Holiday shopping

I know it's early, but I'm due 3 months from today. The kids are back to school and I'm thinking ahead to Christmas. I'd like to be all shopped and wrapped by the time early December comes because I'm sort of a homebody for the first few weeks after my kids are born- some days not getting out of pjs or sweats. :smileyhappy:

Has anyone else started shopping? Last year I did online shopping and tried to take advantage of free shipping when it was available. I'd like to do the same this year, because it saves time and gas for me. So, if any of you come across stores on line who are offering free shipping, let me know.

DH and I has also talked about this. I'm due early decemeber, but I'm sure the last thing I'm going to want to do is run around in the crowds shopping right after I had a baby. With these storms and earthquakes going on we might have a blizzard or something lol (hope not). So were going to do all the christmas shopping in november and the gift wrapping. We will put the tree up in november also. That will keep us busy for the month of novemeber, then the baby should come soon after that!

We're not really shopping this year. The only people we do much for are our parents and we' re basically just going to say to them, "Look, we got you a human! Merry Christmas!". lol

I prefer to shop online, too. The gifts will all be wrapped before I go to the hospital since I won't be getting home until 2 days before the big day.

GAP, Old Navey, Banana Repeublic, piperlime etc, all have free shipping over $50. A lot of place like Walmart, and Kohls, Kmart and many department stores have free shipping to store and you just pick it up. Amazon.com is great like PP said, sign up for Amazon mom and your get free shipping on almost everything for 3months, then every time you buy something they extend the free shipping terms.
