Christmas hampers may appeal to present buyers
Published on 14/09/2011

Christmas hampers may be perfect for Britons looking for affordable gifts for their partners this year.

Research by Santander has revealed many people are cutting back, with financial worries resulting in a reduction in spend on presents.

Someone in a relationship will typically spend £1,103 on gifts each year, but the bank's survey indicated this is falling to £879.

Rising livings costs and other economic concerns appear to be behind the trend, but Christmas hampers could represent an ideal way to treat a loved one to a luxurious gift at an affordable price.

And those involved in a relationship can expect to receive more during the festive season than on their birthday, as the study showed an average of £88 is spent on partners at Christmas, compared to £60 on birthdays.

Earlier this week, Retail Jeweller reported a QVC report indicated men are very reluctant to buy their girlfriends jewellery - with could make food gifts an enticing option.
