I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I can’t believe it’s almost only one week until Christmas! And that also means only one week until I start three weeks holiday! It’s hard to describe my level of excitement right now and I think it’ll only escalate as the week goes on.

As mentioned recently, I’ve really kicked things up a notch with my Christmas shopping and so happy to say, I’m almost done! A few more clicks of my mouse and a couple of PayPal purchases will see the end of the gift list!

How is your Christmas shopping going? If you need any inspiration, I’ve put together a gift guide for the Gorgeous Girls and Handsome Hunks – and today, I present to you some ideas for the Magnificent Moms and Dapper Dads

Every time it comes to buying my mom or dad a gift, they always say “oh I don’t need anything!” And I always say it’s not about needing something. I love gifts I don’t need – if someone bought me a vacuum cleaner, well, I wouldn’t exactly be thrilled. So if your parents can be a little tricky to buy for, hopefully these suggestions may help…

Who do you have left on your gift list? I did quite a lot of shopping online in the last few days… so fingers crossed it all arrives in time! Last year my mom had presents for us that didn’t turn up until mid-January! (That was great though, who doesn’t love a second Christmas?!) Has anyone had any nightmare post stories? Scare me with them now!
