I do both. I love getting out and shopping during the Christmas season...the music, the decorations, the sales...LOL. Hubs and I usually make a day of it on black Friday but I'll also do a lot of on-line shopping because I can get some amazing deals and have them delivered right to my office (hubs is a super snoop).

I make most of my gifts, and get supplies both online and from stores, depending on prices. I do some canned goods, so those I buy supplies for locally.

I would LOVE to shop in-store, but since I live in the wild, wild, west, the nearest shopping metro is 3 hours away! (We have a Wal-Mart that's only an hour away, but I don't shop Wal-Mart and it's not even a "Super" anyways!) To accommodate the shopping and the drive time, DH and I would have to get an over-priced hotel. After gas, food, and hotel, it ends up costing us double to shop in store. So, everyone receives very thoughtfully purchased online gifts!

I really, really do miss the malls during the holidays. I don't know what we'll do when we have kids...where will we get their santa pictures?!

We don't exchange gifts for Christmas but overall if we did, I'd do it online. I hate going near the stores within months of Christmas. There are parts of town we won't visit for a few months to avoid the crowds.

I get my ideas online - and find in-store when applicable. That may or may not have to do with the fact that we don't have a whole lot in terms of stores here, though.

I prefer online shopping. I get really really anxious in a crowded mall.

Online most definitely! Nothing like shopping online and having the stuff delivered to your front door...now that is shopping! Lol But, here lately I hit the malls. But I do it at times where there are no crowds...go when they open the doors first thing in the morning. When I have my lists and I know what I am going for I get it and I am out of there in no time at all...I really do HATE shopping!

lol same here. i always consider myself a very patient/kind person....until i hit a crowded shopping center. i need to remind myself to relax. i do love the holiday shopping-something about the warmth, holiday scents everywhere, christmas music, but normally i am much more of an online shopper.

I love shopping online! I live in the country so options are limited and hideously overpriced.

Sometimes I miss shopping in person but when I go into the city, the crowds get to me and I end up hating it! I actually have to sedate myself sometimes.

I'm about to do my Christmas shopping now and already freaking out. My boyfriend is so hard to buy for and on top of that gives the most thoughtful gifts which is incredibly annoying. Pressure is on!
