Holiday shopping starts now

The holidays are just around the corner, which means holiday shopping begins now. Black Friday sales are happening in early November and often span all the way until Christmas Eve. If you are concerned about getting the best deal, don’t worry, the sales are booming for 2021. 


With that being said, keep in mind that 2021 is suffering a rough time when it comes to shipping to homes and even stores. Many stores across the United States have reported a supply shortage and limited product for the upcoming holiday season. If you have certain items in mind for the holiday season and gift-giving, it is better to purchase now in-store and ensure that you have it before the holiday season officially begins. Many reports shared that it is best to buy in-store at the moment, unless you can guarantee shipping on the item. Items are on delay due to lack of stock and shipping is also delayed due to the overwhelming demand. 


This year has been rushed when it comes to holiday shopping -- take into consideration Halloween decorations. Halloween and fall decorations began selling in stores on Aug. 1 and quickly sold out. Very little stores had actual Halloween decorations the month of October up until Halloween. 


Christmas, on the other hand, has always been known for putting up supplies in stores in November. However, many stores began preparing for the season in October with Christmas trees, great deals, decorations and even holiday-themed candy. If you are wanting to spice up your home with some holiday cheer, I highly recommend going shopping now while supplies last. 


Ultimately, the holiday season (on the retail side) started in mid-October and will only continue until Christmas Eve. The best idea is to create your list now for all relatives, friends, co-workers and significant others, and begin shopping. This is not necessarily the worst thing that can happen, either. If you get your holiday shopping done now, you can enjoy the holiday season with a nice cup of hot chocolate and your favorite holiday movie on a cool winter night.
