Experts have calculated how much money Ukrainians are ready to spend on Christmas table, gifts and entertainment

Experts estimate that the new year’s holiday this year will cost the Ukrainians on average in 1659 UAH.

In particular, food on the Christmas table are willing to spend UAH 806, gifts to relatives and friends – 769 UAH, other holiday costs and entertainment – UAH 721. That is, the program max is 2296 UAH. However, many of the respondents will spend only one or two points. Therefore, the average amount left is less. For example, 27% of respondents have planned their new year costs three counts, 30% – two (most often on the holiday table and for gifts), and 17% for a single article (as a rule, these costs are planned for the holiday table). This is stated in the December opinion poll Research & Branding Group.
