CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 21, 2017--
Everyone has that one friend who finished their holiday shopping on Dec.
1 (and they haven’t shut up about it since). For most of us, there are
still a lot of boxes left to tick, and with Christmas falling on a
Monday and shipping deadlines quickly expiring––things are starting to
get grim. The reason? Some people are just impossible to buy for.

A Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN) survey of 2,000 Americans revealed that more
than 50 percent of people have no idea what to buy someone on their list
with moms and dads ranking as the most difficult family members to buy
for this holiday season. And this finding isn’t unique to just Groupon.
According to the National Retail Federation, 90 percent of us fail to
complete our holiday shopping by mid-December. The leading cause? Utter
“Look, no one wants to be the person doing their last-minute shopping at
a gas station on Christmas Eve because they waited too long to shop for
that impossible person on their list,” said Aaron Cooper, president of
North America, Groupon. “Groupon’s local experiences are delivered
instantly and a lot more personal than a Christmas tree air freshener
and a tire pressure gauge.”
The survey, conducted by market researchers OnePoll and commissioned by
Groupon, also found that shoppers become more certain of what they want
to buy as they get older. Participants in the 18-24 age group said they
were the most uncertain of what to buy while those 55 and older rated
themselves as the most confident.
