Holiday Spending Expected To Rise This Year
Overall spending is expected to increase this Holiday Season. The Florida Retail Federation is expecting a 4 percent bump in state spending over last year. But Federation President Randy Miller says per person spending is expected to decrease slightly. He says shoppers are expected to spend about $935 per person this season.
“$590 on gifts for family, friends and coworkers. $207 on decorations, flowers and greeting cards and $140 on the most important person—themselves,” Miller says.
Experts predict some of this year’s most popular toys will include trolls, legos, microphones, and drones.
