I buy presents from Israel, fruit from Gregory Groves, flowers from Pro Flowers, items from Macy's, books from Amazon, Entertainment books. However, most of the presents I buy I actually shop in stores for.

I prefer online shopping , because I can stay home and sit , instead of walking in pain.

I would love to be able to shop online. There's a problem though. My wife works from home. She's a snooper. If I buy her Christmas presents online, she's home when the UPS guy delivers them. Then she knows something's up.

"But!" you ask... "Can't you have them delivered somewhere else?". To work? No. But my dad lives just down the street from me. "Surely that's an ideal arrangement then!" Well.... no. I love my father dearly. But if I go over there just to pick up a package that's been delivered, it starts. What starts, you ask? The come in, have a drink, want something to eat?

Before I know it, it's taken longer to pick up the package than it would have taken to go fight through a mall and buy it myself.

And that, is why I still shop at the store. In fact I ran out at lunch time and got something for Sheila.

I have everything delivered to work so my wife has no idea what I'm spending our money on.
