Christmas Shopping - Last minute or organised?

I've done most of mine but I still don't feel organised at all. I think it's because I have usually wrapped gifts for friends by now, even posted them off

What about you guys. Are you a last minute mad dash shopper or super organised for Christmas?

I'm mostly last minute... I always have good intentions of planning ahead and getting things sorted in plenty of time, but I've not even thought about it properly yet! lol

I've done it last minute before and it's just chaos! Trying to sort my daughters 8th birthday as well is a headache!

I'm never one for running round that last week before Christmas, I hate going anywhere near the shops when it gets close the Christmas, but I've left it until mid-December plenty of times lol

I've got about ¾ of mine, all piled up on the kitchen table waiting to be wrapped. That's the worst bit. Got most of it online so it hasn't been strenuous so far.

I am always last minute. Every year I say I won't leave it as long and every year I end up rushing in the final week before Christmas. We have got Holly her main present (a bike) and got the Christmas cards but apart from that, I'm behind again. And I really really need to be organised this year in case baby arrives early!!

I used to be organised.. but then D2 came 15th Nov and D3 the 17th Dec.. so now my run up is full of birthdays and a mix of 'birthday or xmas' shopping happens. Once both birthdays are out of the way I lay out whats left over from my purchases and work out what I need to get. lol D1 is 16 and has asked for a pair of Vegan Dr Martens - easy to buy for but expensive! lol

I hate it ... I keep saying I'm not buying friends any more but I do!

I do the most of it on line and of course take advantage of Argos' 3 for 2. I'm going to sit tonight and wrap a couple!

I haven't managed the wrapping yet, I really need to, it annoys me until it's done.
