Lets face the girl we love to shop. Its an event for us. Some of us are shopaholics. It can be in different forms, but we all like to spend money.
Each female buyer has his own tasks and you may not like all forms of shopping, but we all like some forms of shopping. We spend time looking at home decorations catalogs.
Some women like shopping malls, some like economy or garage sales. Some of us like the online mall. Im not big at grocery stores, but I like to shop for others and most of all to myself. We like to do it in groups or with a friend.
Im never tired of shopping for myself. And when I do, I do not think Im selfish. The opposite. I feel I deserve it. Now Im not one of those who have a buying problem and can not quit, but theres always a need for something. You only need to know when you can buy yourself or if the greater need is for the household.
Anyway, youre still shopping and you can have as much fun shopping on your sheets or shoes as you would buy beauty products or clothes for yourself. We also like to shop for family pets.
The University of Pennsylvania did a study and found that men buy and women shop. Women tend to browse, collect the best from different sources and enjoy the experience, while men tend to buy, goes straight to kill.
As I have said in my Men Shoppers article, men usually know what they want and go straight to that store to get their three to three things. Women, on the other hand, tend to plan their shopping, decide when, where, with whom and for what. Some of us are attached to shopping so that a gift card or eGift card would be a good modern gift idea.
Sometimes we do not know exactly what we just want we want something new to the kitchen or a wall thats bar. Women like the experience of shopping and pleasure in the enjoyment of the buying process.
Just so you know, theres the handbags power.
According to a study by Phoenix Marketing Consultants, womens consumers account for 83 percent of all consumer purchases. This includes:
92 percent of home furnishings, 92 percent of holiday, 91 percent of all homes, 51 percent of all consumer electronics and 60 percent of all car purchases (they actually affect 90 percent).
The female buyer is an icon for himself. She is the ultimate consumer and is the main goal of retailers and marketers. Todays female buyers are well educated about the product. They will spend more time with consumer reviews and branding cards. Women will also take into account recommendations from friends and family. Women will read product reviews and search for the benefits and disadvantages of a product.
When a couple goes into your store or car dealer, do not think that the woman has no power or maybe not the decision maker.
For the expenses and power of women and money, she checks the checkbook and credit card.
So whats next? Internet purchases and purchases are still and open fields and are constantly growing, but the newest limit is Mobile. When more Apps become available and on the set of QR codes, mobile purchases will be a trend that the female buyer will conquer.
Gift cards are also a remarkably simple gift idea for women.
Think of last minute gift ideas for women can be a stress-inducing proposition. If you find that you are looking for a small-time gift to choose your current, do not worry. There are many gifts that you can choose for the special woman in your life, although there is not much time left before you have to give the gift.
While a gift card may not seem to be the most personal gift, this gift option can be a blessing in a pinch. Instead of shaving your mind and trying to think of womens present ideas, buy each woman on your list a gift card for a store that you know she has a particular affinity for. By carefully choosing your gift card you can make this seemingly simple gift more personal and romantic. For example, if the special someone can not get her day if she does not stop at the local caffeine dealer, give her a gift card to her favorite store, let her not only get that cup of sunshine but it shows her how much you pay attention to who she is.
