Christmas Shopping ( Getting Harder Every Year )

Me and my girlfriend travelled to a city today to do some Christmas shopping, We got some things but not enough, Is It just me or Is Christmas shopping becoming harder every year?
We just cant find lots of goodies for everyone these days. Sad

No, its not you. Everyone seems to be a fan of commercial mass produced trash from department stores. When thats all that anyone seems to buy, how do you decide to what buy for them?
It's easier now to make a wishlist and let people have copies. That way you get some of the stuff you want, you're still surprised to get it and you won't feel disappointed.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Usually lots of things would just jump out at us, And " Oh she will love that " Or  " Oh we must get him this he has been after that for ages " Not any-more though, Seems we may have to go even further afield next year?
I'm fed up trawling the streets and stores to come home with just a handful of stuff.

Re: Christmas Shopping ( Getting Harder Every Year )

At least you enjoyed your day out ?
what you or others love may not be out  on the high street today
but there is something out there for everyone
I know it as
today I ve been looking at a full length suede fur lined overcoat and found it
it was a thoroughly enjoyable and happy experience
and over Christmas if its really cold
its absolutely  ideal with  a ladies arm around the back of it
you still have 14 days left to find what you want

Re: Christmas Shopping ( Getting Harder Every Year )

It's why I do it all online, have an Amazon Wishlist (to which you can now also add items from any other website) for myself, and give some people gifts through http://www.oxfamunwrapped.com or http://www.presentaid.org to give the joy of gift-giving without a physical thing that may disappoint and also help combat poverty.
