Glaswegians are last minute Christmas shoppers, study finds
Published on 29/11/2012

A new poll has revealed people in Glasgow are the most likely in Britain to leave their Christmas shopping until the last minute.

According to the Evening Times, 86 per cent of the city's residents wait until the week before December 25th to purchase all of their gifts.

A UK-wide survey found the most organised city is Cardiff, where just 36 per cent shop at the last minute.

Manchester came second (40 per cent), followed by Belfast (42 per cent) and London (46 per cent).

The study also looked at how much individuals spend on their family and friends, with all of those who took part in the research claiming they spend at least £200 more than they intend to.

However, it seems very few people enjoy the process of buying gifts for loved ones, with 85 per cent revealing they feel stressed or irritated by the products in-store.

To avoid the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, Brits may want to consider going online and ordering gift hampers that can be directly delivered to a recipient's door.
