Holiday ShoppingWednesday, November 25, 2009 Mary Anne Velasco
Just a few days more and it's already December which my boyfriend and I consider as the most stressful month of the year. We have done some very advanced Christmas shopping during our July visit to the Philippines. However, after going through our list of family and friends last week, we have realized that we need to do a lot more shopping than expected.
After encountering difficulties (well, just small ones) about which items to buy for everyone on our list, it is a delight to come across a page filled with ideas about christmas gifts and some tips on how to save money. It is of course nonsense to pay for items to gift to people when you know you'll end up having an empty wallet. So as of the moment, we are slowly filling up our list while making sure that we are not going over our budget.We are thinking of buying a Hello Kitty MP3 Player, a Mickey Mouse Style MP3 Player and a cute pair of Bear Cartoon Speakers for cellphones for the three girls on our list (my boyfriend's nieces), a 3-pc comforter set for mom, a bluetooth portable handsfree car kit for dad and for my boyfriend --- secret! I want to surprise my boyfriend so I decide to keep my mouth zipped about his gift.
Anyway, enjoy your shopping and hunting for christmas gifts this season!
