Christmas shopping season began earlier than ever this year, and the average budget for 2014 holiday spending is $584, according to a new infographic by digital marketing agency Sq1.

This budget will be more or less an even split between online and offline according to the infographic, with 52% of purchases being made instore and the remaining amount spent via desktop (39%) and mobile (8%).
