This holiday season, I’ve found myself getting into the Christmas spirit much more than in recent years.  I’ve spent hours browsing toy stores and art fairs, as well as searching Amazon and Threadless for the perfect gifts.  This particular infographic brings up some interesting points about our changing view of holiday shopping.

In particular, I thought it was fascinating that online shoppers are predicted to spend 22% more than shoppers in physical stores.  No wonder this “Last Day to Ship to Receive by Christmas” visualization from Visual.ly has been so widely circulated over the past few weeks.
