I looked at the calendar this morning and I was surprised to see that it's just a week before Christmas. I am now in a Christmas panic mode because I haven't done my gift shopping and there's barely time to do it. I am relying on my online shopping since our little J has been sick lately due to his teething. Good thing I had hubs office gifts covered already, we can hand it to them during the office Christmas dinner.
I usually give the same gifts to friends so there won't be comparison, everybody gets the same thing as much as possible. Same thing with some relatives so even if they ask and compare (accidentally), no jealousy or whatsoever. Of course not exactly the same but different designs or styles of that same item. Doing this saves me too because buying wholesale products usually are priced lower than single retails. I usually check out wholesale suppliers and any wholesalers outlets and sites for good quality but nicely priced items. This way I get to give to many without doing so much damage to my budget. Economy's tough here right now so it's better to be practical.
Hopefully if I place my orders tonight everything will still come before Christmas so even baby can unwrap his first Christmas presents on time. I already hang his stocking (socks) for Santa, hopefully it will be stuffed with gift on time =)
