International Women's Day 2021: online gifts preferred

(VOVWORLD) -As the COVID-19 pandemic prevention measures are in place, many Vietnamese have opted for online gift buying instead of shopping at physical shops and malls on International Women’s Day this year.  

Easy selection of suitable gifts and convenient and fast payment method, online gift purchase is attracting consumers.

Dinh The Long, Sales Manager of DHC Cosmetics Vietnam, said customers are switching to online shopping. 

“In my opinion, online shopping is developing as customers are provided with detailed information about products. Its’ convenient that customers don't have to come to the showroom,” said Long. 

On International Women’s Day on March 8, fresh flowers and popular gift items serve to attract hordes of customers in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city.
