Reuters with this from an Accenture

Over two-thirds of British adults are planning
to cut back on festive spending this year due to a worsening cost of
living crisis

49% of those
surveyed were looking to cut back on gifts

46% on eating out

35% on both general socialising and food and drink at home

“The fact that shoppers are planning
to spend less on gifts this year reflects just how low the mood feels
in the run up to this Christmas,” Accenture’s retail strategy
and consulting lead Kelly Askew said.
