After the atypical 2020 holiday season, where purchases were made online, in-person shopping has returned with 2021. In fact, customers have the option of capitalizing on the best of both the worlds.

"It's going to be a hybrid holiday this year, blending the return of a celebratory feeling with the now normalized pandemic lifestyle," according to Marshal Cohen, chief retail industry advisor for market research for NPD.

Record Holiday Season Predicted: Market analysts are bracing for a record holiday season. The National Retail Federation estimated that the holiday sales during November and December will likely increase between 8.5%-10.5% year-over-year to $843.4 billion-$859 billion. This excludes spending at auto dealerships, gas stations and restaurants.

NPD expects people, on average, to spend $875 on holiday gifts.
