I love giving gifts for people that I really care about, since there are too many of them, shopping for Xmas could be a real hell sometimes cuz i had to jump from one store to another store, waiting in lines and some of my family members are very "picky" with their gifts, I really dislike it..

I just found out that Safeway family stores carries gift cards for over 300 stores; from clothing, electronics, fragrance to books. It's really help me to save time. I could shopped for Xmas gifts in the store while I'm also shopping for my groceries. Since there are so many choices I just match the card to their personality and they could get what they really "wanted".. Voila.! works done..

I bought toys for kids; made some things for relatives; and for the hard to buy for I'm donating to a charity that I think they would approve of.

That's nice of you to have already found the gifts, I think I'm getting into some last minute stress as my situation is rather special this Christmas.

My folks will all be in Australia for the holidays so I'll have to think of sending them something unique that would heal their homesick, as they'll be staying there till mid February. I'm thinking of something sentimental like a nice gold platted family album or paintings with all of them together. I'll have to search more as I really want the gifts to be original.
