Actually I have just got some stocking fillers - free Lego with a 60p Daily Mail. I left the paper in the shop though ;)

My first Christmas gifts this year are two Mellissa and Doug toys. The clock and a tool box half price at £6.50 each from Clintons the card shop.

Blimey I have already got most of the kids things just need a good price on a disney toddler doll really. But I know I will end up buying even more once this thread gets going as the bargains were so amazing last year! The house of fraser sale has been amazing got lots of dolls, barbies and those solo skate boards for a £5!

Cath kidston Xmas mug for £4.71 at amazon. Ideal for a stocking filler or small gift for teacher etc:

I've not bought any Christmas presents yet but I buy household things when I see them and put them away grin
My DD has a June birthday and because she gets a 'big' main present, I buy her little things (one for every year) so 12 this year, in a nice box.

Earrings, nail varnish, bath smellies (especially in 3 for 2 offers)

Your threads saved.me a fortune last year reastie.

I can't believe it's May already, seems like yesterday we were all here comparing bargains!

misstiredbuthappy Mon 12-May-14 18:20:33

I love how you are all talking about Christmas this early smile im not alone grin

Reastie Mon 12-May-14 18:22:38

It's getting earlier every year, right?! Last year I think I started the threads in about July, give us a couple of years and it'll be December 26th wink

Marking place!! I am getting married in oct followed by 2weeks abroad. I am very worried! I did great last year thanks to your threads reastie.thanks
I hope we have no more arguments about 'place marking' or 'thanking Reastiethanks' and wasting space on the thread lol!!

Mama1980 Mon 12-May-14 18:31:38

ItsSoFluffyImGonnaDie Mon 12-May-14 18:37:56

Ooh, last year's thread helped me loads and as baby is due in August, thus Christmas may be a bit more frugal due to maternity pay, so glad I've found this! grin

Wineandchoccy Mon 12-May-14 18:38:29
