    So my christmas shopping is well and truly underway.

    Todays I was in TK Maxx and saw the most amazing dress up dresses for the 4 year old who only wants more dress up dresses.
    So I bought both of them..1 child down 2 more to go.
    I love being Santa:)

    I bought my nephew a Talking Tom. I think it's based on an app.

    More importantly though, I ordered my advent calender. :)

    Today for two lickle dogs, I've brought their Christmas pressies up to:
    ~ A Santa hat with wrap for around their heads (here)
    ~ Christmas collar that jingles when they move (here)

    ~ A Christmas fleecey thrown with a Reindeer on, for both dogs (found here)

    Think that'll do the two lickle dogs for Christmas for now. Will buy the food and treats closer the time to have them fresher for them :)

    Thanks,
    kerry4sam

    I'll guarantee you will have the best time! It was awesome last year, really brought out the Christmas spirit, can't wait for it this year :D

    A beautiful compartmentalised box in Dunnes to store ornaments. I love it! Same pattern as these but larger, and it was €20. Has two levels.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,829 ✭✭✭✭ endacl


    I bought 20 fags. But forgot to get a lighter. When I went back in, the guy behind the counter gave me one for free, saying 'ah sure it's only fifty cent'. It was a spar shop, so he was wearing red, and he was slightly overweight. Not a chimney in sight, but you never know these days...


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    We had some vouchers to use up so we bought some decorations today.

    Can I have your cat? He/she (?) is gorgeous. Look at those eyes and all the cuddly, warm fur!

    Back on topic, I didn't get anything today, too early for shopping yet, but am planning on getting presents for my boyfriend this week. Hopefully will have all my presents bought by the start of Dec!

    I dressed my cat up as Santa Claws the year before last. He was thrilled.*




    *may not have been thrilled

    Got my first box of Mince Pies of the season! I usually just go with Dunnes'/Tesco's finiest but given that it's the first box, I got the Mr.Kippling ones. Gonna have the first one for an evening snack later on :)

    Niiiiiiiice. Yeah it's two for three for the Dunnes' ones atm too. From what I remember that offer stood for pretty much all the season last year.

    Santa Sack for my little boy. It's not that cheap but he's only two so he should get lots of Christmasses out of it.

    Anyone got any good places or websites to get cute dog stuff? Like hats, jumpers, blankets and stuff to keep them warm?
    Sorry if that is slightly off topic.
