Whether it’s a jar of jam or chutney, a book or something crafty, research revealed 9 out of 10 of us say the most important part of a gift is the time and effort that goes into it, as opposed to the cost.
Corrine Sweet, Author and Psychologist, said: “Nothing stays in the memory and mind more than important experiences and beautiful images – especially when they celebrate our hobbies. Something personalised means ‘I know you and want to make you smile’ and a custom-made map reflects good times in your life.”
Recently, we put together a survey to look at Great Britain’s Christmas gift buying habits.
Gift giving plays a big part in Christmas celebrations, and the findings reveal we spend months thinking about what presents to buy as well as a lot of effort trying to find the perfect gift.
Finding the perfect gift doesn’t always go smoothly though, as a whopping 81 per cent of us have at some point received a rubbish Christmas pressie. That’s an awful lot of feigned gratitude on December 25th.
