A new survey found our significant other is the hardest person to buy presents for around the holidays. And dad is second.
We spend the most amount of TIME searching for the perfect gift for our kids though. And the person we spend the least amount of time on is . . . our boss.
Here are all the people you might be buying gifts for this year, and the average amount of time we spend shopping for them . . .
1. Your kids . . . 2 hours and 57 minutes. That includes any time you spend searching online, walking around the mall, or both.
2. Your significant other . . . 2 hours and 44 minutes.
3. Your mom . . . 1 hour and 47 minutes.
4. Your dad . . . 1 hour and 28 minutes. So, 19 minutes less than Mom.
5. Your best friend . . . 1 hour and 13 minutes.
6. Your sister . . . 1 hour and 12 minutes.
7. Your in-laws . . . 1 hour and 3 minutes.
8. Your brother . . . 58 minutes.
9. A niece or nephew . . . 58 minutes.
10. Grandma . . . 49 minutes.
11. Grandpa . . . 45 minutes.
12. A godchild . . . 42 minutes.
13. A cousin . . . 40 minutes.
14. An aunt or uncle . . . just under 40 minutes.
15. One of your kid’s friends . . . 39 minutes.
16. A godparent . . . 34 minutes.
17. Your boss . . . just 32 minutes.
Over a third of us think we can tell right away if someone doesn’t like a present. And kids are the most honest when they don’t like something.
30% of us think we’re good at faking it when WE don’t like a gift. That includes 40% of women and 25% of men.
And finally, over a third of us have re-gifted something we didn’t want . . . and the worst gift-givers are our IN-LAWS. We’re more likely to re-gift stuff we get from them than anyone else.
