Poll: Have you done any Christmas shopping in person?
Non-essential retail reopened last week.

THE TIME FOR the giving and receiving of Christmas gifts is drawing closer by the day. 

This Christmas will be a different one than most, with a lot of people opting to buy gifts online and often have them delivered straight to the other person’s door. 

However, judging by the crowds in Dublin city centre these days, many are still buying at least some of their presents in person since non-essential shops reopened last week. 

So today we’re asking: Have you done any Christmas shopping in person?

Poll Results:

Yes, I buy a mix of online and in person (4304)
No, I buy all my presents online (3355)
Not yet, but I plan to go soon (1937)
Yes, I buy all my presents in person (1316)
