The 2022 holiday shopping season has gotten off to an earlier-than-normal start, even by modern-day standards. For that, you can thank retailers trying to move out excess inventory by offering deep discounts and promoting early holiday deals.

While that’s good news for shoppers, some experts predict a ho ho ho-hum season for retailers. Not only have many consumers already loaded up on holiday gifts because of marked-down merchandise, but many aim to curb their holiday spending because of high inflation and an uncertain economy.

The upshot is that shoppers will likely avoid some of the problems they had last year, when many popular gifts sold out early because of supply-chain issues.

That doesn’t mean you can afford to wait until the last minute to do all your shopping this year. As usual, holiday gifts in high demand could be in short supply by the time December rolls around.
