Even though Black Friday is still four months away, new research shows a number of shoppers are well into their Christmas shopping. I've already started collecting a few gifts for family.

Based on the survey:

• 13 percent of Americans have already started shopping for the holidays.

• 17 percent plan to take advantage of Christmas in July sales.

• 11 percent said they shop year-round for holiday gifts.

• Almost a quarter who have children younger than 6 said they have already done at least some shopping

• 15 percent said they have bought most of their presents, and 4 percent said they are completely finished.

• 36 percent won't start on their holiday lists until September

• 21 percent said they'll wait until November

Have you started your shopping yet?
