Forty percent of Americans — including 51 percent of parents and 75 percent of people between 18 and 34 — postpone gift giving for themselves and others until after the holidays to cash in on deals, according to a new survey from Best Buy1.

Seventy-five percent of Americans say that just because they started their holiday shopping early doesn’t mean they’ll finish early, according to a new national study1 commissioned by Best Buy.

As they consider their final shopping lists, 67 percent of Americans believe tech gadgets are easier to shop for than clothing as a last-minute holiday present.

10 Dec: Treat Yourself: ‘Self-Gifting’ is a Popular Holiday Trend

They say it’s better to give than to receive — but why choose?

More and more Americans are indulging in “self-gifting” at the holidays, checking something off their own wish lists while out shopping for loved ones.

A recent survey commissioned by Best Buy found that nearly 85 percent of shoppers take advantage of sales or price discounts during the holiday season to buy gifts for themselves (or a group gift for themselves and their households). That figure is even higher, nearly 90 percent, for shoppers ages 18 to 34.

09 Dec: How to Defend Doorstep Deliveries from Holiday Grinches

You ordered something online, but you’re not going to be home when it’s delivered. What do you do?

Free holiday shipping is a great perk for shoppers this time of year but, sadly, there are Grinches out there who will steal packages from doorsteps.

Fortunately, there are many options to protect your packages.

  • For starters, sign up for delivery-tracking notifications. That way you’ll know when you need to be home to get your package.
  • If you’re expecting something delivered by UPS, you can go online and designate whether a delivery person can or cannot leave a package without getting your signature.
