    All year long I keep my eye open for things that strike me as great for loved ones!

    I start early every year and have my presents al wrapped- so I can then relax!!

  14. Rosibal • December 15, 2014 @ 9:59 AM

    I start in the fall

  15. Belinda • December 15, 2014 @ 10:00 AM

    Usually I get everything done really early. Usually by October….. but this year I’ve been procrastinating. I prefer getting things done early though so the holidays are stress free!

  16. Mireille Fournier • December 15, 2014 @ 10:12 AM

    I usually do it last minute, even though every year I tell myself that I will start early.

  17. Gloria W • December 15, 2014 @ 10:17 AM

    I usually do it last minute, this year I started a month early.

  21. JT • December 15, 2014 @ 10:22 AM

    Just started doing my Christmas shopping online this year. Started in November. Its the best thing ever. I found great deals on items for people on my Christmas list. And it comes right to your door. No busy malls or department stores. Trying to get my wife on board, not easy. Maybe nexted year.

  22. James Winson • December 15, 2014 @ 10:22 AM

    I am a procrastinator. Always the week before Christmas.

    Mostly in the last two weeks

  24. Allan • December 15, 2014 @ 10:24 AM

  25. Susan Hanley • December 15, 2014 @ 10:24 AM

    I do my Christmas shopping early, can’t tolerate the craziness at the malls and in the stores in December.

  26. aketch • December 15, 2014 @ 10:25 AM

    I try to start early, probably in September, but I find I always need to purchase some small last minute gifts and stocking stuffers. This prize would make great stocking stuffers divided between my husband and two sons. Thank you for the chance!

  27. hyunjin k • December 15, 2014 @ 10:28 AM

    through December.

  28. Janet P • December 15, 2014 @ 10:29 AM

    I am more of a savvy shopper. I know, early, what I want to get for everyone, and I watch to see if it goes on sale before Christmas. Then a week before I get it if it did not.

  29. TJR • December 15, 2014 @ 10:30 AM

    Very early as I hate crowds. It’s like a band-aid, you rip it quick get it over with.

  30. Kira K • December 15, 2014 @ 10:32 AM

    I Christmas shop all year round!

  31. Elizabeth Matthiesen • December 15, 2014 @ 10:34 AM

    I’m on the lookout all year round but only start serious shopping a couple of months before. There’s always the odd present for someone that I can’t find or don’t know what to get, those are the last minute hair raisers!

  32. Terri Shugarue • December 15, 2014 @ 10:36 AM

  37. Kristin • December 15, 2014 @ 10:38 AM

    I always start around October and slowly pick up everything I need until I’m done. My boyfriend however is a last minute shopper and it drives me nuts.

  38. tammy harrison • December 15, 2014 @ 10:39 AM

    I start at the after Christmas sales and get a few things. I really get in the groove in the summer months

  39. Candace P • December 15, 2014 @ 10:40 AM

  40. Jeff • December 15, 2014 @ 10:40 AM

  72. Thelma B. • December 15, 2014 @ 11:06 AM

    This year it has been last minute because my water heater quit, my fridge died and my washing machine quit all in a 2 week period, so I have spent the first part of December waiting for repair men and deliveries. Happy appliance Christmas 🙂

  73. Catherine Maguire • December 15, 2014 @ 11:07 AM

  74. Anastasia • December 15, 2014 @ 11:07 AM

  75. Lauretta M • December 15, 2014 @ 11:08 AM

  76. Donna • December 15, 2014 @ 11:09 AM

  77. Barb Lawrence • December 15, 2014 @ 11:12 AM

    I look for bargains throughout the year!

  78. Jill Howes • December 15, 2014 @ 11:14 AM

    I try all year, If I see something or hear of something that people like then I pick it up for them, this year is a different story, need to get out

  79. GranKB • December 15, 2014 @ 11:15 AM

    I normally pick up things during the year, and then consistently forget where I “hid” them. This year, I started several months ago when I found the perfect gift for my son-in-law and knew that if I didn’t buy it then, I wouldn’t be able to find it at Christmas. I boxed up a package for each of my daughters and mailed them, only to find more things I had meant to send. Also my homemade gifts remain in an unfinished state and my “Christmas” gifts will probably wind up being given on birthdays. This year was disrupted by an extended illness and very recent death in the family so it will be a sad quiet celebration. We’re hoping for a better new year.

  80. Steve • December 15, 2014 @ 11:16 AM

    Usually shop the last week leading up to Christmas.

  81. Val • December 15, 2014 @ 11:16 AM

  85. Estella Bai • December 15, 2014 @ 11:21 AM

  86. Brad Cook • December 15, 2014 @ 11:25 AM

    Started shopping in March so I can piece it together over the year and make sure each person gets something special.

    I try to do my shopping over the last 3 weeks before Christmas to ensure I get something that don’t already have (If I buy early – they ALWAYS go and get it themselves) …

    Merry Christmas

  92. Kerry • December 15, 2014 @ 11:47 AM

    I shop all year- when I see things I like- i buy it and keep it. Eases the shopping stress at xmas time with so many things to do.

  93. Bernadette • December 15, 2014 @ 11:47 AM

  96. Colleen • December 15, 2014 @ 11:54 AM

    I start in early November and I am done by early December – this year I wrapped early too. Decorating is done, shopping done, wrapped and under the tree. All I have left is cleaning and baking. Yes!

  97. Darci Paice • December 15, 2014 @ 12:00 PM

  106. Dawna • December 15, 2014 @ 12:07 PM

    WAY before the Christmas season! Years of working in retail have made me despise holiday shopping! Plus I get better deals through the year this way!

  107. Amy M • December 15, 2014 @ 12:09 PM

    I try to get mine done early.

  108. Gavin Bamber • December 15, 2014 @ 12:15 PM

    All year-round!

  109. Blythe Comer • December 15, 2014 @ 12:16 PM

    I usually start my Christmas shopping right after Thanksgiving, however, it feels sometimes like I’m shopping right up until Christmas Eve. My husband is difficult to buy for and the children keep changing their minds, as the weekly flyer arrive at the house, but I have to say, all in all, I love that’s it’s Christmas, it’s one of my favorite times of the year.

  110. Sue Maher • December 15, 2014 @ 12:17 PM

    I try and have it done by Dec. make things easier

  111. Jennifer P. • December 15, 2014 @ 12:18 PM

    I try to get most of it done early, and I am pretty successful, but there are always those few people that are hard to shop for that I seem to scramble for at the last minute.

  112. Constantine • December 15, 2014 @ 12:20 PM

    My husband would love this and he is a last minute shopper!

  116. Lindsey • December 15, 2014 @ 12:28 PM

    I try to start the beginning of December

  117. Denise E • December 15, 2014 @ 12:29 PM

    By things throughout the year but finish early December 🙂

  118. Jess • December 15, 2014 @ 12:34 PM

    I don’t really have a start time as I keep my eyes open throughout the year but I would have to say the majority gets done in November. I rarely shop in December.

  119. rose langill • December 15, 2014 @ 12:36 PM

  124. benoit • December 15, 2014 @ 12:51 PM

    I do it during the first week of December.Doesn’t feel like Christmas shopping before then and I hate the last minute because I can’t always find what I’m looking for.

  125. Amy Cheverie • December 15, 2014 @ 12:52 PM

    this year I did it all super early, except for that one hard person to shop for!

  126. jm • December 15, 2014 @ 12:52 PM

    We start making lists in October & start shopping in November.

  127. Farhana Rawji • December 15, 2014 @ 12:54 PM

    I do my christmas shopping early that way its done and you don’t have to worry about doing it last minute.

  128. Farhana Rawji • December 15, 2014 @ 12:56 PM

    I do my Christmas shopping early that way it’s done and over with before the holiday craze.

  129. Gabriella Schmidt • December 15, 2014 @ 12:56 PM

  130. Gabriella Schmidt • December 15, 2014 @ 12:57 PM

    I start thinking about my gift list in November and start picking up things a little at a time.

  131. Chrissy • December 15, 2014 @ 1:00 PM

    A little bit of both, mostly whats left are the people that are difficult to buy for.

  132. Savanah Ashton • December 15, 2014 @ 1:02 PM

    I do a bit early and then usually end up scrambling the few days before for the rest!!

  133. Shel • December 15, 2014 @ 1:03 PM

  134. jan • December 15, 2014 @ 1:06 PM

    early, but then I find out a few days before that I’ve missed something

  135. Cindy • December 15, 2014 @ 1:10 PM

    Always hope to get it done before December but never manage to. Though I am always thinking about what to get as gifts all year round.

  136. SueSueper • December 15, 2014 @ 1:11 PM

    I go with the flow when shopping start paying attention to sales in October, and whatever doesn’t happen by last minute, then it will be last minute.

  137. Tom • December 15, 2014 @ 1:11 PM

    Start early and finish late! 🙂

  138. Clarita Waillou • December 15, 2014 @ 1:15 PM

    I am early (I start buying in October) I am only “last minute” if some of the kids on my list change their mind (and so they do have both presents) ^_^

    I start my shopping in January! When I see something on sale for someone I get it! But I still get most in November and December and for my husband and dad and step dad last minute because I never know what to get! So this would be perfect to win! 🎅

    I get some out of the way early in the year, but I’m mostly last minute.

  146. Jeromme Graham • December 15, 2014 @ 1:30 PM

    I usually try to get it done by early December, to avoid the craziness at the malls and to ensure items that need to be shipped arrive in time for Christmas!

  147. Todd P • December 15, 2014 @ 1:30 PM

    I start pretty close to Christmas as I feel the pressure inspires me to better gift selections!

  148. Roberta Bourgeois • December 15, 2014 @ 1:34 PM

    I try to do a little all year and put things away. Thing is you buy more that way because you forget what you had bought in April. Lol.

  170. Rick Stewart • December 15, 2014 @ 3:08 PM

    Christmas shopping is all year long – I look for items that speak to me of the person I am shopping for and I put it away in a Christmas bin and then I have it – no last minute dashes to the mall when everyone else is doing the same thing…

  171. Shelley Nelson • December 15, 2014 @ 3:09 PM

    normally I try to do it early in October and November during sales then since I can’t stand dealing with the crowds in Dec

  254. Eric R • December 15, 2014 @ 8:43 PM

    I mostly make stuff for gifts so most of the time they are done early but every once in a while it is a hand made card stating the gift will be a little late.

  291. Tanya Terry • December 15, 2014 @ 11:04 PM

  299. Rhonda D • December 15, 2014 @ 11:39 PM

    I usually start early but then as I see people needing what I bought I give it to them early, ie gloves, razors this year. But my generosity was just stemmed by losing a job so hope they enjoy the gifts already given!

  300. Debbie S. • December 15, 2014 @ 11:55 PM

  306. Judith Banville • December 16, 2014 @ 3:41 AM

    I start during the Black Friday sales as long as I know what people want by then.

  307. Edward Banville • December 16, 2014 @ 3:43 AM

    I leave it all to my wife but the last week before Christmas I usually hit the stores to find her a gift.

  308. Betty S • December 16, 2014 @ 4:46 AM
