I assume that the peeps with their heads on straight have already done their shopping! Help those who are less fortunate out! Share what you bought, for who, where and why!?!

Tried to go shopping for presents in a shopping mal nearby (5 minutes away) on saturday...

It took me one hour to find out: All of 9 Parking lots where full. All Bus-Parkings where full of busses, everyone was a visitor from the netherlands, inside it was like tokyo subway. Took me 5 minutes to walk 10m. So I went home.

Did the shopping this morning before lateshift. Bought the usual. Parfume musical tickets jewelery....

What's "F.A"?

I love buying things for people! Or giving things. It's so awesomely exciting and fun finding someone something. But I'm super broke this year so I only splurged on the boy and my brother, and made do with little things for everyone else.

Brother- Wii :P
Boy - Ricer Part :P:P:P;)
Small cousins (girls) - Little 'trinket' bags with watercolour kits, little paper pads, perfume minatures, lippy, jewellery, clips, make-up kits thingies, candles, bubbles, homemade purses, pillboxes, etc.
Small cousins (boys) - vouchers :(
Girlfriends - More exxy version of the small 'trinket' bags mentioned + voucher or, home-made cds+booklets and homemade notebooks.
"Mates" ;) - Rare (import) LE cd, Books, Teeshirt/s, mix cds (homemade) and notebooks (homemade). Lol.

I was also making cards, but I've only made 3 of the 20 I need so I don't know what I'm going to do with thattt... :( I'm also planning on making little cupcakes or Xmas cookies & give them to random small children on Xmas day family gatherings.

Don't you hate it when you buy someone a gift......you think you've finally finished your Xmas shopping, get home, unload the car..........then you look at one of the gifts and decide to keep it for yourself! :lol:

.........then you have to go back to the Shopping Centre yet AGAIN!

goto ebay, and type any random word that pops into your head. Look through waht you find, and get ideas from there. 2nd hand stuff isn't good as presents but ebay can give you an idea of what to buy

tiffanys jewelry ftw.
