What makes people happier - material or experiential purchases?

It depends on the resources people have available.

“Individuals of higher social class, whose abundant resources make it possible to focus on self-development and self-expression, were made happier by experiential over material purchases… lower-class individuals were made happier from material purchases or were equally happy from experiential and material purchases.”
