A recent survey by Wayfair.co.uk reveals nearly two thirds of Brits will buy a pet a Christmas present this year. Whether it’s their pet or not, 62% of the 1,528 people surveyed, will include their furry friends in the gifting rounds, with the majority of people spending at least £10 – as much as the average secret Santa budget.
“As a nation of animal and pet-lovers, it’s no wonder the majority of us plan on buying a pet a Christmas present this year,” said Simon Cliffe, associate director of merchandising, Wayfair.co.uk.
“Whether it’s a new bed or a scratching post, pet products are hugely popular during the festive season. For many of us, our pets are integral members of the family, they’re our best friends and companions, so treating them with a Christmas gift is our way or showing them we love them.”
