    Does anyone here do all of their shopping online for Christmas presents?

    This year, I meant to - but its ended up being 50/50. I never really make major purchases in store, it just doesn't occur to me unless I want something instantly. Its so much more convenient to order online :)

    Mainly internet shopping for me this year. In fact, every single present except Claire's was bought online!Even that I COULD have bought online if I'd really wanted to!

    I bought a few bits and bobs online as prezzies, like DVD's and CD's from a site I always use for them (www.play.com) . I bought other things from up town though, just to make sure theres no complications of getting them here before christmas ;) .

    Did my son's main pressie online but the rest was all footwork & all done in one day. Went down to the local Warehouse shopping center & spent the whole day spending :eek:
    Picked up some good Fun (& incedentally educational) pressies for my boy from santa, but for the most part the santa pressies are all high in number & low in cost. Since most will be lost or broken within a week I stopped putting much money into the santa sacks ages ago. The main pressies lightened my wallet a 'bit' more but I'm pleased with what I got :)
