    My first purchase was for a friend at work....

    I normally just gift her a bottle of wine with scratch off tickets in a card.

    The idea came to me after the GF sent me out for some red wine she needs in a recipe.

    This is the earliest I’ve ever started my Christmas shopping.

    Cool gift! I started in July and almost done. I am in my 3rd week of Xmas decorating, starting on tree #3. It takes me months to decorate. Let the season begin:

    That is gorgeous and more beautiful than the Biltmore's garden room during Christmas.

    I was inspired by the Switzerland Zermatt chalet. My back porch will look like a ski chalet with a snow heavy christmas tree laced with ice crystal ornaments.

    Already done. Always finish before the nuttery of the "season".

    Black Friday sales are when I typically buy new electronics for myself. Bah humbug!
