Hey, it’s the thought that counts. Women spend an average of more than 13 hours searching for the perfect holiday gift for their husbands, while their husbands only spend about four hours shopping for their wives. No wonder nearly 60% of women say they’ve been let down by the gifts they’ve received from their significant others! To prevent disappointment this year, a quarter of women are dropping gift-related hints. For guys who really want to take the easy way out, there’s always the option of letting your lady pick her own gift- a strategy employed by more than 10% of men. So how much poorer can you expect to be after the holidays this year? Here’s a breakdown of how much people typically spend on their friends and family: Mom- $83 Dad- $52 Partner- $80 Sibling- $41 Friends- $20 Grandparents- $26-$37
