According toLog In, there are 65 days left until Christmas Day. So, even though I really don't get too into it until after Thanksgiving (since I still have that to plan and shop for and there is still Black Friday and Cyber Monday to check out), I am putting together my Christmas shopping list. I'll also start looking more carefully for things I can pick up along the way. One thing I plan to give is a throw blanket for a friend who likes to snuggle under one when she watches TV. The one she has now has seen better days. They come in varying prices, but there are a number of options for ten dollars or less. I've seen some cute ones at Walmart and Amazon. I'm curious about what ideas everyone else has for affordable gifts. What will you be giving your friends and loved ones this year?
