THE CHRISTMAS FINANCE REPORT 2014 - MONEYMOOD SURVEY.

01 December 2014

MEN EXPECTING TO SPEND MORE ON CHRISTMAS PRESENTS OUTNUMBER WOMEN FOR THE FIRST TIME ACCORDING TO LEGAL & GENERAL MONEYMOOD SURVEY.

Good news for Santa this Xmas…

The latest MoneyMood Survey from Legal & General shows an increase, for the third year in a row; in the number of households who say they expect to spend the same or more on Christmas presents this year.

Seven in 10 households (70%) expect to spend the same or increase the amount they spend on presents, the highest level since we began monitoring Xmas expectations in 2010.

This year a higher percentage of men (19%) than women (15%) say they’re thinking of spending more than last year on presents over the festive period. This is a reversal of the trend over the last four years where women have outnumbered men over spending more at Xmas.

The number of households saying they will spend less on Christmas presents (25%) has fallen to its lowest level in 5 years.
