New research shows how gifting will be affected by Cost of Living crisis

8 in 10 Brits (80%) are worried about how they will afford the festive season this year, with a third (32%) either very or extremely worried.

Research conducted by Engravers Guild, the personalised gifts retailer, paints a bleak picture for the Christmas season, with many having to look for new ways to try and find the festive cheer.

Despite soaring inflation, 79% plan to spend no more on Christmas gifts this year with over a third (35%) even planning to cut back. Moreover, only very few (15%) think that they will actually spend more on Christmas gifts compared to last year.

The news does not bode well for the High Street. With footfall last year stricken by the pandemic, over three quarters (76%) still do not anticipate spending any more this time round on the High Street. In fact, 1 in 8 (12%) even plans to spend ‘significantly less’ than 2021.

This comes as more than one in four (27%) say they will give fewer gifts this year than last. 7% of people even plan to give no Christmas gifts at all, and a quarter (25%) are agreeing with friends and family not to exchange any gifts.

One reason for people being more thrifty with their gifting may be to compensate for higher food prices. About 3 in 10 (29%) are budgeting to spend more on groceries this year compared to last. That notwithstanding, though, despite getting much less for their money now, more than a quarter (27%) still plan to spend even less than 12 months ago on groceries.

To make ends meet, Brits are having to go to new lengths this Christmas. Almost 1 in 5 (17%) are forgoing on heating to fund the buying of Christmas gifts. Meanwhile, 7% report to be skipping meals to help finance their Christmas presents.

Elliot Bishton, the founder of Engravers Guild, said:

“It’s looking like it will be a different kind of Christmas this year, with value for money being foremost on people’s minds. However, that doesn’t mean it needs to be less special and we’re seeing a greater emphasis on thoughtful gifting.

“Many people are planning to give self-made and second-hand gifts this year. And, for those who will be buying gifts, over a quarter are agreeing price limits with friends and family. While people may have to be more thrifty, being creative can actually help the gifts mean more.”



The research was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Engravers Guild, surveying 2,000 UK adults who celebrate Christmas. The survey was carried out [TBC]

Kim Kardashian joins the personalised trend

We recently noticed that Kim Kardashian and her fiancé, Travis Barker, have joined the personalised trend with their own engraved champagne flutes showing the date that they became engaged.  They were spotted welcoming in the new year by sharing a toast to 2022 with the red personalised flutes.

The pair are known to enjoy wearing matching items, even seen sporting matching red leopard print silk pyjamas at Christmas and skeleton onesies at Halloween.

Kim and Travis are now planning their wedding and, although reported to be a small and intimate affair, it seems certain to involve personalised elements, right through from the hen and stag parties to the honeymoon.

Personalised items are always popular at weddings and allow the special couple to show their love and thanks to those that have helped them along the way. Items with a message become treasured keepsakes of a special day, creating memories to look back on in future years. From pocket watches, cufflinks or hip flasks for the groomsmen, to personalised bracelets, necklaces and lockets for the bride and her attendants, there’s a style and design to suit everyone.

At Engravers Guild we’re always on the lookout for new and exciting personalised products and will soon be launching our own range of personalised glass ware. Why not keep up with the Kardashian’s and personalise your own pair of champagne flutes to celebrate a special occasion. Keep an eye on our website for this exciting new range!
