Slovaks are more likely to find clothing than any other item under their Christmas tree this year, according to a November poll by TNS SK.

1,021 respondents were asked what presents they would like to get, what they intended to give, and when they would start buying them.

About one third of those asked (31.2 percent) were hoping for clothing, and about one fifth a book (19.7 percent) or perfume (19.2 percent). Jewels, watches, cosmetics, money, shoes, and leather accessories also appeared on their Christmas wish lists.

About one half (51.4 percent) of those asked were planning to buy clothes as presents, about 40.9 percent books, and 37.8 percent cosmetics. Over a third (34.2 percent) said they would be buying toys.

More than half said they would leave Christmas shopping until December. SITA
