I finished my shopping Saturday except for some stocking stuffers for my mom and dad and DH, since DH and I will be spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my parents' home. My parents still hang stockings for each other and for any daughters, sons-in-laws and grandchildren who are visiting them.
DH and I actually bought most of our gifts in one afternoon on Dec. 2. - the only ones we didn't get that day were gifts for each other, our teenage nephew and our adult niece and her new husband. We had purchased those gifts by Dec. 10.
On Saturday, DH wrapped the gifts that we are giving to the senior citizen that we adopted for Christmas through our church, and wrapped and mailed the gifts to his brother and his brother's wife and child. DH is on vacation this week, so yesterday he wrapped and mailed the gifts to his parents, and wrapped all of the gifts for my family members, whom we'll all see the week of Christmas. It feels good to have everything done - and I am so lucky that I have a spouse who is a much better gift wrapper than I am and who wraps everything without me even asking him. I still need to wrap his gifts, however.
As for what I bought for myself while Christmas shopping:
1. A pair of winter white wool pants at Ann Taylor Loft. I needed one or two pairs of wool pants for work, and I am planning to wear these pants with a fancy top on New Year's Eve.
2. Undies and bras, which I really needed and which were on sale at Victoria's Secret. I got a free lotion and body wash for buying them, and I'll give the lotion and body wash to my mom as a stocking stuffer.
