While your face might have lit up on Christmas morning when you opened the bracelet from Tiffany’s or the Givenchy bag, it could be also sign that your partner is having an affair.
IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, can reveal the Christmas gifts that indicate that your partner might be having an affair.
The site surveyed 300 married men and 300 married women to find out the most popular gifts they bought for their partner this Christmas.
35% of men spoiled their wife with designer jewellery, with 27% hedging their bets on designer clothing.
Spending on designer goods didn’t stop there, with a further 20% spending big on a designer handbag.
The remaining 18% purchased anything ranging from spa days to shoes.
Women, on the other hand, predominantly bought their husbands designer clothing (24%).
20% went down the tech route, with Smart Watches and Smart Speakers such as the Amazon Echo or Google Home proving a popular gift of choice.
16% decided that a way to a man’s heart was through his stomach, and splashed out on expensive liquor, while 13% purchased came to the realisation that a man is nothing without his beard – they spent big on grooming products.
Critically, where both men and women agreed was on the motivations behind their high-end purchases.
A whopping 85% of men and 89% of women stated that they spent lavishly on their partner this Christmas purely out of guilt for their affair.
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:
“As you get older, and as you spend more and more time in the same relationship, Christmas becomes less about the gifts themselves and more about the act of giving.
“That’s why expensive and lavish gifts might not be a cause of celebration as you’d initially think.
“From the experienced adulterer to the first-timer, there’s an element of guilt, however small, that’s absolutely unavoidable.
“One small way to alleviate that guilt is to shower your significant other with material goods that you wouldn’t otherwise buy them.
“Money can’t buy happiness, but maybe it can buy you some peace of mind until you come to terms with your relationship status.”
