I was in Boots yesterday and overheard a lady in the queue saying how she was buying everyones Christmas present at Boots this year using the 3 for 2 offer because she had around sixty people to buy for this Christmas.

Sixty people seems rather a lot so I was just wondering how many people you usually buy Christmas presents for? I probably buy for around twenty people each year which is bad enough!

thats an awful lot of people to buy for - sixty!!!!

My brothers/sister and I decided few years ago that we would stop buying presents for each other - and just buy for the kids - and thas suits all of us.

On top of that - my parents get a pressie and close friends/partner

I love buying presents - and have been picking things up for Christmas since August and got quite a lot in

I'm probably not far short of that - family and friends is about a dozen people, but then there's a lot of 'business acquaintances' and companies that I tend to buy for.

It always pays to keep the secretaries and PAs sweet:thumbsup:

I buy none, and get none by mutual agreement.

I put money in to children's building society accounts for their future, none of them actually need anything.

Christmas is just one huge commercial rip - off in my book.

It's not about what's inside the wrapping paper, it's more about the whole family sitting downstairs and doing something together. Which is something that seems to be disappearing between families nowadays.

I'm thirty but myself and all my brothers travel to my parents home on the Eve to have Christmas morning as a family. In the case of my older brother he lives on the opposite side of the country but always makes it, even if it means paying a Taxi driver to take him from Newcastle to London on Boxing day so he can make it in to work.

Granted it can be expensive but I love having all the family there.

Fair comment, however I don't need " Christmas " in order to do that, that happens often enough, however I do agree with your sentiments about families.:thumbsup:
