    I do both because I consider myself a very budget minded shopper. I have found wonderful deals on line at the holiday; but there is also something about the music and holiday spirit that you find that time of year in the stores and malls.

    I would rather shop on line than go to the mall anyday and I rarely have to pay for shipping. That is not an issue

    I prefer shopping in stores where i can see the merchandise. However, do to an injury and not being able to drive for a few months, i did almost all of my Christmas shopping online in 2008.

    I have a toddler and a newborn and unless I get a babysitter, there's no way I'm going Christmas shopping in a store!
