Question of the Day - November 21st - Friday

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
When it comes to shopping for Christmas do you do more shopping on-line or in the stores?



I do a little bit of both. More on-line than in stores. I like the convenience of on-line shopping but l love the hassle and fighting of Black Friday.

99% online. I hate lines and getting to a store to find out they sold out.

Online definitely, I hate the packed stores, long lines, and pushy people!

I shop in-store for most things as you never know if your items are going to arrive at home damaged or broken (or even the wrong thing altogether!)

I prefer it that way, then you know you are happy with it before purchasing

I like the stores so i can have a good browse

I do some shopping in stores, but I would say 75% online. Its much easier

I do a bit of both. I usually do some online shopping for things I can't get here - the shopping is Very limited.

I do most of my shopping in stores. I'm very much a get in get out kind of person all year long. I know what I want before I go shopping, I get exactly what I want and get out quickly. Christmas shopping is the one time of year when I actually spend time looking around at everything, checking out the trends and new styles and such so I quite enjoy it.
Even waiting in line at the store doesn't bother me to much I generally look at a magazine or something.

Me too!! I start my Christmas shopping right after Christmas sorting stuff the all the people in different bags. So lots is done already.
I do some on-line shopping from catalogs if the need is there.

I do most of mine in stores, because I like to browse and physically touch things, haha. But sometimes I'll see something in a store and then find it cheaper online... though I haven't done much of that this year yet. I'm almost done with my shopping; I'm so happy! That way I can devote most of December to baking, decorating, and just enjoying the season.

About half and half for me. Some of what I tend to buy is only availabel online as it's not carried in most stores or in North America (collectors items and such) but I do still brave the malls once over the holidays to get a few things, like clothing, that I'd rather see in person before buying.

In store Infact I did a load today! There may be a few bits I need to buy online, like some Lush soap and bits for my sister because she`s vegan and is difficult to buy for

I do almost all in stores, I know it's cliche but I wait till last minute too, wich is stupid because I hate the crowds but I normally shop a bit every pay check and end up buying up until chistmas.
This weekend since I have no money I will be bakeing

Definitely online! I get claustrophobic in stores during the holiday shopping season, and find the variety online more appealing.
post #15 of 23
I do more online shopping these days.

Mostly in stores. I generally don't know what I'm going to get for someone until I see it. I get some things online, though, if I know what I want.

A little of both.... I went online to find my mom's gift last year (Gucci Rush perfume ... it was A LOT cheaper on the internet and she was shocked when she got it thinking I spent wayyyy too much). I've also ordered big gifts for my dad (truck parts) off ebay. This year we're giving gift cards again because we spent $1000 on each other for Xmas already (a gun for each of us, mine was $580 his was $400). Plus we'll be having a mortgage shortly. So a quick trip to Wal-Mart's gift card thing that has all the restaurant cards and we're good.

It's probably half and half, although I LOVE shopping online anytime of the year
post #19 of 23
The majority in stores.

I do a little of both

Some of both, but mostly in shops, and probably half of that in small shops.
post #22 of 23
Almost 100% internet. There is very little selection here and everything is expensive. Once a store sells out of something, they rarely get any more in until after the holidays.

A little of both.
