With all the stories about passengers attacking flight attendants, this sounds about right: One in four adults think they belong on Santa’s NAUGHTY list this year.
26% of Americans say they’ve been naughty . . . but most still expect to get gifts anyway. Around 80% think they deserve presents. And there’s a pretty good chance they’ll at least get one . . . from THEMSELVES. (???)
74% of Americans say they’ll buy themselves at least one gift this year. And most people think they give themselves the BEST gifts.
76% say they’re the best gift givers when it comes to their own gifts . . . 24% think other people buy better stuff.
That said, only one in four people would rather give people a list of everything they want and NOT be surprised. So just the excitement of not knowing DOES count for something.
Electronics are the #1 surprise gift we hope to get this year . . . and #2 is a gift card. So maybe the safest route is, “Surprise . . . here’s a gift card. Go buy whatever it is you actually want.”
