    I am starting to refill mine with some of the gift sets of bath items etc, I picked up at the after Christmas sales at Target. I got a few toys 50% off the other night as well for my gift stash. Seems like there are lots of good deals in January and February.

    I started a gift closet years ago. I bought a couple boxes of chocolate and wrapped it. It didn't work out that well as I ate the gifts!

    I just started mine with the after-Christmas clearance sales, but I have a ways to go. I need a few more kids gifts.

    I am really learning some great ideas here. That is such a neat idea, once we get on track wiht paying off our debt I am going to start picking some things up if I come across some good deals.

    My mom keeps a gift closet. She gave me a shawl with wrist cuffs for G-MIL, we will see them in a couple weeks to exchange gifts, I'll put some clearance earrings with it and I think she will like it.

    Starting my gift closet in February.

    I have already started to fill mine back up! I have bought some great toys on clearance for next to nothing. I am putting some up for nieces and nephews, my sons and then the rest will go for birthday gifts when the boys are invited to those unexpected parties.

    I also bought some gift sets for the adults. I shop year round, so when Christmas arrives, there is no need to stress about going over budget. It is already taken care of by then.
