In 2017, holiday retail sales in the United States are forecast to amount to about 680 billion U.S. dollars. Holiday retail spending is expected to increase 4-4.5% (Deloitte). The National Retail Federation reported that consumers will each spend ~$589 on holiday gifts. They also reported that “for some retailers, the holiday season can represent as much as 30% of annual sales, with jewelry stores reporting the highest percentage.” That’s a lot of gifts (and lots of products).
