More than 36 percent of respondents to a survey commissioned by shopping-mall owner NEPI Rockcastle said they would spend most on cosmetics this Christmas, Poland's PAP news agency has reported.
Meanwhile, 34 percent mentioned toys and 27 percent opted for clothes and shoes.
When it came to the shoppers' own preferences, the largest group of female respondents named jewellery as the perfect Christmas present, with electronics items most popular among men, the poll found.
A notable proportion of both men and women said they would gladly receive gift vouchers as Christmas presents.
X-mas shopping spree
Fifty-seven percent of those asked said they would spend up to PLN 500 (EUR 106) on Christmas gifts, while one in three respondents plans to pay up to PLN 1,000 (EUR 210), and 11 percent are ready to splash out more.
The biggest group of male respondents (49 percent) reported buying presents for up to four people, while the largest group of women (41 percent) said they were purchasing gifts for up to eight persons.
One in five respondents reported buying presents for more than eight people.
Roughly half of female respondents and 42 percent of men said they planned to complete their festive purchases by early December. Only 5 percent of women and 11 percent of men said they would buy gifts just before Christmas.
The poll was conducted between November 5 and 12 on a sample of 1,000 customers of NEPI Rockcastle's 12 shopping malls across Poland, through direct interviews and a Facebook survey, PAP reported.
