Slovaks plan to buy Christmas gifts for their relatives and loved ones amounting to €166.20 on average, according to a survey carried out by the TNS SK agency published on December 15 and reported by the TASR newswire.

The results indicate that Slovaks plan to spend roughly the same sum of money as in Christmas 2008. According to the survey, people with university education intend to spend most – €240.65 on average.

Slovak households also plan to spend approximately €138.58 on food, €20.59 on non-alcoholic beverages and €22.06 on alcohol - roughly the same amount of money as last year.

The survey attempted to ascertain whether the global economic crisis will have any impact on the pre-Christmas shopping of Slovaks. Nearly half of the people (47.2 percent of the population) will feel the impact of the crisis on their pre-Christmas shopping. However, the same number of respondents (47.5 percent) said that the crisis will have no effect and 5.4 percent couldn't decide. TASR
