Malaga’s  parents are big Christmas spenders

MOST of Malaga’s parents spent at least €200 on presents for their children this Christmas.

A survey by Grupo Hofmann revealed 42% spent between €200 and €500 on gifts, an increase on last year. A further 37% splashed out a minimum €100.

Despite the apparent splurge, the data did reveal there was a greater focus on the practicality of presents this year, as recession-weary parents thought more carefully before making impulse purchases.

All participants in the survey spent at least five hours Christmas shopping.

The most popular gift choices included perfume, clothes and footwear.

  1. Biggest spenders in the most corrupt part of Spain, cheating the system and ripping people off here isn’t considered a problem it is a way of life that is why they have money to spend on presents

  2. If this is the average, and 1 in 3 in Andalucia are jobless, does this mean some are spending €600 or that the jobless are also spending €200?
