Christmas Shopping: Have You Started?

Last Minute Christmas Shopper

Christmas is just a few short days away, but no need to panic if you haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet, because the good news is you’re not alone. Not by a long shot!

According to Consumer Reports, it looks like there is going to be quite a few last minute shoppers out there as 31% of us haven’t bought a single Christmas gift yet!

You know there’s a name for these people. They’re called husbands.

This news should also make you feel a little bit better, of the people who have started their Christmas shopping, 50% are less than halfway done.

And then of course there is the 11% of us who reported being completely done with their holiday shopping. People like my wife, who finished up in late July.

I don’t know about you, but these people make me a little nauseous. How can a person be that organized?

I can’t imagine missing the opportunity to throw an elbow at some poor unsuspecting shopper that’s trying to reach for the last PS4 on the shelf. That’s half the fun of the last minute Christmas shopping frenzy isn’t it? 

So to all my fellow Christmas shopping procrastinators out there, best of luck finding a parking spot at the mall this weekend that’s closer than Tea, and if you would be so kind as to not buy the last remaining women’s “UGG down jacket” in a size medium and something called a “Buff” before the mall closes on Christmas Eve, I’d sure appreciate it!
