Recently, tradespeople have been named the most generous workers when it comes to giving Secret Santa gifts!

According to research by Wonga, builders, electricians and plumbers were found to be the most generous professions, spending the most money on their colleagues. Specifically, it was found that on average, more than 1 in 5 tradespeople spend between £21 and £25 on their fellow workers. In comparison to this, the national average for Secret Santa presents is just £13.

But what do you get a tradesperson? They can, at times, be hard to buy for! New tools? New work gear? A joke present? Take a look at the best, (and worst) presents you can get a tradesperson here.

On the other end of the scale though, spending £5 or less on their workmates was teachers. Along with them, those in sales and retail also scrimped on how much they spent on their colleagues.

In terms of the overall festivities at work though, the trades were found to be the most generous once again. In fact, 19% would spend between £76 and £100! Splashing out on things such as Christmas parties, decorations, treats, gifts and lunches.

Despite this though, lawyers were found to have the most parties and festive events. Some even had five different events to attend! Alongside this, it was also found that women attended more Christmas events than men.

So what do you think of this? Do you splash the cash on your workmates? Let us know in the comments below.
