    Yes, I often can't wait to see my Husband's reaction to a gift so I'll give it to him early.

    Partially because I am such a kid I couldn't wait!
    Also a practical reason; it was something really needed ahead of time.

    This is the main reason I wait until the last second to shop- it's too hard to wait when you get them something really, REALLY good!

    I usually do give them early, especially if it is something my kids have requested for their birthday or Christmas.

    Usually the male folk I try to buy for always buy what they want, when they want... pains! Sometimes it forces you to give and or tell in advance. Personally I prefer to give random gifts... I don't really like the pressure of gift giving, especially at Christmas.

    I love shopping for Christmas but I tend to "over gift." I will start buying gifts then forget what I bought and buy more!

    Personally, I believe in giving gifts at random and unpredictable moments. EVERYONE gets you something on your birthday or at Christmas or for your anniversary - everyone gifts you on those special occasions, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. But if you want to REALLY show someone you appreciate them in your life, you appreciate what they mean to you, that you love them - if you want to REALLY make them feel on top of this world and give them a moment they will never forget: GIFT THEM WITHOUT A PURPOSE! That's right - give them something special on an ordinary day without any reason, without any ulterior motive, and without any advanced warning to expect something. I think you'll be happy with the results :)

    I agree. And.....I do that also. If I just happen to see something that I think my daughter or son, or a friend will like, I get it and surprise them with it. I love to do that!

    I got my girls tickets to see HIM for there birthday. They would have killed me if I would have waited, and it has been fun watching them count down the days til the concert.

    A similar thing happened to me. Bought my husband a "stocking stuffer" last Christmas, forgot about it, came across it in August!

    Far too typical of me, unfortunately. I'm always hiding things from myself.

    I ordered 2 of the same dvd. One for me, and one for one of my best friends. I wanted her to have it right away so that way I'd know whether to exchange it or not (in case it skipped or something)... and since her birthday was still a month away... :-D She had a kick out of it, because in her birthday card I added that I hoped I was her first, 'cos I'd never been someone's first! haha She was like "weeeeeell you gave it to me a month early, HAHA!" Heh, she loved it, so all was well!
