Peaceful instead of stressful. How to have a balanced Christmas this year?

The key to a good gift and a good giver

Mad rush at work before the holidays, school programs, gift-hunting, endless shopping lists: just some of the reasons why many people find the run-up to Christmas stressful. Yettel’s research shows that, besides being concerned about the economic situation this year, a quarter of Hungarians are stressed out about buying gifts for the holidays. How can we find balance in this busy time of the year and give a gift that truly brings joy, regardless of your financial means? Psychologist Angéla Dienes is now sharing some practical tips to reduce the stress around the holidays and gift-giving.

New research: Hungarians plan to buy less gifts for the same number of people this Christmas

ift spending declines, intangible gifts get more important

Yettel conducted a nationwide representative survey to explore Hungarians’ Christmas gift-giving plans and their expectations for the holidays this year. The impact of the economic situation and the resulting tightened family budgets are clearly reflected in the plans for Christmas spending. Four out of ten Hungarians plan to spend less on gifts or on celebrating Christmas in general, and there are also some who plan to celebrate with fewer loved ones, mainly for financial reasons. Yettel’s recent research also shows that the majority are happier with intangible gifts, and with that comes an increase in the number of people giving experiences as a gift. Three out of four respondents have already received a gift they were unable to use. A personal, intangible gift can be a solution to resolve this issue.

Special poems make photos accessible for the visually impaired
