Most People Would Prefer Sentimental Gift Than An Expensive One

If you’re worried you can’t afford to get your loved ones a great gift this holiday season, you may not have to worry as much as you think. Apparently how expensive a gift is isn’t the most important thing for a lot of people.

A new survey finds…

62% of people would rather get a gift from the heart, or one that feels more personal, than one that’s expensive.

In fact, “heartfelt” and “personalized” gifts are more desired than almost any other type of gift.

Twice as many people say they would rather get a heartfelt gift than one that’s generic and worth $100.

Plus, 66% of folks say they would remember a heartfelt or personalized gift more than something store-bought and generic.

55% of people say they keep personalized gifts much longer than regular store bought ones.

The average person would keep a personalized gift for at least a year or more, with 40% keeping them forever

So, what type of personalized or heartfelt gifts would folks like to receive? Well, the top choices include:

Handwritten note


Custom mug/cup
