As many as half (50%) of survey respondents plan to shop online for gifts, giving the Internet a bigger lead than ever over discount/value department stores (43%), which rank as the No. 2 destination for gift shopping. This rise in Web traffic could bring retailers more cheer from their e-commerce sales. Survey respondents anticipate they’ll spend 47% of their budget online – matching what they plan to spend at physical stores for the first time. In prior years, people planned to spend more in the stores.
