  1. I have already enacted my plan. I have asked all those whom I am buying a present for what they want. I will be purchasing all online if possible. I want this done as early as possible to make sure I get everything I need to get.

  2. I’m big on sending holiday cards to friends and relatives near and far (though we don’t really celebrate ourselves) — so I started last year & bought about 90 cards. Finished the shopping part last week when I bought stamps — yay, me! (Next step: addressing and writing all of ’em — #callmecrazy!)

  3. It’s hard to believe we’re counting down to the holidays already! I’m so excited that I’m trying to restrain myself from putting up the Christmas tree already!

  4. I’ve already started my holiday shopping…I’ve been picking up stuff here and there for a while now. This is my first time learning about Fresh products. My lips have been horrible this week, so those tinted lip treatments caught my eye!

  5. I love everything about the whole Fresh line. I buy the little tube of lip gloss for my peanut.
    It’s tradition that I buy all year long and wherever we live have a gift closet (only known to the adults) and have a wrapping party with all the girls in the family. We bake, drink, cook, drink some more and then eventually wrap…it’s just a good time before Christmas Day.

  6. I love Fresh. 🙂 But I strongly dislike shopping — for myself or others! Too bad there are a lot of boys in my family I have to pick up the slack for!

  7. Does being Scrooge and having no shopping plan count? I think I’m going to bake some Oreo brownies and call them coal and Tgats what people are getting!!! So I guess my shopping will be at the grocery store. But I wouldn’t mind pampering myself with a gift from fresh, my favorite skin care store! Addicted to the fresh ancienne eye cream!

  8. I plan to make a list of neat little hole-in-the-wall stores in my area… and take two days to thoughtfully shop. I often find that I’m so busy looking for something to fit what I think the perfect gift should be… when something much more meaningful might be right in front of my eyes. So this year I want to find gifts that matter–and gifts that don’t need to be the “star gift”.
