    Now that I'm older and have trouble walking, I do a lot of online shopping.

    We probably do 90% of our Christmas shopping online now.

    It is so easy to shop online. I sometimes miss the hustle-bustle of shopping at stores, but don't miss the long lines and crowds. The one thing I do go out to buy is gift cards, but they are easy because you can get them at grocery or drug stores. I usually buy these cards for older gift recipients - like my Mom and Mother-in-law. I give them cards for restaurants, movie theaters, coffee shops. They don't need any more "things" in their homes as they are both in their mid to late 80's. Sometimes, I will end up buying them for my daughters. I know the stores they like, but also know they like to pick-out their own things.

    Well said. I'm like you - I miss shopping in stores at Christmas for the atmosphere, but I don't miss the lines! There's something about being out with the crowds, seeing the decorations, Santa Claus with lines of kids to see him, etc.
