We are now in the Single Digit Countdown until Christmas! YIKES! Are you ready?
Do you have all of that holiday baking wrapped up? Still need to sprinkle some cookies or dip some pretzels?
Or do you need to start over because you actually did your holiday baking a few weeks ago and have been steadily snacking on them since? (Pointing the guilty finger at myself!)
Is your tree trimmed? Decorations up and twinkling? Travel plans made?
Ok, now here comes the tough one:
How’s that Christmas shopping coming along?
I’m sure some of you already have everything purchased and wrapped (I love you, you little over achievers)! Most of you probably have a good portion of your shopping finished with just a few gifts here or there to still pick up. And then there are my kindred sprits — the procrastinators!
Yes, I am the shopper who has to pay overnight shipping on my online orders because I’ve missed all other shipping deadlines. I’m also the shopper who will be fighting the crowds this weekend as I try to get the bulk of my shopping done! I would normally be proud of myself, shopping at least a week before Christmas, but the sad reality is that we have a Christmas part Saturday night and still need gifts! Que sera sera!
So, we’re dying to know — How are YOU doing with your Christmas shopping:
If you still have a few (or many) more gifts to put under the tree, don’t forget to checkout some of the amazing giveaway opportunities and gift guides we have right here at 5 Minutes for Mom:
