9 out of 10 Shoppers Plan To Spend The Same or Less Than Last Year on Holiday Shopping

A survey of Giftster shoppers confirms a conservative spending pattern is in store for the holiday season and shopping is starting early once again.

Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, Oct. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a recent survey of Giftster members, 92% reported they plan to spend the same or less than they did last year on holiday shopping. 

Giftster, a popular online family wish list maker service – used by over a million members – recently conducted a member survey the week of September 20, 2022 on holiday shopping spending plans for this year. 36% of the 1,872 surveyed reported they plan to spend less this holiday season. 57% plan to spend the same as last year. 7% plan on spending more than in 2021.

Company founder Ron Reimann stated, “Our members tend to be a leading indicator of trends in shopping intent because they are more organized than most and are part of families with gift-giving traditions. It looks like this shopping season will continue the annual trend of an early start but with little to no growth in expected spending compared to last year.” 

Families use online wish list sharing services like giftster.com to give and get gifts that matter – and hope to spend money on gifts really needed or wanted as prices on many goods remain inflated. Online wish lists make it easier for families to stick to a shopping budget.
