Hanukkah falls rather early this year, the first evening being the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, November 27. This means Hanukkah gift-givers must begin their holiday shopping extra-early, before all of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales and deals hit stores and retail websites. An interesting article by Accessories Magazine says that because of how early Hanukkah falls on the calendar this year, 31% of shoppers say they plan to buy less Hanukkah gifts than in past years, and wait until the post-Thanksgiving shopping deals to take advantage of discounts.
This may not be particularly good news for those anticipating Hanukkah gifts this year, but it is helpful in predicting holiday shopping trends. For the 69% of people who do not plan to wait until Black Friday to commence holiday shopping, the holiday shopping starting date has been pushed forward by a couple of weeks. Accessories cites an increased search on e-commerce sites for religious symbols and religious themed gifts. One particularly popular choice is religious symbol jewelry.
Star of David jewelry, hamsa symbol jewelry, and other jewelry featuring religious symbols is expected to be among the top gifts this Hanukkah and holiday season. Perhaps religious jewelry will top holiday shopping lists come Christmastime as well. Only time will tell, but you can beat the rush by exploring all of the religious symbol jewelry at EvesAddiction.com and finding the perfect Hanukkah gift so early in the traditional holiday shopping season.
