Yesterday’s report on gift preferences was the inspiration for this week’s study. Are some types of gifts simply inappropriate? If it seems clear that not much thought went into a particular gift, does that make it less “special”?
Or does the simple fact that a gift was given make up for any faux pas on the part of the gift-giver? And can we find any relationship between the type of person receiving a gift and what sort of gifts they find appropriate.
As usual, the study is brief, with just 5 questions, so it should only take a minute of your time. You have until 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, December 19 to participate — or until we have 500 responses, whichever comes first (note: this is one day less than usual, due to our holiday travel plans). Then don’t forget to come back next Friday for our analysis of the results!
Do you have any comments on this week’s study? Any other opinions on gift-giving and receiving that the study failed to address? Just want to complain about the lousy gifts you got last year? Now’s your chance — let us know in the comments.
