December is upon us and it's the same story every year: "What do I buy friends and family for Christmas?"
Most people give up on the idea of tackling the local shopping centre in search of the perfect gift and end up desperately choosing a last-minute gift on Christmas Eve.
But has Christmas changed in the era of social media and the internet?
The number of consumers opting to shop online during the pre-Christmas shopping marathon is increasing year upon year: shopping online makes gift-buying less stressful, more comfortable and, in some cases, a lot cheaper.
According to Deloitte's "Holiday Survey," more than half (57%) of all gifts will be bought online this year, that’s 2% more than in 2017.
Research shows that despite the number of days spent shopping before the holidays, Black Friday and the Cyber Monday, "last minute" purchases are more common than in previous years, with the Christmas shopping period stretching from mid-November until right before the holidays.
According to estimates, online gift-buying traffic peaks during the first and third week of December.
A true Digital Christmas is one that uses innovation in order to buy gifts from the comfort of home, choosing to spend the time saved with loved ones over the holidays.
Numerous Christmas-related gift trends are increasingly pointing towards smart and hi-tech gadgets.
Smartphones, tablets, wireless headphones and drones are great original gift ideas to surprise friends and family on Christmas day.
