I've been putting it off, but I'm running out of time. I need to take the plunge and plunge straight into the chaotic malls. Help me.
I need to still do my Christmas shopping. I know! I haven't even started. I know!!!
I am dreading it! Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not dreading the buying part (I love giving gifts) but I am dreading throwing myself into the lions pit of hurried shoppers, irritable shop assistants and crying kids.
Oh and I have to still do that bikini shopping. Aaaaaaahhh!!!!!!

If I only I didn't have a personal "NO GIFT VOUCHERS" policy. It might change this year. Just saying.

This year for the first time, I adopted a "all vouchers policy"

because I am the worst gift buyer ever

I am with you on that one! Shopping malls at Christmas time suck! I will only be able to do my xmas shopping on the 24th!!

Just done mine and although i was going to hate every min of it, the shop staff in every store were so nice and up beat, it turned into a real joy!

online route perhaps?

Lord, London is gone crazy! never before have I seen such a shopping frenzy!

I so have the same no gift vouchers policy !!

And as Prixie mentioned ..try London it is 100 times crazier then SA...your lucky. I've landed up doing alot of my shopping online and getting it all delivered to work so far it has been brilliant! Oh yeah and the cute little street market by work which is a hidden gem.

Blondie I know the feeling all too well! It is such gorgeous weather here and the thought of being stuck in a mall is horrifying me!
Good luck!
