Believe it or not, but the holiday season is upon us. Television commercials are all about advertising the hottest gift ideas and blowout sale prices, but we're wondering if it even matters? When it comes to gifting, is it really all about the price?
How Much Do You Spend on Holiday Gifts?
We asked the GAG Community just how much they're planning on spending on holiday gifts for their significant others, and over 1300 votes rolled in. The results? Well, apparently, the holidays are the perfect time to be thrifty.
Girls Are Cheap!
The majority of girls polled said that they're planning on spending less than $100 on holiday gifts for their significant others. So much for that PS4, guys!
On the other hand, guys said that they're most likely to spend between $100 and $300 on gifts for their partner. Ladies, keep that in mind as you're creating your holiday wish list!
The Results Are In...
Reasons for the Decline
Whether it's the bad economy or the trend of taking the DIY route for holiday gifting, there's no denying the decline in the amount girls are spending on holiday gifts for their mates.
Another theory suggests that many couples are on the verge of breaking up right before the holidays, but stick together to avoid being lonely during this time of year. Perhaps this is the motivation behind all of those cheap gifts? After all, why spend a pretty penny on someone you're planning on dumping in a few weeks? Makes sense to us.
What's On Your List?
Are any high-dollar items on your holiday wish list this year? If so, do you think you'll get them? Guys, maybe with a little sweet talking you'll be able to convince your girl to spring for something special. If not, well... you better start saving up!
What Do You Think?
Ladies, are you a "cheap" gifter, or do you spend more than the majority of girls on holiday gifts for your guy? Same question for you too, guys: do you align with the majority of the voters and typically spend between $100 and $300 on gifts for your girl?
Most Helpful Opinions
i don't really have anything on my list for my boyfriend. he just kinda goes out and buys cute little things that i would like haha. i'd feel bad asking him for things, to be honest. but, i'm kind of a cheap gifter. i don't have a job, but i do get amazon gift cards through doing surveys. so thats how i buy all my christmas/birthday gifts for people. i try to spend around $50 for my boyfriend. i also surprise him with random little gifts throughout the year. if i didn't do that, i could probably spend a little more on him. he's a simple man anyway. he doesn't want a lot of expensive gifts, so it works both ways!
