Britain’s Present Shopping Habits

Of all our friends and neighbours in Europe and the USA, British adults spend the most on presents for their family and friends. Unsurprisingly, more than 50% of this annual gift-grab happens just before Christmas, although almost a quarter start their stocking-filling as early as October.

And we all know that one person who waits until the January sales, right? Well, it turns out there’s a reason for that: they are 5% of the population.

The Toy Hunter at what2buy4kids.co.uk has assembled an interesting infographic which offers in-depth insight into our nation’s love of festivities in general. While Christmas and birthdays remain our favourite celebrations, approximately 15% of us delight in rewarding our children for their performance at school and during exams.

I know I do, surprise treats always make a child smile and I do so like to encourage them too. What about you?

So, with such a love of gift-giving, why is it over 6.5 million of us wait until the last minute to buy our presents? Have a little look below.

I would love to hear about your gift buying habits. Do they fit with these? Leave me a comment below, I love to hear from you.  If you are planning on hitting the sales do pop and have a look at my post on how to save money on Black Friday
