The message is clear and uncomplicated - to organize way in advance and forget last minute shop-to-almost-passed-out status. Easy typed than done but even if I knew I wasn't going to accomplish anything just yet, simple browsing through gift sites and flipping through magazines was a good start. Every minute of it. If I can look for ideas before taking my purse out, most likely I'll have my gifts shipped, wrapped, even dusted in time! Most likely. The formula works wonders unless in a strange way I'll start to rely heavily on planning forgetting how fun it is to buy things out of a pure excitement while being pushed over at the till. One and only experience of a last minute shopper.
Anyway my all time best site for things that are crazy, quirky and not at all necessary is the one I introduced here. Presents for Men (as well as for the girls) with their multitude of choices and one year later I still find interesting things to have my eyes peeled on. Tell me you're in Christmas shopping mood already so we're in it together. x
