Don’t Stop Watching Sports To Shop: Do Them Both at Tailgate Social!
Black Friday normally marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season, but for a lot of dudes, that’s not necessarily true. According to InsightsinMarketing.com, 38% of men think they will still be shopping on Christmas Eve and 5% of men will finish shopping at the last minute. That’s probably because men get bored after 26 minutes of shopping whereas it takes women two hours to reach that point. A lot of that stems from ancestral behavior concerning hunting and gathering, which is also a reason why men typically like sports more–it evokes the thrill of the hunt, baby! So instead of hitting the mall this year, do what comes naturally and spend Black Friday at Tailgate Social! You can still take advantage of the deals online while you dine and watch some sports–just follow these easy tips to avoid a physical shopping trip.
There’s a reason why Jeff Bezos can afford to go to outer space–he built an online marketplace that’s out of this world. Amazon literally has almost everything, and they have Black Friday prices just like any other brick-and-mortar store. They also have the genius idea of Wish Lists, so you can look up a loved one’s preferred holiday gift list and buy them something they actually want with just one click. You can even opt for gift wrapping, so there’s another part of the process done and won. With Amazon, you can probably finish the majority of your holiday shopping in the span of one halftime. If you manage to do that, treat yourself to one of Tailgate Social’s #1 Draft Picks, The Buzzer Beater.

It’s as if Hansel and Gretel made a shopping list–just follow the cookie crumbs to the source.
