Nearly Half Haven’t Told Spouses The Truth About Their Holiday Spending

A new Quicken survey on how couples deal with holiday spending found that 70% of them agree to holiday spending limits, and those that do are more likely to be happy about the amount their partner spent on them than those who didn’t agree to a holiday spending limit. People who didn’t set limits are twice as likely to wish their spouse had spent more on them. The survey also found that 47% of those who said they set a limit didn’t tell their spouses the truth about how much they ended up spending on gifts. However, most of those lies were by people who spent more than the limit on a gift for their spouse. One in five people admitted to having actually forgotten to get a holiday gift for their spouse. Respondents’ holiday shopping wasn’t all for other people, with 28% saying not only do they buy things for themselves during the holiday season, but they also spend more on themselves than they do on their spouse.
