Early Bird Christmas Shopping Ideas

Buon Giorno, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Several years ago, I had made a New Year´s Resolution, that I would do all my Christmas Shopping while on summer vacation, so I did not get caught up in long queues ( lines ), overly crowded shops and an out of stock merchandise dilemma. I prefer to handle this project with great care and organization ... I have 5 distinct grandchildren, 2 daughters and their spouses and the Vet, Filippo. In addition, my Mom Eva, and Filippo´s parents. Then, the tiny details for colleagues whom we exchange with and a couple of very very close friends ... Shipping, is another dilemma we face ... With all of this in mind; here are some suggestions.

Here are some Early Bird Ideas ... Would enjoy hearing all about your treasures online and in shop ...
