Do you shop Black Friday? No.

Cyber Monday? No.

Last-minute? No.

Or is all your shopping done already? No.

I usually hand make at least some of my gifts. This year, I'm knitting or sewing gifts for pretty much everyone except DH and the kids. I'll probably buy DH's gift sometime in the next few weeks and DH and I will go shopping for the kids sometime soon too. That's the most fun part for me, so I usually save it for last.

No black Friday down here, but even when I lived in the US, I avoided it.

I enjoy Christmas shopping and do most of it in the first couple of weeks of December, which is a slow time for me at work. I don't shop Black Friday and I don't even know what Cyber Monday is (although I do a fair amount of shopping online). Actually, I have been to Black Friday once, last year, to buy a wii for the kids. The store opened at 5 a.m., and I went around noon when it wasn't crowded at all.

I get stuff all year, then about the 1st of December I sit down & figure out what I still need, which are often charity gifts and whatever larger thing it is we are buying for the kids. This year the older one wants a humongous amplifier which I am having shipped directly to his college dorm. The younger one wants a game system that he's not getting, so I hope he has a second choice in mind.

I avoid Black Friday like the plague.

Cyber Monday? Eh, if I do, it's unintentional.

Not Last minute.

Not done yet.

I get stuff all year

I forgot about this option. Every December 26th, I decide this will be my tactic for the next year and then I forget on or about December 27th.
