The estimated amount spent on the presents will take around half of the holiday budget. Some time ago clothes and gadgets were the go-to presents. Nowadays Poles would like to give their loved ones beauty products and perfumes, followed by sweets and books. On the contrary to the other UE members – such as the Belgians, Germans or Spaniards, who mostly expect money, the Dane who like to receive gift-cards and the Greek who enjoy receiving food. The studies show that recently sportswear and gift cards have also become popular.
