Crafting for Christmas

I don't know whether it's early or late to start working on Christmas! I promised myself I wouldn't rush like always and try to give gifts that are meaningful instead of junk, but we'll see how I do. I took my first step of "shopping from myself" and went through all of my own supplies and fabrics to see what I could do before running out and buying stuff for a specific pattern. (yea me!) This is actually close to a first for me.
I'm lucky. My job is one where I sit on the phones all day, so I can cross-stitch or plan patterns and stuff in-between calls. But I've got what I want to do for my parents, my brother, and my SO. Now I just need to see if I have the time to make it.
Also trying to get as many freebies and smaller travel samplers of different soaps and such for a gift basket for Christmas for a friend of mine. I think everyone else is getting cookies or something similar.
Is it OK to feel overwhelmed for the holidays when it's still only October?
