Christmas is one of the biggest and most exciting days of the year. With the holiday season comes gifts, lavish dinners and parties, and enchanting decorations as far as the eye can see. It’s the season to be jolly, after all!

But all that Christmas cheer can leave our pockets very bare. Did you know that the average British household will spend between £750 and £865 in the run-up to Christmas, and that nationwide we’ll spend nearly £78.7 million? It’s a colossal amount of money, and it’s no surprise that Christmas shopping is often a massive source of stress and anxiety for many unfortunate shoppers. Between choosing presents, shopping for food, and finding the perfect outfit for your office party, it's easy to end up feeling like a bit of a grinch.

So here at The Farthing we wanted to see just where all this cash has been disappearing to. What are we spending on? How do we divide up our Christmas budgets? And is that money well spent?

Take a look at the infographic below to find out all the facts and figures behind Britain’s Christmas gifting woes.
