This article was written by in Consumer. Comments Off

Jennifer Mulrean over on MSN Money put together a nice article regarding results for a holiday shopping related survey. Here are some interesting tidbits:

* Most respondents are giving gifts to between six and ten people.
* 300 respondents (out of more than 2,000) are giving no gifts.
* A plurality (21%) of respondents are spending between $251 and $500 on gifts and 2.6% are spending more than $5,000.
* 12% said they went into debt for last year’s holiday shopping. The more debt they had, the longer it took to pay it off. Some are still paying it off.
* The most popular category of holiday gifts is clothing.
