How Does Your Spending Change at Christmas?

by Adam on November 28, 2012

It’s almost Christmas…it’s less than a month away and maybe you’ve even started your Christmas shopping.

I certainly have not made a start yet but I came across this great info-graphic about ‘Holiday Spending’. It shows a side-by-side comparison of how much men and women plan to spend at this time of year.

Based on data collected in the US from a survey by BIGinsight, the infographic shows some surprising (and not so surprising) findings:

In summary:

  • Men will spend more this holiday season – Men plan to spend $51 more than women
  • Women start shopping earlier than men – 15% of women started their holiday shopping before September
  • There is a Gender Gap between gifts for friends and family
  • Men plan to spend almost twice as much ($30) as women ($16) on gifts for coworkers; AND plan to spend almost $30 more than women on gifts for their friends
  • Women anticipate spending more ($427) on gifts for the family than men ($416)
How will spending be this Christmas?
Have you got a plan?
