Stuck for a Christmas gift idea? Hitwise reveals the top 10 Christmas gifts we’re looking at online for 2016

We’re all dreaming of an easy online Christmas this year and if you’re stuck for a gift you buy (and have delivered) before Christmas Day, Hitwise may be able to help. It has compiled a consumer insights report detailing most searched for and clicked on products in the 4 weeks of November 2016.

Australian Retailers Association (ARA) Executive Director, Russell Zimmerman, said the rise in digital sales stems from the increased comfort levels of consumers around purchasing and browsing on mobile devices.

“With Christmas just around the corner, consumers commuting to and from work can finalise their Christmas shopping on the go,” Mr Zimmerman said.

“The increased sense of familiarity and confidence for mobile payments is due to retailers offering a range of options to allow shoppers greater convenience and flexibility this Christmas.”
