How many gifts do you buy?

Postby ANGWife » Mon Nov 02, 2009 5:09 pm

How many of your Christmas gifts do you actually buy on BF? Majority? Very few? Do you just shop for yourself?

It really depends on the sales. I buy gifts as I see sales for what I'm looking for -- if I buy something early and then it goes on sale on Black Friday I return it and buy it again on black friday...

I agree with LHaro, it depends on the sales. If they are great then I try to buy most of my gifts that day. I usually go with friends and hit a store and then when we hop in the car on the way to the next store, I'm on my laptop buying stuff online to get some of those sales and save a trip to that store. :lol: Though I do like shopping around Christmas time, I like the music in the stores and all the hustle of the people for some wierd reason and that's when I get the rest of the gifts I need to buy.

Zero. All 4 of the people I buy gifts for are with me on BF. We are not big on gifts, all of our BF shopping is for us!

I buy things for other people on bf very infrequently. We just built a new house and I have this gigantic empty basement and am hoping to find some cool game stuff to put down there. I love ping pong and, hopefully, I can find a good price on a table.

I try to do a majority of my holiday gift buying on BF. I usually get my son 90% done on BF, then pick up little odds and ends for him at the special sales in December. My nieces and nephews are always done on BF, as are my mom, dad, grandparents, in-laws, and siblings & their spouses. For those I can't get for on BF, I just wait till I see a good sale in December or do a little Cyber Monday shopping (like my hubby). We also buy for ourselves, because honestly, who can resist! :wink:

I get the majority of my big stuff on BF and then shop through out the season for the smaller items. BF is where I spend the big$$$ bc you can get so much more for less! :)

Do you base what you get people as gifts by what's on sale on BF?

Or do you try to find what you want on sale?

I thought Jesus was from the UK....lol. In almost every movie about Him or anyone from the bible...they speak with an English accent.

Depends on what's on sale. I buy many of my kids gifts that day, but also shop for myself. Depending on the budget, the kids wants always overrule my wants :wink:
