It’s a well-known fact: Most men hate holiday shopping. Here’s a list of tips from that will help men everywhere stay sane during the craziest shopping time of the year.

Plan your attack: When shopping, make like a ninja — get in and out before anyone knows you are even there. If you must go to the mall, prepare in advance. You should know what you’re looking for, how much it costs, and where to get it before you leave home. When shopping online, shipping times vary, so expect orders to take at least a week to arrive.

Tune out: Bring your MP3 player with you. Your music may not be festive, but at least it won’t drive you crazy.

Shop online: You’ll save money, avoid the crowds, and find multiple gift ideas with the click of a button. You’ll save a lot of time by comparing price, availability, and reviews of products on the Internet.

Support the trend: If you’re stuck for ideas, find out what other people are getting your shopping target and get them something that compliments that gift. Is someone getting them skis? Buy them ski goggles and ski wax.
