If you disagree with relatives on COVID-19 vaccines, don’t look for gifts with your name under the tree this year. According to a new study by CoinStar, one in eight Americans plan on skipping holiday shopping for family and friends who don’t share their views on the coronavirus vaccine. Meanwhile, nearly two in three Americans say they’re looking forward to the holiday season this year, despite many not buying as many gifts due to budget constraints and others complaining about COVID-19 uncertainty. Specifically, 39 percent of the over two thousand respondents say they can’t afford to buy as many gifts as usual.
Another 34 percent blame their tight holiday budget on either being unemployed or working a low-paying job.
