Consumers are spending their dollars wisely, with gifts such as clothing, personal care items, and spa packages on their shopping lists.
Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) December 02, 2011
Topical BioMedics new line of spa-quality gift sets meet consumer demands for gifts that are at once practical and pampering, as well as affordable.
The holiday shopping season has kicked off with a bit more bang than economic analysts expected. According to a National Retail Federation (NRF) survey conducted by BIGresearch, more shoppers visited stores and websites over Black Friday weekend—and spent more—than a year ago. In particular e-commerce saw growth of more than 16% over last year, according to Shopper Science—an increase five times faster than the growth of the total retail industry.
Despite these gains, Ecommerce-Guide claims 84% of consumers intend to spend less or the same amount while shopping as compared to last year.
Budget-minded consumers are seeking useful gifts that won’t break the bank, and spending their dollars wisely. Gifts that fit the bill best are practical, special and a bit trendy. Such useful items as clothing, personal care items, and spa packages are on shopper’s lists.
According to Pam Goodfellow, consumer insights director at BIGresearch, “In 2009, it was all about personal, practical gifts, and last year consumers wanted to treat their loved ones to something special. This year, it’s a little bit of both.”
There are some new product offerings from Topical BioMedics, Inc., that are practical yet pampering, and appropriate for both men and women. The line-up of eight health and wellness holiday gifts fit into every budget and lifestyle and includes either classic Topricin pain relief and healing cream or Topricin Foot Therapy Cream, along natural spa-quality products that can be enjoyed at home for better health and pain-free pampering. Specially priced from $24.95 to $65.95, these relaxation and active lifestyle kits are valued at $35.00 to $85.00. An additional 25% off the spa kits is available this season with promo code SPA25.
“Health is truly wealth, and we are delighted to offer consumers a selection of beneficial, pampering gift ideas this season that are on-trend and affordable,” says Lou Paradise, President and Chief of Research, Topical BioMedics. “We are also on the trend curve with e-commerce since these special kits are only available directly from our company, and our web sales along with phone orders have been very brisk this season.”
