What Your Holiday Shopping Timing Says About You (INFOGRAPHIC)

Christmas is behind us and as usual, we bought lots and lots of gifts for our friends and family. But not everyone is doing their Christmas shopping the same way and at the same time of the year. Some of us start as soon as the holiday is done, and others wait until the 11th hour (like me).

The three types of shoppers

It seems that there are 3 types of Christmas shoppers. Personally, I fall into the last one, The Last-Minute Shopper. I’m not very fond of Christmas shopping, so I wait until the last week, sometimes the last day, to buy gifts. Like 26% of this category, I admit to procrastinating.

In the 1st category, The Early Bird, 41% of those shoppers buy their Christmas gifts early to avoid last minute stress and in the 2nd one The Deal Seeker, 95% shop on Black Friday to get the best prices.

The infographic

The TurboTax Blog team has come up with this cool infographic that classifies holiday shoppers in 3 categories. According to the infographic, whether you shop all year long, wait until the last moment or seek the best bargains reveals a lot about who you are, what you buy, and how much money you spend.

In this infographic, you’ll also find 3 useful holiday tips to help you avoid tax headaches. So if you’re curious to learn more about your holiday shopper type, check out below.

  1. HI Nataly,

    You and I are two peas in a pod I see. I am also in the third group. I start my heavier shopping over the last two weeks because I always thinking I get better deals during that time. I also like to just get a bunch knocked out at once. Glad you enjoyed your Christmas. Have a safe New Year. : )



    1. Hi Irish,

      You’re right, we definitely have a lot in common! I also like to buy a whole bunch of Christmas gifts a the same time.

      Thanks for stopping by and for your comment! I hope you had a great Christmas and wishing you an amazing New Year!


  2. I usually wait until the last minute but this year I started early. If I saw something for someone I’d get it and before I knew it my list was done by mid-December. I hope to keep that up next year :).

    Glad you had a great Christmas gf. Happy New Year!



    1. Hi Cori,

      I should follow your example and do the same thing this year. Also, I would be less stressed about getting all done in time and could relax the rest of the year. We’ll see! Lol!

      Thanks for stopping by, gf! Happy New Year to you and your family! 🙂
