Do you do most of your Christmas shopping online?

I do because I hate the crowds and also because I can ship gifts to relatives without having to go to the post office.

  • We love to shop online. Nothing better than getting some shopping done in your jammies. I hate the mall, especially during the holidays.

  • For out of town people yes. I love free shipping. For those in town no, I like to shop.

  • Some, but not most. I really enjoy going to the store and shopping, especially during the Christmas season.

  • yes , i shop sales starting around august and try to get free shipping. having a toddler it's hard to spend enough time in a store, i think i get better deals online, b/c i can spend more time looking.

  • Its easier less hassel...I do both but if I can get free shipping I prefer online during the holidays! We started x-mas shopping last week so hopefully we can beat the rush! LOL I always look online to make their list though!

  • Normally I do none of it online. I rarely shop online period. I like to see and be able to touch what I"m buying. I like to know the quality of what I'm buying before I spend the money.

    It really helps though that we don't have credit cards, our debit card is usually low in funds, and the other card we have is loaded once a month (credit, works like a debit, and it's where our commission earnings are put every month).

  • I'm a single mom so if I want my kids presents to be a surprise they have to be bought online! That way I'm not trying to hide it in the cart when their nosey little noses are peeping in. Love online shopping!

  • I shop online when I have gift cards and can get deals on shipping. Mostly for christmas, I make stuff so there isn't a lot of buying for other than my son.

  • I don't do much of my shopping online at all. I start the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday. Its actually one of my favorite shopping days of the year. I love shopping in stores at holiday time, its so festive with all the Christmas stuff out, and they have Christmas music playing and i always treat myself to a peppermint coffee, and just spend the day from early early morning to about mid afternoon shopping. I normally get at least half the shopping done that day. I do have a few things on layaway already, so I could get the expensive stuff paid off ahead of time now I just have the little items left to shop for.

  • I usually do a little online shopping, but mostly in stores. This year I am pg and get tired easier- so I will probably do more online shopping. I will only buy products that I know where quality isn't a question- specific toy brands, clothing brands, etc.
