WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 17, 2021--

Holiday shoppers can count on America’s sweet tooth! According to a new survey of 2,000 Americans, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of BJ’s Wholesale Club (NYSE: BJ), the most universally accepted holiday gift is chocolate (58%), followed by holiday gift baskets (50%) and gift cards (49%). For two-thirds of respondents, these top three gifts are also easy “go-tos” for the picky people on their lists.

The survey revealed that while most Americans (58%) swear they are easy to shop for during the holiday season, 5 percent admit they are impossible to buy for, mainly because they are extremely picky about what they want. Regardless, the vast majority of Americans (68%) still feel as though the thought behind the gift matters more than the gift itself.

“At BJ’s, you can still find those last-minute gifts for everyone on your list this holiday season,” said, Molly Cox, senior vice president, general merchandise, BJ’s Wholesale Club. “Whether shopping in-club or from the comfort of your couch on BJs.com, we have so many ways to make the holiday gift-giving season easier than ever with all the hottest gifts, and of course, lots of chocolate, holiday gift baskets, and gift cards.”

According to the survey, it seems as though the most useful gift might be a “wish list.” A large majority (70%) of Americans said they request wish lists from other people to make holiday shopping easier. And 49 percent of self-identified impossible giftees prefer giving others a wish list of exactly what they want.

“Holiday shopping doesn’t have to feel stressful or daunting! BJ’s members can rest assured that they’ll still be able to find unbeatable savings throughout the holiday season, with some of the best deals on a wide assortment of holiday gifts,” said Cox, BJ’s Wholesale Club. “We want our members to feel joyful and proud of their gift-giving, knowing they are delivering thoughtful gifts to family and friends, at an amazing value by shopping at BJ’s.”
