With pumpkin-flavored everything creeping onto shelves and the seasons shifting, how are consumers thinking about the fast approaching holiday season? We turned to the Kiip network to find out.
We’ve Got Company
The majority of respondents (54%) reported plans to host family or friends over the holidays. This means busting out the air mattress, multiple trips to the grocery store, holiday cookies and hiding out in the bathroom from your in-laws. I love my in-laws, but not everyone is so lucky.
With the surge in household activity that comes with the holidays, consumers are looking for anything to help get them through this hectic time. Enter CPG brands, the unsung heroes of the holidays. CPG brands should tailor messaging highlighting how they help make the holidays as smooth as butter.
