Luxury Appliances Becoming Hot Holiday Gift Items

Home appliances may become some of the hottest holiday gifts this year, according to a report released by IBM.  The report, based upon 19 years of data, forecasts a four percent jump in appliance sales for December compared to last year. 

Stainless steel kitchen appliances and designer colored washers and dryers seem to be driving the new trend.  Part of the reason may be that stainless is now more affordable than ever.  In the past, stainless appliances were much more expensive, but with those prices falling, the appliances have become much more affordable.

It appears that IBM’s forecast may be correct based upon the numbers from Black Friday.  Appliance Factory Outlet has reported their sales at almost 40% higher than their sales were last year for Black Friday. 

Besides kitchen appliances, laundry room items seem to be highly sought after this year.  With bold, new colors and high quality features, laundry room appliances have become fashionable, hot home décor items.  People no longer feel as if they have to hide them because they don’t match everything else in the house.  

It is expected that holiday sales on home appliances will continue to rise along the same trends that were set from Black Friday sales.
