With Christmas being the season of giving, it also is a time of materialistic giving. Christmas is themed around the idea of exchanging extravagant gifts for family and friends. But, we do have a group of people who take it beyond their circles by giving it to the needy as well. This idea of gifting brings warmth and comfort through the ice-cold days. Christmas has been celebrated for years, and we have watched it evolve. This year, the Christmas of 2021 had to take a major leap to adapt to the changing times. There was a change that forced new mannerisms and habits.
Christmas is the busiest time of the year in various retail industries. Toy stores, apparels, jewellery stores and more are the one’s that experience an increase in revenue. What is the notion behind gifting is a discussion for another day but for now let us look at the changes that the pandemic had forced the way people did business.
With COVID restrictions and the obvious fact that gathering in large numbers is not a good idea, people have restored to online shopping. Now, online shopping is not a new concept but it did spike up with the restrictions to be in a place physically. With Christmas, there is no stopping with the concept of gifting. The agenda might vary but the act of gifting to maintain tradition has to continue to take place. It is expected that the level of spending this year will witness a drastic increase in comparison to the past years.
One does not have to go through the entire process of blocking time in their calendar, finding means to get to the store and physically having to go through the mental process of choosing a suitable gift. All this while bearing in mind to maintain a budget because you don’t want to be broke for the new year. But, with online shopping, the entire process can be eliminated.
This is how the process would go,
- Open a suitable eCommerce store
- Enter keywords – MK watch for women
- Set your budget
- Analyse prices
- Conduct a business analysis
In a matter of minutes, the job is done.
Variety of options
We know that buying for the entire family can burn a hole in your pocket. But, for some reason, we do not wish to do anything otherwise. So, with a huge race to capture customers the competition has increased. Thus, it could only mean one thing – competitive prices, a variety of brands and multiple options to choose from. These online eCommerce stores eliminate the process of you having to run from store to store to fight for that latest vintage train set.
So, what are the ways people have chosen to share their gifts this season?
One of the easiest and after yet less thoughtful gifts. You cannot go wrong with a gift card as this gives the loved one the choice to buy something of their liking.
The quickest and safest gift to work with is jewellery. Everyone is happy, it is of value and you cannot go wrong. They make for very good keepsakes and you can hold on to them for a longer time.
Get someone a gadget and you’re everybody’s favour. A bit on the pricey end but if you want to get the title of Aunt of the Year then a little splurge is needed.
