    All wonderful ideas. I start my Christmas shopping around October 1st every year. The first thing I buy for each person that month is one major gift – it might be a higher end cashmere sweater, necklace, etc. I give these a lot of prior thought and then shop for a great price. After that I spend November buying the smaller personal gifts and stocking stuffers over the weeks prior to Christmas. I tend to use a theme based on the giftee’s personal preferences. Using a theme seems to help me choose items. By the holiday all items are bought and paid for so I don’t need to have any carryover bills after the holiday. I started doing this 40 years ago when Christmas clubs were so popular at banks and it have worked great. I spend December decorating, wrapping gifts, baking and entertaining (prior to the pandemic of course).

    Hi Beth,
    What a lovely idea. This reminds me of the Christmas toy catalogues that kept me engaged as a child. Thank you for making Christmas shopping from my favorite chair so easy.

    Wonderful post, Beth. We can all use a little diversionary eye candy, fun, right now.

    Hopefully you are not affected by the wild weather going through Atlanta – stay safe. 🌷

    Hi Beth,
    I, too, have added some burgundy to my Fall and Winter round-up—such a nice change from black and navy!
    On another note, I know your intent is to to help with your Christmas Gift Guide, but this year Christmas will be painfully different for most of us—no holiday parties, large family gatherings, or a calendar full of seasonal events. My family is blessed with good jobs they can do from the comfort of their homes and they don’t need more Yeti tumblers, charging stations, or cheese knives. Instead, this year our family is adopting a family(ies) who have lost their job(s) and have no idea where the rent, utility bills, and grocery money is going to come from instead of the usual plethora of gifts none of which anyone remembers a month later. I would humbly suggest that you add helping a family in need to your Gift Guide—it could make a difference far more than one can imagine.

  13. I do a similar approach. I start in September buying gift cards of 10 and 20 dollars for the stocking stuffers. I do a theme each year as well, The big gift for each person is done with a scavenger hunt. They have to solve a word problem or a riddle to find the gift. Lots of fun and laughs.
