17 Dec: Still Looking For The Perfect Gift? You’re Not Alone

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.

These last-minute shoppers pull out all the stops to get gifts in time for the holidays, including shopping online at work (24 percent), staying up all night (17 percent) and shopping on the way to a holiday event (13 percent).

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.
