Experts reveal how to avoid embarrassment of buying the wrong gifts this Christmas

Christmas Day is for eating, drinking, watching bad TV - and trying to cover up your embarrassment as you realise your husband's Aunt Maude has spent her pension on your present while you bought her a set of hankies.

在圣诞节那天,人们吃吃喝喝,看看没营养的电视剧——还要试图掩饰因送礼不当产生的尴尬,如你丈夫的麦德阿姨用退休金给你买了贵重礼物,而你却只送了她一套廉价手帕。

Present-buying can be a minefield; from how much to spend, to whether to risk surprising recipients with a gift they don't want, to knowing if you should buy your neighbour you only say hello to a little something.

YOUR PARTNER

给伴侣的礼物

Spend: New romance £20-50; long-term couples £100-£150

花销:新情人20-50英镑;配偶100-150英镑

'If you've just started seeing someone you don't need to spend a fortune,' says dating guru James Preece (www.jamespreece.com).

“如果你刚开始与某人约会,那就没必要给对方买很贵重的礼物。”约会专家詹姆斯·普里斯说(来源:www.jamespreece.com)。

'It's much better to impress them with your imagination by choosing a gift that’s a little bit different. £20 is about the right amount, with a maximum of £50 if you can afford it.'

“发挥想象力,选择与众不同的礼物让他们印象深刻,这个法子更好。至于花销方面,20英镑最佳,如果负担得起,多花一些也无妨,但不要超过50英镑。”

Or you don't even need to go that far, says relationship expert and founder of BeLoveCurious.com, Helen Rice. Plan to spend a romantic evening together or have a fun day out. Feel free to give the person you're dating something thoughtful, just don't spend a lot of money.'

“或者根本没必要想那么多。”人际专家、www.jamespreece.com网站创始人海伦·赖斯(Helen Rice)说。“安排一次浪漫的晚餐或出去开心玩一天。随意送一些花心思的玩意儿给你约会的对象,只是不要花很多钱在上面。”

'If you're in a long-term relationship then your budget really reflects on your personal situation,' adds James. 'You don't need to go crazy, but it's a great opportunity to show you love and appreciate them.

“如果你与对方是长期交往的关系,那么你花钱多少确实会反映出你的个人情况。”詹姆斯补充道。“虽然没必要疯狂行事,但这是向他们表达你的爱与感恩的好机会。”

'It's also best to buy a few cheaper presents rather than one big one. Part of the fun is the mystery and unwrapping, so it will last longer if you give them several to enjoy.'

“买几样便宜些的礼物好过等额买一样贵的。收到礼物的乐趣部分来源于礼物的神秘感和拆礼物,所以如果你送他们好几个小礼物,那份乐趣会更绵长。”
