Survey Shows 40 Percent of Christmas Shoppers Wait Until December [POLL]


Are all your Christmas presents wrapped and under the tree?  If not, you’re in good company. 

A 2013 poll by i-Link Research shows 30 percent of respondents do their Christmas shopping in early-to-mid-December.  The poll also shows 29 percent shop in November, 13 percent in October, 9 percent the week before Christmas, and 1 percent each Christmas Eve or Day or after the holiday.  I didn’t take the poll, but I can tell you this year, I was one of the group of people shopping in early-to-mid-December.

In the past, I’ve tried to start shopping right after Christmas for the following year, but it’s incredibly important to find just the right gift for just the right person.  How do you know that information that far in advance?  How do you know what your loved ones will even want or need that early?  It seems easier to wait until November or December to do it.

A week before Christmas, and I’m just now finishing up with the last person on my gift list.  It’s now a week before the big day…how have you fared?  Take our poll here:
