Not only do women buy and wrap the majority of Christmas gifts for family and friends, but some of them even buy their own present for their partner to give them,  according to a survey by department store Debenhams.

The survey of 1,000 shoppers found that men tended to stick to ‘safe’ presents for their partner, such as perfume and lingerie, even though women preferred things like jumpers, coats and slippers.

It also found that women tended to choose presents based on whether they thought people would like them, while men stuck more to a wish list given them by the person they were buying for. 

Debenhams spokesperson Michelle Dowdall said: "In December we see men walking around our stores clutching on to wish lists as if they were winning lottery tickets, whereas women are much more adventurous and find inspiration as they go along."
