Online shopping is clearly growing year on year.

Going to the shops for me is a massive no no particularly just now as they already seem to be jam packed!

So I'll probably do 70-80% of my shopping online.

What about others? How much of your Xmas shopping so you expect to do online? :)

We've done about 90% of our shopping online this year. The only thing we physically went to fetch was some toys from Toys R Us for our daughter.

I'm having to do the dreaded high street run this weekend. Not looking forward to it :(

But hey it is nearly Xmas :)

I actually did less online this year - probably 50-60% as opposed to 70-80% last year. I've found that going out and spending actual physical cash makes me a bit tighter, which in my position is a good thing :D

I only have a few to buy for and prefer to do it in person.

I like to properly think the gifts out and make them that bit more considered and special.

I'm off to Amsterdam on Saturday and plan on doing my shopping there :)

I guess you could say i'm going dutch - I just hope people aren't surprised when I ask them for half the money back :p

I typically do most of mine in person, to be honest. Actually, I would say I do half and half - half online and half in person. I have a lot of family in America, so I typically do all of theirs online so I can get it sent straight to them without the hassle. The rest I prefer to go out and do.

We will be doing the same again this year. Will have a single run to the shops, but everything else will be purchased online, and most of that will be from Amazon.
