kids) and then we will pull names at the end of the summer. That will be several less gifts we won't have to worry about getting now. DH and I talked about the money we will save and use that towards a Christmas outings for us and our kids.

Body wash and deodorant for son. Husband will try to pick up more body wash at a different store when he picks up his script. A good deal but they only had one bottle. Would like a few more to finish up with that.

Great that we are starting to get things ticked off the list. Feels like we are in a good place early on.

I have ordered DS 3 pocket squares from ebay. I am sure that he will love them, he is a bit of an old soul.

I bought a bottle of Tomato relish and a bottle of Summer berry syrup from Tasmania. I'll give the relish to Mum but I may keep the syrup. It sounds delicious.

Mother's Day ideas are in all the shop catalogues here. Got some Soda Stream syrups on sale, DS and DSIL will have some in their stockings depending on the use by dates. Got DD some pj's and slippers and got DS GF a lovely candle and a magnetic to do list for her stocking.
Got DS and DB a jigsaw that has all the James Bond movie posters on it. I know that they will enjoy that. Once all the orders arrive I will update my planner and gift closet.

Shopping yesterday and I scored a few things. I am doing Mum a treat bag full of all the things she likes. I will include nuts, chocolates, her favourite juice, some potato chips etc. I bought a bottle of wine yesterday.
I also bought some chocolate covered almonds that DH loves. The use by date was very good and I wanted to get them before the expected price rise on chocolate.

Hello! I picked up a lot of gift wrap last year. I had finally gone through all the older stuff. That's my start to my gift closet.

I have a small stash started for a new niece or nephew who will be coming soon. Babies are fun to shop for.

Isn't it great to have made a start. We think we have so much time and then bam Christmas is almost upon us.

Isn't this the truth! Fifth month of the year already.
@MissBrittany you've reminded me I've ran out of wrapping paper and gift tags (first time in 9 years - I bought in bulk way back then!). I'll have to start picking up the odd packs of tissue paper etc
