The Holidays are here, and that means shopping!

Although everyone does their shopping a little differently, there are basically 5 main categories of shoppers:

1. The Early Bird

You’re the reason stores start putting out Christmas decorations before Halloween is even over. You like to get your shopping done ASAP so you can enjoy the holidays instead of dealing with long lines and stressful parking situations.


2. The Procrastinator

Every year, you swear you’re not going to put yourself in this situation, and yet, here you are. It’s the week before Christmas, and you haven’t even made a dent in your shopping list. But that’s okay. You’ve done this before, and you can do it again! You’ve mastered the skill of buying everything on December 23rd, wrapping it, and having it under the tree by Christmas Eve. Procrastinators unite…tomorrow!


3. The Online Shopper

You hate dealing with crowds of people, packed parking lots, and long lines. That’s why you prefer to do all your shopping online. BONUS: You get to wear your PJs and stay in bed with your laptop! AND AMAZON WILL WRAP YOUR GIFTS FOR YOU?!?! You, my friend, are winning at this whole Christmas thing.


4. The Stress Ball

You want to make sure you get the right gift for everyone, and you overthink it until you do. Will your mother-in-law like the perfume you got her, or will she get offended and think you’re telling her she smells bad? What about your 20-year-old nephew? Maybe he’ll like one of those fidget spinners that all the kids have these days. Or maybe that fad is over. How about a year’s supply of avocados? Millennials love avocados, don’t they? This is stressful.


5. The Anti-Shopper:

You hate shopping any day of the year, especially around the holidays. So everyone on your list is getting some combination of gift cards, cash, and/or your love this Christmas. Hey, at least it’s practical! You only need one pair of slippers, but you could always use a Tim Horton’s gift card.


Whatever kind of shopper (or combination of shoppers) you are, embrace it and enjoy the holidays!
