#SavetheStocking- Why Should Kids Get All The Fun?

Christmas is just around the corner and Wish is here to help curate the perfect stocking selection - for everyone in the family, not just the kids! 

In the UK among young adults, some do and don’t receive a stocking during Christmas. Only half receive a stocking today, despite the fact that more than two thirds would like to bring this holiday tradition back. 

Moreover, age, gender and relationship status all play a significant role in determining the likelihood of receiving a stocking: 

  • ‘Being too old’ is cited as the primary reason to stop giving stockings, despite half of all respondents saying they would prefer to receive presents in a stocking

  • Data shows you are 12% more likely to receive a stocking if you’re in a relationship

  • Of the young adult population, men aged between 18 and 24 are the most likely to receive a stocking and females aged 31 to 35 the least

  • Most (59%) spend between £6-20 on stocking presents for adults, with confectionary, toiletries and cosmetics topping the list of popular items to give 

After all, without the stocking, where on earth would we place our slightly excessive collection of mini prezzies?! 

To make the selection process easier for you, we’ve picked out nine of the cheapest and quirkiest presents to help you join the "Save the Stocking" revolution.
