This morning, I saw someone post that it’s two weeks until Christmas. TWO WEEKS?! How is that possible? Apparently, while I’ve been in the throes of finals week, the rest of the world has been celebrating merrily without me. I still have Christmas movies to watch, cookies to bake, and most importantly, I need to finish my Christmas shopping.
If you’re anything like me, you hate shopping when it’s crowded. I went out this afternoon to try to avoid the rush, but things still seemed a little busier than normal. Don’t people have jobs to be at? I did the first half of my Christmas shopping though, and I’m going to finish the other half Thursday. I tried to split it up by location; today I was at stores close to my apartment, while Thursday I’m going to venture out to the mall (and maybe do a little shopping for myself too!).
I’m definitely not the most inventive person when it comes to buying gifts, so you won’t see any holiday gift guides here. I did buy these pretty gloves at Target for myself today though, which would also make a nice gift for someone:
(and they’re on sale right now!)
I’m also excited to go to Lush on Thursday. If you’ve never been there, it’s a great handmade cosmetics company. I’ll be buying one of their adorable gift boxes for a friend, but it’s going to be really hard to resist buying something for myself… (I’m obsessed with their Ocean Salt face scrub).
Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? What are your favorite gifts to buy?
