What is National Shopping Reminder Day?
Anyone can fight through traffic on Christmas Eve to snag a gizmo, but you want your gifts to be significant. You also know that thoughtful gifts take time and foresight. One month before Christmas, National Shopping Reminder Day prompts us to complete our shopping and avoid the holiday rush.
Almost 30% of consumers finish their holiday shopping by Black Friday, but some of us still have items on the list. National Shopping Reminder Day is the signal to finish the task before the season gets hectic.
And if you’re shopping online, don’t forget that packages might need a couple weeks to arrive. You don’t want to pay extra shipping costs just to expedite, especially if that means some presents might be late.
With only 30 days left before St. Nick shows up, National Shopping Reminder Day can give us a final burst of energy to buy those final purchases.
