The gift of Christmas… Spending behaviours over the festive season

Christmas is a time of togetherness. It’s a chance to reflect on the year just gone and to enjoy the traditions that we each personally hold dear. It’s also a time of spending – the giving and receiving of gifts is a prolific part of the Christmas culture.

Research conducted by the CBA found that last year Australians spent $10.7 billion at Christmas. So, how and where are Australians spending in 2019?

We conducted a survey of 1,050 panel members to uncover how Australians spend in the lead up to Christmas.
