SEOUL, May 4 (Korea Bizwire) — ‘Cash’ was the most wanted gift both to receive and give on Parents’ Day (May 8), a survey showed Monday.
TMON Inc., a major e-commerce operator, conducted a survey of 700 customers, 60 percent of whom picked hard cash as the most desirable gift on Parents’ Day, while another 64 percent also wanted to give cash as a gift.
Gift-giving preferences differed by age groups. While more than 60 percent of those in their 30s to 50s wanted to give cash as a gift, more than 60 percent of those in their teens and 20s chose health supplements or other non-cash goods as gifts.
Half of the respondents were willing to spend between 100,000-200,000 won (US$89-178) to buy gifts for their parents.
At 70 percent, more than two thirds of the respondents said they wanted to buy their gifts at an online shopping mall, while 78 percent said they would deliver the gifts themselves, without resorting to delivery or other services.
