(Relaxnews) – Good news for singletons: an online survey claims that for most people, shopping for their significant other’s gift is the most arduous task on the holiday list.

According to a recent survey of 1,000 adults, both men and women describe their significant other as the hardest person to buy a gift for during the holidays, regardless of whether or not the couple has children. Also, the higher income a couple has, the harder it is to purchase a gift for their partner. The survey was funded by Ebates.com, an online shopping site offering cash-back rewards and discounts.

The survey also revealed that one third of Americans “re-gift” during the holidays, with 39 percent saying that they’ve re-gifted a gift from someone else. Top items for re-gifting include home décor, gift cards, wine or champagne, books, and perfumes and colognes.

Half of the participants also said that they plan on having a backup gift on hand just in case someone gives them an unexpected holiday present.
