15 Thoughts We All Have When Christmas Shopping

When it comes to Christmas shopping, things can no doubt get a little stressful. Every year, your list seems to get longer and longer, and no matter what you tell yourself, you'll always wait until the absolute last minute.

But the fact is, you're not alone. We've all been there, and every time we set foot inside the mall during the holidays, it's always the same story.

Just continue reading to see the 15 thoughts we all have when shopping for Christmas gifts.

The holidays are here and you're ready to tap into your Christmas cheer!

Yep, you pride yourself on your gift giving skills, and sometimes you even like giving the gift better than getting one (but not really).

Go you for getting out there before the crowds! You've totally got this, at least until you find all the things you want for yourself instead...

We all deserve to splurge on ourselves every once in a while, right?

Mom, dad, siblings, significant other, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, best friend, boss, pet...

We're not going to lie: Your bank account we'll definitely be hurting once you're done with all your shopping.

Obligation presents are the worst.

You've got all the time in the world! (Not.)

So. Many. People.

Well, they waited for the same reasons as you. And now you're all stuck in the mall together, fighting over that last "Frozen" doll like dogs.

Probably because you waited...

And I can shop in the comfort of my own bed. In my Christmas onesie.

Welp, that really sucks.

At least they can get what they really want then, right?

You've turned into a regular Grinch. But that doesn't mean you won't do it all over again next year!
