Hi all,

When would you say were the peak times for online buying of xmas gifts? -- I'm pretty busy now but at some point it must drop off right?

Thoughts appreciated...

Here in the US the biggest shopping day of the Christmas season is the day after our Thanksgiving - which is always held on the last Thursday of Nov. - Nov. 28 this year. So the biggest day in the stores of brick and mortar at least - will be Nov. 29th.

In some ways it depends on what you are selling. One customer of ours sells gift items that are usually a last minute purchase so their biggest week is the week before Christmas. Some other sites see the few days after Thanksgiving as being the busiest.
