    I like to shop online because is easier to compare among the different stores. Sometimes I also chose In-store pick up, to avoid expensive shipping charges

    I prefer to shop online so that I don't have to fight the crowds. Another positive is being able to compare prices; you sometimes get better deals over the internet than you do at the stores.

    I bought most of my small gifts from Etsy.com. I didn't have time to go all over the place and I wanted unique things.

    The deals that I found online were amazing. I also shopped on Ebay quite abit, and had the sellers send the gifts to my friends (minus the invoice, of course!) The only thing I went out to buy were Stocking stuffers. I'm not sure how much money I saved, but the time I saved was great!

    My daughter wanted the "old School" type of ear muffs! I looked everywhere. It took me all of about 2 minutes to find the perfet pair. In the future I will save fuel and frustration by looking online first!

    I'm not a fan of malls or crowds, so I try to avoid them in Nov and Dec. I pick things up throughout the year when I travel to interesting locations and then finish up my gift-buying online.

    I did my entire christmas shopping on Amazon. Was so nice to shop from my computer and not have to to fight the crowds!
