Yahoo! New Zealand has been tracking the most-searched products on its Yahoo! New Zealand Deals site and has noticed some dramatic changes this week compared to the same time last month.

"Searches for iPads have shot up by 27% while price comparisons for handbags have risen 18%.

"Interestingly, we've seen a 9% increase in searches for perfume - the exact same amount as tyres, says Yahoo spokesperson Oliver Hill. "We assume all those devoted fathers and husbands out there have got tired of looking for fragrant scents and have gone off in search of the manly smell of rubber instead."
