If you feel like the start of the holiday season is getting earlier and earlier with each passing year, you are not alone. In this past, while the festive vibes came out on November 1, now it seems like as soon as Fourth of July ends, it is back to carols on streaming services and seasonal candy at the grocery store. The same goes for shopping and sales. Although it might be a bit puzzling to see snowflake décor in shops when the summer sun is still blazing, there is a point to all of this, especially this year.
Whether you are a planner or save things until the last minute, there are multiple incentives to shop early for the 2021 holiday season. Read on to learn more.

Fewer Sales and More Demand
Since many retailers have suffered financial losses due to COVID, and ended up with excess goods for multiple seasons now, they will likely offer fewer sales (or ones with not as generous of a discount) going into the holiday season. Or, if there are sales, do not be surprised if it is on older merchandise that did not sell well at full price. Similarly, there is likely to be more demand for the same items, since people have not been able to get them earlier this year.
The bottom line: shop as soon as you can to avoid disappointment. Looking for some ideas? Check out the following list of great gifts from Amazon.
