Okay, so I know that a lot of people on here are already buying things for Christmas, and some of you have been for a long time now. However, we all know how often and how quickly children can change their minds about what they want - what happens if they do this about a big Christmas present that you've already got? Do you have a back up plan, or would you give them the same gift? If, for example, they mentioned that they might want something in May and you got it right away, it's a reasonable assumption that the trends would have changed by the time December actually comes around, so what if they have changed their mind? This is one of the main reasons that I don't like buying things too early, because I am worried about exactly this!
