 Christmas Gifts for Women are Worth 50 Percent More Than Men

A new study has said that women have nearly 50 per cent more money spent on them for Christmas gifts than men do.

The study commissioned by Me to You also revealed that one in ten couples would argue over disappointing gifts this year.

The researchers found men expect their other halves to spend around 144 pounds on their gifts but will only actually receive presents worth just 99 pounds.

But women will have almost 150 pounds splashed out on them by their other half as they embrace the season of goodwill, despite only anticipating a spend of up to 114 pounds.

"Married couples of course have certain expectations when it comes to receiving presents from each other," the Daily Mail quoted Caroline Weaver of Me to You as saying.

"But at the end of the day, it is great to see that as the old saying goes it really is the thought that counts when it comes to gift buying," she stated.

It also emerged more than one in 20 men claim they would consider leaving their missus if she fails to deliver the goods.

Luckily, 41 per cent of couples said they weren't too worried about the amount spent on presents as long as they were thoughtful.

While the survey shows couples like the idea of their partner spending a decent amount of money on them, thoughtfulness is the most important thing for 38 per cent of people.

When it comes to present buying, 10 per cent want something BIG, while 11 per cent want something "expensive".

Four in ten people would like a present that shows their partner knows them inside out, while 36 per cent want proof that their partner cares.
