Sleigh Bells Ring...What Do you want For Christmas?

Posted by Kero at Sunday, August 29, 2010
Yess!! Hubby gave me a green light to start my holiday shopping. We got a huge balikbayan box to fill up for friends and family back home so the weekend was spent at Deira City Center and The Dubai Mall.

The boys wandered off the mall while I went around doing what I do best hihihih. I visited plenty of stores but decided to make purchases on Kinokuniya Bookstore, Aeropostale, and H&M. 


Do you still give books as gifts to children and adults? These two hard-bound Christmas books are for our new family friends. The kids are half-Filipino and half-British so I really don't know what to give (they pretty much have everything waaah!). I think books, (though boring) are always a safer choice =)


I bought two collared shirts for Hubby's nephews who are now attending the university. I especially love stores who give complimentary gift boxes. The H&M teal is for my son's winter gear.

Well, we got a long list to check off and I hope we don't miss on anybody hihihih! Share us, what do you want for Christmas?

No no no no ... I cannot bear that it is nearly that time of the year again. It is so very chaotic and stressful when it should just be the very opposite.

Early shopping nga.

Happy MYM!

It's too early for me to even think about Christmas, but I do have to shop for my daughter-in-law's birthday.

Happy Blue Monday, Kero! Check out my book giveaway.

I have 7 children so I've got to shop early too! I love to give and get books for Christmas---my family knows they'll each be getting at least one! :)

There are three things I want most for Christmas: a dress-maker's form, a pearl necklace, and anything from the Victorian Trading Co. catalog!

Have a wonderful day! Be sure to visit my blog for a great giveaway!

It pays to shop early. I usually have mine done by now, but it has been too hot to think about Christmas shopping.
