Gift Shopping List

Who is done with their Christmas shopping?

How did you ever manage to do it so early?

So far, at 17 days before Christmas, I’ve only crossed six people off my list. I purchased the gifts for these six friends online. I first saw the gift and felt that it was perfect for my friends. When they were delivered, they came all together in this beautiful box:

I will have to make them their own little bags for gifting. I’m excited for that too.

Last year the first set of people I got gifts for were my TLs. This year, I still have no idea what to get them. The boyfriend has hinted on wanting another G-shock, but I’m thinking of deviating from our practice and surprise him with something else instead. With what with exactly, I still don’t know.

It’s not like I can get him, my brother, or dad, a cigar humidor each. The boyfriend needs to stop smoking, my brother is now on e-cigarettes, and my Dad hasn’t smoked in a long time.

And what about Mom? Or our growing boy Amir? Hmmm. This is a very conservative list and already I don’t know how to complete my gifting! Hehe Smile

That’s really stressful noh? To complete the people in your list for gift giving, but same like u, I also get excited preparing gifts for Christmas. It’s a wonderful feeling. :)

So far I’ve only bought gifts for my girls. That’s 2 of probably 100 names on my list. Goodluck to us! :)

I really miss Pasko in the Philippines. We also have gift giving, Christmas parties and Simbang gabi here, but the season has a deeper meaning in Pinas.

Sabi nga diba, It’s more fun in the Philippines. :) But wherever you are, the Philippines goes with you!

Christmas in the Philippines is really fun. We have a family exchange gifts as well and we wear the same color of shirts.

I did a lot of Christmas shoppings when I was working/assigned at our company’s head office in Quezon City.

Actually, nabigla ako ng makita ko may mga regalo sa table ko. Doon ko na realize ganun pala sa Manila, ang mga tao nag bibigay ng mga regalo pag Pasko. Sa amin kasi nagbibigay lang ng regalo sa mga inaanak, family and close friends.(O dahil cguro may naging mga kaibigan na rin ako sa HO) Kaya ayun biglang Christmas shopping na rin ako for gifts. hehehe.

Masaya din pala mag Christmas shopping for officemates especially in Divisoria dahil sobrang daming tao. :)


verabear Reply:

Oo, minsan nakakapressure din tuloy magregalo. hehe. :) Haven’t been to Divisoria medyo over a year na rin siguro. Ang sikip kasi!

Halfway done pa lang. :) I get headaches while shopping. Probably from computing purchases to make sure I stay within budget. :P

Good for you! I haven’t been to a single bazaar this season, except for the 10a Alabama Craft Fair last month I guess.

I haven’t completed my list yet, actually, I don’t have an actual list. My hubby isn’t helping me with ideas. I think I have gifts to 6 people only. I also like to buy online, but I haven’t found perfect gifts for my friends yet. I want to make them scarves but I haven’t gotten the cloths yet. *sigh*

Well we haven’t done any shopping of gifts but something new clothes for the kids were done already. Maybe we will have to sort things in the house for the gifts.

Life these days have become very practical because of all the online shopping sites available. I hope your friends will like your gift!

Love the giftbox, that is a gift all in itself!
I finished my kids and hubby. This time, I got what they wanted a little.

As for your comment on my post, I used to sell accessories I got from multiply on to ebay and made a little profit that way.

I delved also in selling ebooks but out of respect for copyright law which I wasn’t aware of then, but learned later I stopped. I bought for my personal consumption.

I dream of owning that bookshop/magazine stand/study lounge/ tutorial center.

But so far, singaporean perfume seems to be a good bet to sell this Christmas since most sellers that I’ve seen have been out of stock for items I want. Baby products are also a hit.


verabear Reply:

Yup, which reminds me that I should thank the seller for the nice packaging :)

Good luck in whatever you venture into. I think tama ka about the perfume, mukhang walang lugi dun :)

I’m afraid we will have to pass gift-giving and travels this year. My expenses with my college is my priority, anyway when I graduate and get a good paying job, we can have all the gifts we can have and it doesn’t have to be birthdays and christmases :)
