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.
