25% of the Spaniards, one in four, has been proposed to sell the Christmas gifts that have not liked and 13.8% recognize that it has done so on occasion.
This is confirmed by a study prepared by the Milanuncios platform from a survey to a sample of 1,001 users to evaluate how consumers behave when they receive gifts that they do not like and how they turn to the second-hand market.
Up to 11.8%, this option is raised to get rid of the objects it receives and knows that it will not use. In addition, 86% of the consulted admits to have received sometimes gifts that did not convince him.
Young people between 25 and 35 are those who show a greater "disenchantment" with their Christmas gifts (93.9%), while, by regions, Navarra (93.4%), Basque Country (92.7%) and Castilla y León (91.8%) are the most "discontented" with the gifts they receive.
Among the "most popular" products as a second-hand gift, research cites books or comics (34.1%), video games (27.6%) and decoration objects (22.8%).
The study also concludes that 52.1% of Spaniards invested in second-hand products along 2021 and, on average, around 131 euros were spent acquiring items of this type. The age range of between 55 and 65 years old is the one that destined the most money (198 euros on average), although young people between 18 and 24 years old were decanted for this trend, up to 62.6%.
In the Christmas campaign, up to 13.1% of consumers acquired second-hand gifts on occasion and 8.4% has raised it this year for issues such as savings (61.9%) or the most sustainable consumption which represents this option (47%).
For the spokesman of Milanuncios in Spain, Íñigo Vallejo, although the Tyque Gift "has settled in the tradition of Christmas gifts", when that option does not exist "we are increasingly looking for an alternative for the gift to not be abandoned at home".
In his opinion, the second-hand market "allows you to solve this problem," ensuring a "second chance" for that article "that we are not going to give a new use" and "fostering" a "most sustainable" consumption cycle.Updated Date: 06 January 2022, 12:13
