Where Do You Stand on Holiday Shopping?

Where Do You Stand on Holiday Shopping?

We're just beyond Halloween and at the very start of the holiday season but we know a few friends who make it a goal to have all of their gift shopping done by this point. They start with buying giftwrap as it goes on sale the previous year and work on it slowly over time, seemingly casually crossing names off their list as they find the perfect presents for their loved ones…

… which, while enviable, is just not the way it goes at my home. I tend to get going in earnest around Thanksgiving which I know seems nearly criminally late to some and plenty early to others. In other words, when it comes to gift shopping habits, everyone has a different style and mileage may vary.

We're wondering where you, the Apartment Therapy community members, fit into the holiday shopping spectrum - and while we are betting on a majority of early birds, we just might be surprised. Choose the reply that most closely describes your usual shopping timing from the list below and good luck with your list!

(Note - Later today we're posting a survey about gift giving styles, from store bought to homemade and more, so keep an eye out for that survey, too.)
