Guys are most likely to get the hoof as 33% of women will re-evaluate their relationship if they’re disappointed with their gift and a jaw dropping 63% of 18-24 year-olds admit they would finish with their partner over a bad Christmas gift.

According to a study by jeweller F.Hinds:-

  • 1 in 4 Brits would consider dumping their partner after receiving an unwanted Christmas gift
  • 33% of women re-evaluate their relationship if they’re not happy with their gift and would put presents before partners.
  • A whopping 63% of 18-24 year olds admit they would finish with a partner over a bad Christmas gift

How long would you expect to be with your partner before you splash the cash on him/her?  Apparently 43% of men are more likely to buy a Christmas present after just ONE month of dating compared to just 29% of women.

£50 is around the normal amount we Brits spend on a present but according to this research 1 in 10 of us will splash out on a whopping £500 on gifts after just one month of being together.

As we Brits continue to put presents before partners, finding the perfect gift can add to the stress of ‘getting it right’ or finding ourselves ‘kicked to the kerb’ when we get it wrong. Hopefully the top Christmas presents shown below will help us get it right.

Surprisingly, 6% of Brits would simply give cash to their partner for their first Christmas together.

Does your significant other splash out on gifts at Christmas?  Perhaps they’re one of many who give money instead of gifts, or do they simply leave their shopping too late and just grab what they can find?
