Men Spend More on Girlfriends Than Mothers

Men Want to Save Money and Spend It on You


If you've ever wondered who really comes first in your boyfriend's book, you or his mom, Maxim has the answer. In a co-branded survey with Hornitas tequila, the magazine found that although most men's New Year's resolutions are surprisingly practical (save more money, watch less Jersey Shore), their gift-giving tendencies are not. Almost half of the men surveyed said they planned to spend more than $350 on their girlfriends for Christmas (I guess New Year's resolutions don't start until the new year!), compared to $100 on their mothers' gifts. Maybe because girlfriends still need to be wooed, but moms have that whole unconditional love thing going on?

But don't worry, your boyfriend isn't expecting much in return: not surprisingly, the tequila-sponsored survey found that men want — you guessed it! — tequila for Christmas.

How much do you and your significant other typically spend on each other's Christmas gifts?
