It's not too soon to be thinking about Christmas! Well actually it is too soon to be thinking about Christmas, but if you hate shopping as much as I do the idea of waiting until it's almost too late and then banging shoulders with every other person in the same boat, has me thinking that getting an early start is not that bad an idea. I find the big presents to be relatively easy; it's those Christmas stocking fillers that are my problem, so I have decided to grab something for that purpose whenever I can find it, no matter the time of year.
Most shops that sell party supplies will have small, fun items that can easily translate to a stocking stuffer, so any time I am looking for party accessories I keep a thought in the back of my mind that I should grab something for a Christmas stocking. It sounds weird I know, but it works, if you are looking for party supplies for a good Luau, and run across a rubber ducky, why not pick it up and save it for someone's Christmas stocking??
Come to think of it, you probably can't find a rubber ducky in December! How about the availability of a book or a CD, maybe you can find the ones you want now, that could be out of stock come December, and who says Christmas stocking fillers have to be elves or tree ornaments? There are all sorts of things I would like to see in a Christmas stocking that would be difficult to find in December, like a bikini for my girl friend for instance.
