Festive Feels: How identity impacts the way we celebrate the festive season.
A 2021 global consumer insights report by Klarna.
Behind every opened present, there’s a different person who purchased it.
At Klarna, we build products for every shopper. And to provide our shoppers with a smoooth experience, we have to get to know them. So this year we commissioned a study to see how people around the world actually feel about the festive season.
Our results identified 5 distinct holiday personas, along with some thought-provoking insights into the beliefs and behaviours shared among groups.
How are shopping behaviours informed by specific attributes of our identity? We surveyed over 18,000 people in 18 countries, and here are some of the interesting things we found:
