The holiday shopping season will look a little more normal this year. The pandemic had some consumers scared to shop in person and ecommerce sales soared last year, but now shoppers are excited to get back out to flea markets and swap meets to find the best deals on their holiday gifts.
Even though many studies suggest that customers are eager to shop in person, holiday shopping behavior will be a hybrid of the old and new this year. Brands that optimize and align both their online and in-store presence will be positioned to thrive the most this upcoming season. This allows you to cater to everyone, and not just those who are comfortable with going to your market. Before sellers can do this, they need to know what their customers are looking for and spot any trends to stay ahead of their competition.

This smartwatch from DHGate is not only super affordable compared to other brands, but it also provides all of the tracking and notification functions to keep users engaged.
