Christmas Shopping

Have you entered my giveaway yet?  I'm giving away a handmade
Christmas garland.  Just click here and enter to win!

I love Christmas shopping.  (I feel like I start a lot of blog posts withe words I love...  Too much?)

Maybe its part of the fact that I love surprises.  Maybe I just love gifting.  Or the Christmas wrap.  Or possibly I just love to shop!  I don't know what it is exactly.

However, something about Christmas shopping just makes my heart smile.  You too?

I love coming up with that one thing that "speaks to me" when I am shopping for someone in particular.  Do you experience that?  Do the gifts you buy "speak" to you?  Or am I crazy?

Maybe, don't answer that.

I just get this feeling when I have someone or some thing in mind for a gift idea and all of a sudden I find that perfect gift.  Almost like that one thing was put in that store just for me to see for that one special person on my list.

It doesn't hurt that Christmas shopping is accompanied by Christmas music, Starbucks red cups, and twinkling lights.  How can you not love that atmosphere?

Do you love Christmas shopping?

  1. I do not love Christmas shopping.

    I want to love it, sure.

    But I feel like sometimes it's a big competition, one that crowds the stores and makes people rude. Then the Christmas music creates an angering dissonance as shoppers rudely push past me without so much as an "Excuse me."

    Online shopping is great, but then I don't plan ahead far enough and I feel like I'm spending too much money.

    My Anxiety Disorder (Sorry!) (Not sorry?) (Not sure if sorry???)

    Otherwise, I love shopping. Maybe not at malls though. Maybe at tiny boutiques away from crowded parking lots and the gum snappers of the universe.

  2. I love the atmosphere too! Really keeps you in the spirit and not too stressed about finding the perfect gift! Cute outfit, looks so warm and comfortable!

  3. I love Christmas shopping online. Not in person.

  4. love your cute outfit!! I like shopping, really anything to do with it I am down. I just don't like the stress that surrounds Christmas shopping.

  5. I love Christmas shopping too! I know the feeling you're talking about when you get the perfect gift for someone! Then I can't wait to give it to them!


Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
