Jennifer Garner Takes Violet Christmas Shopping (PHOTOS)

As December 25th looms ever closer, Jennifer Garner and her daughter, Violet Affleck (who turned five years old on December 1) kicked the Yuletide preparation into high gear, embarking on a Christmas-shopping expedition in Pacific Palisades, California.

The mother-daughter geared up for their retail spree with a trip to the library, where Violet picked up some reading material, then to a local Starbucks for some sustenance, before heading out to the stores. Wonder if they picked up anything for papa Ben Affleck while they were out?
