Do you Christmas shop on Vacation?

Postby CandyKane » Sat Feb 21, 2015 9:50 am

Kiwi's Cruise post today has inspired a question. Do you Christmas shop on your vacations or trips? I always bring home souvenirs for loved ones and usually give them to them right away. We are planning at least 2 major trips this year and I think I'll take extra cash just in case I find something that would make a unique Christmas gift. :shop:

We are always looking for Christmas ideas for others when we go shopping around town or on trips out of town. Especially for the kids. As they've grown older (18, 20, 22), it has become more difficult to buy gifts for them. They have everything. We've spoiled them rotten. But they are good kids.

Yes. I am always looking for unique gifts wherever we travel. My favorite are hand crafted items not found in our area. Christmas is always in my heart & mind even on vacation..

yeah, i'm always looking through out the year.

usually i dont buy xmas gifts until late summer early fall, because i will usually end up caving and giving it to them early or for a birthday present.

but on occassion i get something that has to wait until christmas.

I've been doing the same thing to Michelle. What's really got her confused is she get's to open it Thanksgiving Day (If she's good). :P

It's a new Christmas movie DVD. The Miser Brothers.
