    Now that I'm older and have trouble walking, I do a lot of online shopping.

    We probably do 90% of our Christmas shopping online now.

    It is so easy to shop online. I sometimes miss the hustle-bustle of shopping at stores, but don't miss the long lines and crowds. The one thing I do go out to buy is gift cards, but they are easy because you can get them at grocery or drug stores. I usually buy these cards for older gift recipients - like my Mom and Mother-in-law. I give them cards for restaurants, movie theaters, coffee shops. They don't need any more "things" in their homes as they are both in their mid to late 80's. Sometimes, I will end up buying them for my daughters. I know the stores they like, but also know they like to pick-out their own things.

    Well said. I'm like you - I miss shopping in stores at Christmas for the atmosphere, but I don't miss the lines! There's something about being out with the crowds, seeing the decorations, Santa Claus with lines of kids to see him, etc.

    I always like to shop the sales after the holidays for a lot of the following years gifts. Saves me so much time and I don't have to fight the crowds. Online is fun too. You just have to watch out that they don't send you damaged products, which has happened to me more then once.

    Like wstaple said, love the atmosphere around Christmas and that's why I shop almost all presents in stores.
    When it seems the magic slipped away...
    We find it all again on Christmas Day
