Yeah, my Christmas shopping is DONE...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketYeah, I'm one of those. I just completed my Christmas shopping. You see, I pick things up throughout the year, when I see something on sale (hey, we're a family of many living on one income!) or when I see something that I just know they'll love.

I just got my hands on what the 15 year old will die for. I'd had trouble getting it, as all the local places were 'out of stock' or on 'backorder'.

So... I need ideas on how to disguise it for the girl, so she'll really be floored.

I'm also not all freaky about being 'fair' and spending the same dollar amount on each kiddo. Hey, if my lil one really will love a jack-in-the-box, she's getting one even though it might be a $10 gift. They each get what they want (but not everything they want!), but sometimes I'll spend much more for one kid than another. There's a good amount of years between them, so it's not obvious. Man, I love getting a deal...

So, I welcome your suggestions on how to surprise the girl.

Buy her some socks and underwear. Then wrap the gift in the middle of the fake gift and wrap it all up! She'll think she's just getting socks and undies!!!

Sorry, Blogger posted the same thing twice! BTW, you suck!!! I have no idea what the kids will get this year (I guess nothing if my client doesn't get me some work soon!)!

You could always wait and give it to her after she's opened the gifts in her stocking...She might think she's not getting it after all.

I like Rony's idea. But do it quickly, poor thing.
