But as you can imagine, we're expecting the 2021 holiday season to be quite the whirlwind with major delays on all shopping fronts — from buying gifts to holiday decorations. According to Kristin McGrath, a shopping expert at RetailMeNot, we're in for another "unprecedented" year due to continued supply chain issues and an even earlier rush to score free shipping and avoid delivery delays.


Additionally, there's an expected increase in prices of artificial Christmas trees and holiday decorations this year due to increased shipping costs and hectic global supply chains, CNN reported. But according to McGrath, it might not make a difference. "Shoppers are planning to spend more than they did last year," McGrath says.
