I changed countries this year and it was easy to get all my presents in record time in "last years" country because it was in one great big fat shop.
This year I have less friends because I changed countries but I will have to visit 2 or 3 shops because the shops are smaller here.
I bought all my presents in 35 minutes last year...
What's the quickest you did it?
I don't typically by things for people. I usually try and make gifts which always takes awhile!
My wife does that always; honestly dont know how long it takes but 35 minutes if you know what to buy
is enough to buy them all
CC I did not think about making things but if I did it would take too much time.
Time is money.
You must love someone very much.
In my case I would only have time to make some paper darts and they would not look very good under the Christmas tree even if I went to the expense of making them with wrapping paper:(
i just send money for my love ones so that they will purchase what they liked for this Christmas.
There is a very easy way.
Maybe You have a family with 50 members
and 10 friends
and You want to make them happy with a present during one day:
Do it Yourself.
Buy 180 kinds of tea
from green to red tea and so on.
Then buy small plastic bags.
Build out ot the bags filled with one kind of tea animals.
And You can be sure
this is not a boring present and every present is different.
Usually we do not take much time in buying the presents for ourselves. But for my parents and my child, it takes sometime. Usually if we plan earlier, then it takes approximately 30-40 minutes to buy them as everything is available under one roof , now a days--thanks to the Shopping Malls.
