Five out of six people in the U.S. have purchased a holiday gift online. This represents a substantial increase over previous years. There are some very good reasons why. With millions of websites, it's a snap to zero in on the perfect gift for anyone on your list. The mall cannot possibly compete with the number of offerings available for a holiday gift online. Secure servers keep your transactions private with almost instant order confirmation and you need not battle the crowds.

I enjoy going to see the lavish Christmas decorations and beautiful displays at the malls and shops, but when it gets down to serious shopping, I prefer to do all my shopping for holiday gifts online. It's far easier, and I know I can find exactly what I want to fulfill my list.

There are a number of ways to search out the perfect holiday gift online. Try typing “search engine directories” on Google. I got 107 million results. Search engine directories categorize topics and products tracked by different search engines and enable you to quickly find thousands of sites with an array of products suited to your search.

Shopping for a holiday gift online allows you to find that unusual or handmade one-of-a-kind item you'll not likely run across in your hometown. If you search out your holiday gifts online well ahead of the holiday, you can also shop international sites.

Fine Italian leather goods, Celtic jewelry, hand-knitted Norwegian sweaters with pewter buttons, Portuguese majolica, gourmet French foods and wines, Swiss and Belgian chocolates are just the tip of the iceberg when shopping internationally for a holiday gift online.

Books, music and art items are readily available online. These three sources alone can fill in a substantial portion of your gift list.

Another major advantage of buying your holiday gift online is that you can often find pricey items like Lenox china and Waterford crystal at deep discounts (40%-60%!) and even get free shipping.

You can also arrange gift weekend getaways to a Bed and Breakfast, for a very special gift. When it comes right down to it, there isn't much you can't find when shopping for a holiday gift online!

Remember, online merchants don't have the overhead of the brick-and-mortar shop. They're anxious to please you, providing secure and prompt delivery. Competition is stiff on the net, which is good for both buyer and seller. Buying your holiday gifts online saves you a lot of footwork, stress and sore feet, while offering a much larger selection of goods and services.
