      And they're off! The Christmas buying season is underway now. As a matter of fact, many consumers started weeks ago. What to buy though?

      Today's Stumper is: What type of gift will be bought most often during the Christmas season?

      1. Toys
      2. Gift cards
      3. Apparel and clothing accessories

      The answer is apparel and clothing accessories.

      The National Retail Federation surveyed shoppers on what they planned to buy this season, and here are the results from its website. A little more than 60 percent of respondents said they planned to buy apparel and clothing accessories. Another 56 percent said gift cards and 46 percent said books, cds, dvds and video games. The website says the most requested gift was gift cards.
