Every year, Justin & I always have...good intentions.
We intend on doing our holiday shopping early, we intend on wrapping our presents well in advance, we INTEND on existing purely on twenty four hour marathons of holiday movies, hot cocoa, fuzzy blankets, and blissful rest the entire week leading up to Christmas.
And yet every year, we find ourselves doing the last minute shopper walk of shame through our local Pottery Barn or Target. You know the one. Bleary eyed and zombie-like, we desperately try to convince each other of things like, "No, no really.....your dad would LOVE these lavender scented bath salts. He needs to relax more!" or "How do you think your mom is doing on power tools? I bet she could really use a nail gun this festive holiday season."
It ain't pretty.
So this year, we have sworn that it's going to be different. That WE'RE going to be different. This year, we are getting all of our shopping done early, and what's more, I plan to do as much of it as I can online. No parking lot holiday road rage for this girl! And THEN when we're all done.....I totally plan on going to go to our local Pottery Barn and walking extra slow in front of all the last minute shoppers.
Nah....not really! That would be mean.
Plus, I'm pretty sure I'll be too busy watching Elf for the 456th time that week.
So tell me, when it comes to holiday shopping are you a weeks in advance or last minute shopper? And do you prefer to shop online or see it in person in the store? Leave us a comment with your answer below & we're going to pick one extra special lucky winner to win a seat to the What's Next Tour stop of their choice! And....GO!!
PS: Here's proof already that things are going to be different for us this year: we already got all our outside holiday decorations up!! Now to tackle the tree!
