What if Your Holiday Gifts are Stolen?

Turn the news on during the holiday season and unfortunately and inevitably, you’ll see stories of how a “Grinch” stole someone’s gifts from a car or from under a Christmas tree. As you do your holiday shopping, insurance agents recommend you make sure you have the proper insurance products in the event that your prized possessions are stolen.

Almost everything you see this holiday season will encourage you to spend money. You may feel pressured to buy the “best” gifts or top gift giving from previous years. In fact, according to the Consumer Federation of America, 1/3 of us planned on spending more during the holidays in 2013 than we did in 2012.
