Stocking fillers for girls and the evolution of the Christmas gift

How much do people spend on a Christmas stocking these days? We found this fascinating infographic looking at the financial evolution of the Christmas gift and could not resist sharing. A little girl's Christmas stocking holds much more in the 21st Century. The average spend on a child at Christmas has increased from less than half a percent of the monthly  income 100 years ago to 5% of monthly income in 2012.
