When it comes to holiday gifts, the difference between genders becomes stark

A new survey of more than 1,000 Americans uncovers the types of gifts both men and women expect to give and receive this holiday season. The survey, by credit card comparison website CreditDonkey.com, found that female respondents plan to reduce their spending on electronics even though the majority of male respondents (81 percent) really want to get gadgets and electronic devices this year.

“When it comes to holiday gifts, the difference between genders becomes stark,” said Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com. “While just 30 percent of the male respondents told us they want to give jewelry this year, over half of the females are hoping they receive jewelry. There will be some serious disappointment this holiday season, unless some gift-givers smarten up before December 25.”
