Figures from the British Retail Consortium show how online sales in different types of goods fared:
- Online clothing sales accounted for 21.2% of sales in December - an increase of 3% from last year.
- Furniture and flooring products bought online represented nearly a third of all sales.
- Electrical goods and toys came in at 14.4%, a fall from November's 15.5%.
The drop in electrical goods sales was attributed to consumers searching early on the web for in-demand Christmas products to get hold of them before they went out of stock.
