I try to do mine as early as possible: this year I started in August, but I've been known to start earlier. Generally, I'll know what I'm doing by late September, and aim to purchase in October.
Mostly, this is because her birthday is January 1st, so I need to plan either two good presents close together or to be comfortable on the couch for a while ...

And I'm glad I did this year: Herself's Christmas present was finally in my hand last Thursday which was cutting it fine ...
To be fair, this year I had a jeweler make a set of earrings to match her engagement ring (which she has had for about 40 years now) and that takes time - scheduling, stone selection, actual manufacturing, approval, changes, assay ... It all takes time which is out of your control, and a fair amount of that means getting the ring to the jeweler without Herself being involved or aware.
They are good though, and I think she'll like them.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
