Year of the E-Christmas

This year, 2013, was definitely the year of E-Christmas in our household:  E-cards, E-commerce, and E-entertainment.

We got more e-cards (like those below), from companies and people than ever before.  E-commerce (Amazon, in particular) was the preferred source for nearly 1/3 of the gift purchases.  And E-entertainment – i.e, digital media – was a common, favorite distraction, from mobile app games to Roku streaming movies.

Merry Corporate Christmas 2013

It will be interesting to see if a nostalgic backlash starts to take shape in 2014.  Seems like there will always be demand for printed, handwritten cards, unique gifts from local merchants, and old-fashioned family entertainment like board games and outdoor hikes!
