Holiday season spending

Home and holiday furnishings, which includes decorations, ranked in sixth place on a list of planned consumer holiday expenditures in 2018. According to the recent survey, Americans planned to spend 118 U.S. dollars on home and holiday furnishings on average. Socializing away from home topped the list, with consumers planning to spend 408 U.S. dollars. When it comes to total spending, most consumers planned to spend around the same amount of money as last Christmas, whilst 16 percent planned on spending more.

Shopping locations

Consumers planned to use a variety of channels for holiday season shopping in 2018. Whilst in-store shopping was the most popular choice, showing that brick-and-mortar stores are still of importance, online shopping came a close second. However, mobile shopping lagged quite far behind, with just 23 percent of survey respondents stating they would be using their mobile devices for holiday purchases.
