Cellos will be popular this Christmas
This year is likely to see musical instruments such as cellos leap in popularity as Christmas gifts in the US, which could give rise to the same trend in the UK.

Research published by National Association of Music Merchants has found that one in three prefer to give meaningful, life-enriching presents as gifts, with instruments being a popular choice.

It also found that nearly three-fifths of people regret never having learned to play a musical instrument.

Robin Lewis, chief executive of the Robin Report and a retail expert, has highlighted the fact that experiences need to be compelling enough to drag customers away from their PCs.
