I love doing something that is kind of unique and i'm always looking for new sites to check out.

The majority of mine has been from amazon, living social, groupon, White House Black Market, and a whole lot from Etsy this year. I've ordered a few things from Wolfermans, Harry & David and Sharis Berrys.

Definitely looking for something new for my mom, my sister, my dad and my manfriend. Possibly my boys (14,14,12), my niece (10) and nephews (7 and 5) so i'm pretty much looking for something for everyone and i'm pretty sure i'm not the only one.

what fabulousness is on your shopping list this year?

I've done 99.9% of my shopping this year at Amazon. The rest I will be buying gift cards at Kroger (for different places) so I can get the rewards points to save money on gas.

Trolls *heart* me!!

99% of mine is coming from Amazon. I have about 90% already in-house and ready to be wrapped. I have maybe a handful of things to get yet, more from Amazon and probably a few things from Target (lounge wear for my son). I may make one trip to a local chocolate place that makes great caramel truffles my husband and kids love. I get them each their own small box for their stockings.

KateSpade.com had an awesome Black Friday sale that lasted a week and I bought several presents on that website.

I've also done a lot of shopping on HauteLook.com and Gilt.com. You have to sign up to join, but it doesn't cost anything and you can opt out of their e-mailings. HauteLook.com is owned by Nordstrom and has excellent customer service.

Peabay-I went to Spoonsisters.com. Thank you for the suggestion. I found this really evil puzzle that I just ordered for my sister-in-law who enjoys a good puzzle challenge.


I'd like to help you out. Which way did you come in?

I've been doing a lot of internet shopping. Mostly from Amazon, Think Geek, Uncommon Goods, and Perpetual Kid.

Vast majority of mine had come from Amazon.

I got a few things at Farm & Fleet when they opened their Toyland back in October, a couple shirts for the older boys from Aeropostle online, and I got a couple things from Wal Mart yesterday. Im doing an altered notebook for a couple of people and I got the notebooks for those at my LSS. I also need to get just a couple gcs and I'll get those from my Kroger, like Miss Lerins Momma, for the gas points.

Id say that probably 95% of our shopping this year is coming from Amazon, though.

Peas-okay; Queues-not so much

Another Amazon shopper here! I've done almost all of mine there, it's so convenient. I checked out etsy, saw a few things I'll probably go back and order.
I'm still a fan of the the whole going out to christmas shop thing, I love to go to Target and Gordman's has some pretty cool stuff too.

Most bought from Etsy and Amazon.

I remember a pea saying something about "renting a cow", you choose the month you want to rent it, pay for it, and then you get some really good cheese sent to you during that month? (Gotta go find that link)

I'm big on etsy too. There are some wonderful etsy bakers that sell the most gorgeous sugar cookies. Alot of them are really filling up fast, so if you want to order, you need to do it now. Here are a few. I've worked w/some of them as I have done the packaging for some of their fancy cookies.

Sugar and flour Gorgeous cookies and they taste wonderful!

TS cookies

More gorgeous cookies!

And then here is a primitive stitchery shop that does really cute work at reasonable prices. (if anyone likes that style of decor)

This year it is almost all from Amazon and Kohls. Except for the fuzzy socks... which I get from Sams Club.
