The shipping crisis has caused a supply shortage of almost everything, but as we approach the holiday season, there are a few major categories that will be hit hardest. For example, stores aren't receiving as many seasonal products on time, many of these holiday decor items won't even reach store warehouses by Christmas. Live Christmas trees may be harder to come by this year – and more expensive – because many of them have been hit by the increasingly climate and wildfires.
Another category hit hard by the shipping crisis is toys and games. While these aren't necessarily holiday-specific items, the demand for them skyrockets during the holidays as parents shop for their kids. Board games, in particular, will be in short supply because they require so many parts and materials that are often made overseas. The same goes for children’s toys as well.
