TWQ: First Christmas Presents

As it is now October, Christmas is looming up. TWQ (the Weekend Question) asks what are the first presents that you buy.

What are the first Christmas presents that you tend to buy and why? List as many as you wish.

 My answers are:

* The first ones are the calendars for myself. They have to be imported from the US, and can take a lot of time to arrive, plus there is a discount for early ordering.

* I have to but British calendars here for my friends abroad, so I like to get them early to allow for the heavy flow of post nearer Christmas.

* I review how many Chrisrtmas cards and seem how many new packets I need after looking at my list and adding and culling a few names!

Note: I know many did their shopping for this year long ago, and are probably looking towards Christmas 2011!
Now it's over to you...

Gosh I'm not that organised. I must admit if I'm doing a christmas sock knitting marathon then I'm probably getting things underway by now. But I'm not doing a sock marathon this year.

People might get hand thrown pots though if I can get the kiln to work right!

Wife and I decide what the family gift will be and then we watch for the best price.

We get the grand kids presents a little before the big day approaches. The kids are on their own.
