30 Ideas For December: Shop 'Til You Drop


Ok, so I know what you're thinking right now. Idea number 4 isn't my best idea ever. Trust me, you'll thank me for it later. The best favor you can do yourself this weekend is to get ALL your shopping done. If that seems like too much, at least get the gifts done. Stocking stuffers are easier to buy in a crunch. If you're stumped for ideas, head on over to YHO, where this week (and next, I think) are gift guide week. I've used a few of their ideas already. Which brings me to my next point. I much prefer online shopping this time of year. Every other month of year I'm drawn to the stores like a moth to the flame. But I despise it during December. I'd much rather do my shopping from the comfort of my own home.

Nothing feels better than being able to (kind of) relax and enjoy the rest of the holiday season with the stress of shopping gone. So no matter which way you go, just get it done. Really, I guess the idea here is to relax after this weekend. Or stress out about all the other things you don't have done. Pick your poison.

I agree. I have purchased just about everything, but I enjoy the wrapping up with some Christmas tunes and cocoa, but I haven't got anything for my husband. I can't think of anything really wonderful.. I mean I can think of things.. like a trip to Paris, but you know that I can pay for. I'm totally stumped.

That picture is adorable!! You are an inspiration--you are always good at getting your shopping done early.

I am also 0% done. And I probably won't finish until after I'm done grading.
