Poll: What's your preferred approach to buying Christmas presents?
Do you like to buy friends something similar to what they have, or something completely different?


It’s so easy to go overboard and buy too much in a panic, or accidentally leave someone out. There is also so much stuff out there, so it can be hard to choose something. Do you go for the trendy-but-awkward lamp, the tracksuit top to match the bottoms they already have – or keep it simple and batch buy generic gifts?

So, with just five days to go before Christmas Eve, we’re asking you: in general, what’s your preferred approach to buying Christmas presents?

Poll Results:

Similar to what they have (2850)
I need to be told what to get (2696)
I don't know, really (2142)
Different from what they have (1778)
Bath sets for all (364)
