The Christmas Dilemma

.

.

Well here it is, mid-November already, and I’m completely at a loss on my Christmas gifting for this year.

Shopping

I’m not one of those last minute gift buyers and, in fact, by this time last year I had quite a big chunk of my kids already done. It would start sometime around August or September… as I hit the stores I cruise the toy section looking for sales or clearance items. Only, my kids are outgrowing toys so finding those great deals have become few and far in between.

This year I got them a handful of things already and now I’m completely tapped out of ideas. The PS4 is hitting the shelves which would be great if only there was a single title available that would be worth the purchase price. We are tossing around the idea of getting a puppy for the family as a whole… except the GF and I can’t agree on the breed and the things are freakin expensive as hell! Not to mention… how does one hide a puppy until Xmas morning??

Let’s just hope that inspiration hits me before it gets too late. One thing I hate is holiday crowds… you wont find me out on black Friday …I may wake up at 6am to snipe a deal here and there online… but I’d pay full retail before I cram shoulder to shoulder with the those crazy ass holiday shoppers.

How about you? When do you start planning your Xmas shopping?
