    I put in an order at Bath and Bodyworks, with buy three items get two free and 20% off and a sale on shower gel, I got 11 items for $60, including some of the good thick scented lotion for winter skin and some cologne sprays for the younger teen girls.  I will put 2 or 3 in Easter baskets and have several left over for Christmas.  With 6 sisters, 6 dd's, and ds's gf, I have a lot of ladies to buy for.  These are a good substantial type gift to put in a stocking with candy!  Last year I gave ds's gf a dollar coffee to go mug with a sunflower body gel.  I bought oldest dd's favorite scent in shower gel for Easter and lotion for Christmas. I bought my 14 yo and my 12 yo light scents that they will like.

    So far there I don't have a lot save for Christmas or much bought. What I have bought so far: Daughter an small angel. Son I have dvd Hobbit series and another dvd that comes after the Hobbit series. Mother in law an Angel pin. Father in law I have a nice coffee cup. Also a friends daughter I have a shower jel and lotion bought(hers is done). It is a start. Need to finish my in laws, friends son, brother in law, my 2 brothers, My mother, and both kids. Looking forward to bath and body and Yankee candle sales next month to get some bought. Good chance that my daughters will be almost done.

    I took a look into the gift stash yesterday. I forgot that I scored 3 free gifts...brand new books left over from a fundraiser at school. That's about it for the Christmas gifts for 2014. Mall-wide sale at a nearby small shopping centre coming up this weekend...usually great deals, so I'm hoping to pick up a few more things for the gift stash. I've decided to increase the number of consumable gifts this year with things like concert tickets, high end foods etc. I've moved house recently and realized that my household had accumulated a sinfully excessive volume of STUFF! Nowhere to put it all, so I'll be donating and selling as much of the excess as I can. Now I'm determined not to give or receive more STUFF, if I can help it!

    I've ordered a few personalized key rings from a colleague who's making some for sale for Father's Day. Unique and not terribly expensive. Last year I started setting aside a little cash from my weekly pay from about August, which I then used to buy stocking stuffers or other gifts on sale. I'm going to start that process a little earlier this year.
