Procrastinators Can Find Last-Minute Gifts at Guyville.com December 01 2012

Today’s men and some women are notorious for putting off holiday shopping until the very last minute; it’s a tradition seemingly as old as giving gifts in the first place! If we lived back in the day of ancient Egypt and Rome, our propensity to delay a task, such as holiday gift shopping at the market, would be seen as prudent and wise. However, around the mid-1700s, society’s tolerance to taking one’s sweet time to accomplish a task swung then other way and thus the negative connotation of procrastination came into being.



Even though procrastinating is now seen as a character flaw, studies have shown that the number of men who report that they procrastinate “often” has grown by six-fold since 1978. Also, one in five adults (women included) now self-identify as a “chronic” procrastinators. When it comes to holiday shopping, the excuses to do “anything but” are numerous and can include not knowing what gift to buy, bad weather conditions, busier-than-normal holiday schedules and financial problems.
