Aussies’ gifting habits revealed

If you’re not interested in purchasing for a friend or loved one, why not self-gift?

In fact, eBay and Afterpay data revealed Aussies were more likely to treat themselves this Christmas than buy a present for the grandparents.

And when it comes to splashing cash, Victorians were the best at it, spending an average of $169 on self-love.

“It’s been a tough year so people are taking the opportunity to treat themselves this Christmas with fashion, electronics, beauty products and fragrances topping the list. And why not?” eBay Australia’s Sophie Onikul said.

What’s more, Aussies were more likely to drop their Dad from the Christmas list than their Mum, with 51 per cent not planning to purchase their Dad a gift this year at all.

“The lead up to Christmas can be a financially challenging time for many people, so it’s understandable that there will have to be tough decisions on who makes it on the Christmas list,” Afterpay ANZ sales director, Katrina Konstas, said.
