Some highlights of shopping tips include:

  oSeriously Santas, have a list: A recent survey by CashStar showed that
    mail carriers, neighbors and the babysitter rank among the most-forgotten
    gift recipients and millions of others are overlooked. Check here for an
    infographic with other data Stone can expand upon.
  oIn 2012 Ho-Ho-Ho is Mo-Mo-Mobile: Hundreds of retailers like Starbucks,
    Gap, Sephora, and Williams-Sonoma have optimized their websites, mobile
    apps, and even their stores so consumers can shop on-the-go with their
    phones. Stone can expand on how consumers should look for deals and
    leverage easy, personal and popular eGift Cards this holiday season.
  oDon't forget the basics: Have a plan and take a breath when you head out
    in these next weeks. There is still plenty of time left and more tools
    than ever to help.

"The most important things for shoppers to remember are not to panic and that
the holidays are a time to enjoy, not stress over. Holiday shoppers should
take a deep breath, get their plan together and realize that they are armed
with more shopping tools than ever between mobile devices, retailer incentives
and eGift Cards," said Stone. "There is still a lot of time left in the
holiday shopping season. Thanks to technology, a few minutes before a holiday
party is actually still enough time, as consumers can even send a personalized
eGift Card from their phone as they walk through the door to grab some eggnog.
Or, they can print an elegant foldable version before they leave home to hand
deliver it on arrival."
