I do most of my shopping on line, but I like to go to craft fairs and local places like the hospital gift shop. I'm usually way ahead of Black Friday, though. If only I could stop when I have my main gifts. My kids don't need a lot of extra stuff, but it seems like something comes over me as the season wears on and I over-buy for stocking stuffers and little presents. For my extended family - they exchange gifts at Thanksgiving. I just mailed the last box this morning to get there on time. I made jewelry for all of the female family members.
