So, where are you going to do it, and have you had any crazy experiences lately?

I've been mostly shopping online through Amazon.com and Macy's. I got the gifts I need for other people, and hooray, blew a straight $200 doing it! http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/Ultradyne/Pikachu%20Emotes/crazy.gif

I'm just glad I got it all done early. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/Ultradyne/Pikachu%20Emotes/cute.gif

Yeah, actually I have had a crazy moment this shopping season. I was at Wal-Mart and then my mom was looikng at some rings. I was resting my foot on the cart and all of a sudden my shoelace got caught. It seemed like forever before my mom got it out. Advice=

DO NOT rest you feet on the bottom of the cart

lol. Shopping carts are evil.

I haven't started shopping yet (like spending money) but I do plan on going to this store called Forbidden Planet and wasting a ton on manga. and by a ton I mean $100 cause I need to buy games for my Wii. Then Im going to Wal-mart to buy $10 bears and chrismas cards. Mwahaha cheap is good. :hungry:

I'm just a 13 year old teenager who doesn't get an allowance, yet breaks his back with a site, forum account, endless chores, homework, and much more without pay. Life's good.

So, all I have to do is tell my dad what my mom wants, or might want, and he'll buy it according to price. I don't know what else my mom would want. All the good ideas were taken last year, or the year before. Ping-pong table. Ray-Ban sunglasses. Diamond jewlery. What's she going to have this year? More bath products? XD

I have a feeling my mom's going to get me an iPod Nano, you know, the new Generation III iPod Nano? My brother wants a special Nintendo DS Lite (Zelda edition), and the iPod and the DS are both similar in price. Extremely similar, if I may say. The DS is $160. The 4GB iPod can range from $150-$170. Do the math. I'm getting an iPod. ^^

But we love to shop online. My mom relies on the internet most of the time, though she loves shopping at a regular store once in a while. My dad will just go to the store. He likes getting things faster. My mom just tries to be patient, though she isn't.

Hey, I bought one of those DS Lites on friday, but it only cost me $140.00. I really don't get to do too much as far as christmas goes either, but I did buy my bro a 2 gig micro sd flash memory card, you know, one of those little tiny things that are about the size of your fingernail? Yeah, I got him one, don't really know why he wants one though...

Christmas shopping is fairly easy for me, but... I never have the money to get it all done. :dazed:

I have what I'm buying for everyone all planned out, it's just setting it into action I have trouble with. :P

I got all my shopping done right around Halloween and the beginning of November; back when stuff was actually available. Sure it might've been a little more expensive, but worth it. I also shopped online a lot.

Girls? Depends on their age.
10-13: Some sort of makeup or something.
13 and over: There are many, many things you can get for these girls. Maybe a "Congratulations on the New Baby!" card to go with the other gift you gave her. :wink:

If you have a girlfriend that likes cute things (like mine for example) just do what I do best:
Sneak into her house and hide in a giant box all night with a sign that says "I love you".

It depends on what they are interested in. (Girls, BTW.)

I mean, if a guy got me some kind of lotion or shampoo, I'd be disturbed. XD If they bought me makeup/jewelry, I wouldn't wear it. But some girls like things like that.

I guess you could play it safe with chocolate. I know I'd like that, lol.

Let's see...


Father= Prolly something from Sears.
Mother= Something for the house.
Grandma= A candle or whatever.
Etc...
This year, my dad's side is doing a grab bag, so we only have to get the person we got gifts!
And for my Mom's side... I wish.

I picked out three places to do it. One's a place called Mustafa or something, and the others are in Sin City. =]

We'll probably end up giving dad the bi-annual heart attack when we finish our shopping. Last time we had to hire one more taxi, in addition to dad's SUV for the shopping. Of course, we spent it in the UK last year, but still...XD

Dad: He wants a CD
Sister: Probs chocolate
Friends: Something wacky. Last year I bought my friend a Santa-Patrick (Spongebob) beany baby. =P

Well, as of now, I've got everything. The last package of gifts came in through the mail, and all that's left is just wrapping stuff.

Man, all done before December no less. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/Ultradyne/Pikachu%20Emotes/smile.gif

I've done no shopping what-so-ever! :D

I usually just use my mom's/dad's money to but each other's gift(s). Hehehe, then there's my sister. She's hard to get a present for, so I just get her a blanket or something. xD Mom prolly will get a blanket too and my dad... a uhmm... something-or-other. :oops:

I usually don't get my freind anything since they're too lazy to get me anything. D: Although, boys dont usually give each other gifts. xD

Seeing as I have no money, I have to make all the Christmas presents. I haven't started yet, and I have so much to make...a couple of photoframes, a few "Secret boxes" (purely for laughs and giggles, the thouht is what counts...right?), a few Christmas cards, a few Christmas-themed pens...

Grr, I'm a pretty smart person, so I decided to save my birthday money until a cool game comes out for my own Christmas present. Well, wrong choice. Now, with that four hundred of mine, I have to buy the other teenagers of me family some presents. No more Assassin's Creed for me, eh? [Me mom is nice, though, so I'll get it anyways, maybe.]
