Lucky you if you have friends or family called Paul or Julie, because research has revealed people with these names to be the UK’s top gift givers. But if you know an Adam or Patricia, don’t hold your breath for any grand gestures as people with these names have been found to be the UK’s worst present buyers!

If you want to make sure your name doesn’t appear on the least generous list, you know what to do!
