The problem with throwing a Christmas party on December 9th is that you spend the three weeks before getting ready for the party, instead of shopping, and then the week after cleaning up...instead of shopping.
I have been so far behind on my Christmas shopping this year! If it weren't for the internet, I don't think any of my out-of-state friends and family would be getting anything before the new year. And it's still doubtful they will get anything before Christmas Day.
But lo the wonders of the internet. I have frequented several sites this year that have saved the day. Among them are, UncommonGoods.com
which has some really unque presents--didn't the name tell you that??, BarnesandNoble.com
(where I get great discounts because I have a membership card, which I have been repaid the $25 fee three or four times this year), Gifts.com
which has sent me to some very cool sites, and given me some great present ideas, and Snapfish.com
where I spent so much money this year, that they gave me a free gift...a nice one, too! And the Sur La Table
website which is just so much cooler than William-Sonoma.
At any rate, I found some pretty cool gifts this year that I would never have found in stores, and I am thrilled! If you're still looking, you're creeping up on the deadline to get it before Christmas, but you still have a little bit of time. So get out there, and look at some 000s and 111s!
