Poles to spend around €350 for Christmas this year

Warsaw, Poland – The Christmas shopping spree in Poland is poised to intensify this year, a new study has found.

According to the report “Christmas 2019”, by consulting firm Deloitte, based on the results of a poll conducted in eight European countries (Poland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Spain and the U.K.), Poles should spend on average 1,521 zlotys (€354) this year to celebrate Christmas.

This amount, which marks a 5% increase compared to last year, includes not only gifts, but also food and other expenses associated with the Christmas family gatherings and get-togethers.

According to Deloitte, Poles will still spend more on gifts for their dear ones (36% of the total) – including a wide variety of perfumes, cosmetics and chocolates – than on filling their bellies (34%). Travels and social gatherings account for the rest of their Christmas budget.

While nearly 40% of respondents said they would be buying their presents during the first half of December, a quarter of them anticipated the dread of crowded shops and shopping malls and declared they would go shopping in November.
