Reconnecting – When was the last time you had a really good catch-up phone call with a family member or distant friend? In a recent survey by Toluna in conjunction with VTech Communications, half of the respondents said it’s the best present they could get during the holiday season, better than a gift, card, or email.
Most disliked phone calls are from co-workers and neighbors.
Parents want time to just enjoy the season – A full third of moms and dads find it stressful and challenging to find a balance between getting everything done and actually enjoying it all.
Shoppers are still feeling the effects of the economy – Nearly half of us wish we had more money to give presents, and find it the most worrisome and stressful part of the holidays.
Togetherness – Consumers embrace the togetherness aspect of the season, and a holiday meal and family traditions rank highest in importance. (There are 13% of bah humbug folks though. So bah humbug to them.)
To help you reconnect with loved ones this holiday season, VTech has a wonderful holiday gift basket to give to one of my readers with chocolates, a festive holiday candle, long distance calling card, keychain digital photo frame, VTech Connect-to-Cell phone system, and festive holiday trimmings!
