Iunno, I feel that this event is meant to be about giving rather than receiving, so I don't like people going "hey give me gifts now so I don't get duplicates". Just be happy that you're getting something, this isn't meant as a way to maximize your haul, it's so people can be cool and be generous to people that they probably wouldn't otherwise. Last year people gave out gifts early because they thought they physically wouldn't be at a computer Christmas day to send gifts to people. If that's the case, go ahead, but otherwise, don't feel guilty that you might have bought a duplicate, because nobody here should be complaining that they got one.

Well it isn't about maximizing haul, I just dont want to seem like an ungrateful bastard when someone goes ahead and gives me something and they see I just bought it for myself. Then I've just gone ahead and wasted someone else's money when they were trying to make a nice gesture. double the disappointment for whoever was good enough to jump in.

don't make your wishlist visible until you're done buying on the steam sale

I wouldn't call it a waste of money, if anything you can just give it to someone else.

Spreading the cheer around to more than one person isn't really a bad thing. :)
