Yep, yesterday I wrapped the last of them.

Now all I have to do is concentrate on having a good time Smile Think I'll make some mulled wine, yummy!

Anybody else done or am I alone in the wilderness?

@Mame,
So whadya get me?

I ceased the insanity of Christmas shopping several back years, opting instead to give at random times during the year. See an item, think that it's ideal and buy and give. Yeah, I suppose that can be done (the buying) during the year and then saved until Christmas/Chanukah; but there's an extra glow when giving in let's say August.

My mother always began in January for December, and my sister buys all year and then has them ready in December/November (Chanukah arrives early at times). It also keeps a mind sane instead of suddenly descending into heavy debt.

Anyway, Congratulations on completing that task.

Does it count if I don't buy anything? My family stop this material merry-g0- round years ago. Children still get stuff from their parents, but the rest of us are off the hook. I do give homemade items like baked goods and soaps. We are all happier for it.

Seriously though, like others have said, presents are no big deal.

Maybe just a small token.

You know what someone gave me one year?

A tea bag.

That's right....one....farging....tea bag.

As a tag, she wrote my name on one of those 1" x 1.5" yellow post-it notes, and stuck it to the bag.

I kid you not.

Oh yeah, her shopping was done for the year.

I'm all done with mine, except for Chai.

I was gonna get her a tea bag, but have since reconsidered...

@dyslexia,
I used to have two aunts who sent each other ten dollar bills for Christmas. Times got worse, and they had to cut it to exchanging five dollar bills.

You're all welcome to hate me or dislike me intensely; bring it on, people.

I normally don't do Christmas presents but this year everybody seemed to want to, so okay, we set $$ limits and the rule is it has to be FUN and something you wouldn't buy for yourself. And it was fun shopping for things like that.
