Holiday Survey Ranks Jewelry Just Below Electronics

Electronics may generate more media buzz, but a recent
survey ranked jewelry just below that category on holiday wish lists.

According to the Cotton Lifestyle Monitor, jewelry ranks No. 5 among the most desired gifts on consumer’s 2010 wish lists, just below electronics. Gift cards hold the No. 1 spot.

Jewelry did not rank in the top five in the group’s 2009
survey.

The survey also found:

  • Clothing gifts “will be in high demand” as shoppers make up
    for restrained apparel spending.
  • Consumers are still seeking bargains, but are looking
    beyond “mass merchants.”
  • “Holiday shoppers are embracing their credit cards again.”
    Some 54 percent of consumers plan to use credit cards this holiday, compared with only 48 percent in 2009.
