    Did my second Sunday morning wrap session! Set a timer and just did what I could - got two presents wrapped and 5 or 6 stocking stuffers done too. Better than nothing!

    Lucie, the good thing is you now have time to find those one or two things.

    I find that mustards and sauces are a great filler. DH likes all sorts of sauces and chutneys. A great idea.

    I'm in a similar situation. If I can buy some gifts before Thanksgiving, then I will. Stocking stuffers are good things for me to work on now. I like to wrap as I buy when possible.

    Last year, my in-laws asked me for gift ideas and I offered to do the shopping b/c I knew I could get some great prices. They gave me a set price and I worked with in the budget. They loved that idea. It worked out so nicely for all of us. I'll offer to do that again. :)

    Today I will go to my mums and we will wrap the stocking fillers and pack the stockings (sacks for us). Gives us plenty of time to add more if needed.

    Did another Sunday morning wrapping session - worked for about an hour again and got quite a few stocking stuffers wrapped. It's not a ton of progress but it is all going to add up!

    We have all the stocking wrapped. We did 14 stockings so took a while. I have a list for a few extra things needed and will get those over the next few weeks.
    Glad to have that done.

    AJ, glad that the Sunday sessions are working for you.

    Did another Sunday morning session - DH had taken DS out for a while so I wrapped presents for the little buy without having to worry he would spot me! Got several large things wrapped and a handful of small things - then all hidden in large black trash bag and tucked away in storage area.
