When it comes to buying Christmas gifts, men are notorious for the speed at which they can complete the task – but it might come as a bit of a surprise to you just how fast some can actually get it all done.
According to a festive survey from retailer QVC, one in four men say they can get it all done in a single hour, with the majority only setting aside one day to buy all their presents. But that’s not all – three per cent claim that they can actually finish Christmas shopping in under ten minutes.
Women, on the other hand, dedicate a lot more time to the job, with just 12 per cent saying they would be able to finish shopping in an hour. In all, 30 per cent said that it took between three and five hours, and 35 per cent stated that they could get it all done in between one and three hours.
Of course, there are plenty of others out there who start planning for the festive season months in advance and make lists of presents for people of things they think they’d like ages before December arrives. When it comes to looking for handmade pressies, the more time you can spend the better so you can find that perfect gift for someone special.
Why not use the internet to help? You could set up a secret board on Pinterest and pin all the possible presents you find so that you don’t have to remember what website you found them on later. They’ll be right there waiting for you when you’re ready to spend some money.
