    3. AndrewTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:07am PST

      I have started my shopping, but I’m not done yet. Just looking forward to spending some quality time with friends and family.

    17. Alicia OTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:17am PST

      I haven’t started my Christmas shopping yet as, being a poor student, I can’t afford presents this year! This GC would give me a chance to buy a little something for my family!

    18. sueTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:18am PST

      My shopping is never done as I always find someone to add πŸ™‚

    19. MariellaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:18am PST

      I’ve already started Christmas shopping and have a few more special gifts left to by!

    20. TessaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:20am PST

      I am half done my shopping

    21. SherryTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:21am PST

      Christmas shopping is done!!!

    24. JessicaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:22am PST

      I have yet to start shopping mainly because I hate going into malls at this time of year. We also do a name draw in my family so we don’t find out who we have to shop for until the end of November.

    25. PeterKTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:24am PST

      I prefer shopping on christmas eve – the stores are actually nice and quiet.

    26. LisaBTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:25am PST

      Half my family lives on the other side of the country (or ocean) so I have to have some shopping done VERY early. The rest I procrastinate on, for balance.

    27. leannTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:26am PST

      i haven’t even thought about christmas shopping yet. school was too hectic to even bother. 8 projects all due and the last one is due tonight.

    28. SusanTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:27am PST

      Not only have I started my shopping, I’m done (except for the turkey & fixins). But I would happily hit the shops again and spoil the love of my life.

    29. taniaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:32am PST

      5 more gifts to go!

    30. rinoTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:33am PST

      Shopping, haven’t even started!

    31. SharonTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:34am PST

      I always think I’m done with shopping – only to discover something else needs to be added to the list.

    32. ParkerTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:38am PST

      My stuff to mail is done, but the gifts for people here = next on the list!!

    33. TracyTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:39am PST

      Started shopping but haven’t finished!

    34. Anny ChihTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:41am PST

      The first thing I thought of was how much stuff I could get at Daiso with that gift card.

    35. Alan CTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:42am PST

      All done! Just kidding. I’m so dead. πŸ™

    36. SabrinaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:43am PST

      I haven’t been able to start my shopping yet… hopefully this week but most likely will be next week πŸ™

    37. LoriTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:43am PST

    42. MayTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:47am PST

      I’m down to my last 3 but most important gifts: mom, dad, and boyfriend. The $250 GC would be a pleasant win!

    43. EmmaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:47am PST

      I have barely started shopping at all! Only one present so far. Eek!

    44. Amy W.Tuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 10:48am PST

      Yours Truly

    49. Madison NortonTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 11:00am PST

      i refuse to start until december 23rd. Makes the holiday season super exciting and unpredictable. Once I still had presents to get on the 24th 2 years ago during that massive snowstorm. took me 2 hours to get a golfs tore gift certificate.

    50. MardaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 11:03am PST

      I have not started my shopping yet! Unless I count that stuff I bought for myself last week πŸ˜‰

      It’s always been a thing in my family to do it the week before Christmas. We are all a bunch of procrastinators.

    51. TiffanyTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 11:03am PST

      I started 2 of my 10 this weekend and as a result I lost my wallet πŸ™ this would be amazing to win.

    52. SeanTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 11:05am PST

      Finished! I have never been this on top of presents before! I’ve even wrapped most of them!

    53. KatieTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 11:08am PST

      Stocking stuffers only

    54. VeronicaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 11:13am PST

      I’ve definitely started and most of my purchases have been online. However, I usually visit places like the Christmas market and other smaller shops for anything unique.

    55. SandraTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 11:21am PST

      I’m half done with my shopping. Hopefully will finish up before Xmas Eve!

    59. Jenny C.Tuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 11:30am PST

      I’ve started my shopping…ish. Only done the things that I could buy on Groupon! Lame. Time to hit the stores. Should be doing it when the weather is rainy and drab, but so hard to leave the house. Humbug!

    79. SaraTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 2:17pm PST

    93. Jennifer M.Tuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 4:18pm PST

    97. MariskaTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 4:26pm PST

      I’ve tried to get the shopping done early but have not been inspired by what I’ve seen out there this year. Seems the local boutique shops are the way to go to get something unique and original.

    129. JeffTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 6:33pm PST

      Richmond is a wonderful destination for shopping that has really been building up over the past decade or so. I’m half expecting the town centre of Richmond to be named the third metro towncenter aside from those of Vancouver and Surrey. I’ve got quite a bit of shopping done but I still need to buy for a few more people.

    130. Tina LeeTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 6:45pm PST

      I’ve start my shopping and am mostly done.

    131. SamTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 6:53pm PST

      Half done shopping…Thank God!

    132. ElaineTuesday, December 14th, 2010 — 6:54pm PST
