When Do You Start Your Holiday Shopping?

In The Mix: Your Favorite DJs Answer!

November 11, 2018

It feels like Halloween is so long ago and it’s nearly Thanksgiving at this point. Won’t be long until it’s Christmas (or Hanukkah – we see you, Producer Dave!). For this edition of In The Mix, we wanted to ask our DJs when they start their holiday shopping, here’s what they had to say!

Elizabeth Kay (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "I already started it, back in September. Now that I have a kid, I feel like it adds up, it gets expensive! So, I start months in advance. I’m going to be all done, probably a week before Christmas.”

Tony "Radar" Hess (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "When do I start my holiday shopping? Gee, let me think, can I text my wife right now and ask her if she’s started already? Because I don’t do any of the shopping, she does it all! And it’s always online. Oh, I take that back. I do go to the Black Friday thing, just because it’s tradition with my daughter, my youngest daughter. But that’s only because I get Starbucks and I can stay awake all night and watch everybody else shop. So, I’m out of it! Talk to my wife. Haha!”

Dave "Producer Dave" Stein (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "Honestly, I don’t shop for the holidays, I normally try finding hand-me-downs in my house if I need to give people presents. Or looking in my closet for some sort of fun trinkets to give people because I don’t know what people want and I’m Jewish! I don’t know what they get for Christmas. I do get a lot of Menorahs though, sometimes I’ll pass out Menorahs and dreidels, so look for that!”

Molly Cruz (9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.): "I start my holiday shopping on Christmas Eve – haha – honestly, I’m like so last minute with it. I will literally do it that weekend before and stress myself out and give myself so much anxiety. Or I’ll just do it on my phone, I mean Amazon is amazing!”

Aaron Carreno (1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.): "Look, I wish I could do it early like everybody else. But I’m a procrastinator, so I wait til probably – literally, I probably wait til - the weekend before the actual holiday itself to go buy my stuff. Thank goodness I live next to a Walgreens and a CVS; 24-hour shopping, wooo!”
