FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With holiday gifting in
full-swing, national off-price home fashions retailer and gifting destination,
HomeGoods, released today the results of its holiday gifting survey.

The First Family to Open Gifts
Opening gifts is a holiday tradition usually filled with lovable and quirky
family members, but it might get a bit more interesting if families inject
some Hollywood – or Washington – into the gathering. According to HomeGoods'
national survey, the Obamas top the list of famous families Americans would
most like to open gifts with this holiday season (40%). That's not all: The
British Royal Family (28%), the Kardashian's (14%), the Beckham's (10%), and
the "Honey Boo Boo" family (9%) also made the celeb gift-opening wish list.

A Political Holiday Season
However, not everyone is on the same page as to which family they want to
unwrap presents with. Older Americans are enchanted by the British Royal
Family – 40% of those ages 55+ would most like to open gifts under the tree
with them, compared to only 14% of those ages 18-24. Young people are more in
tune with the Obamas – 47% ages 18-24 would choose to open gifts with the
First Family, while only 37% of those ages 55+ would do the same.

Shopping for Celebs: Dream or Nightmare?
Buying the perfect holiday gift may have some stumped, but imagine having to
buy a present for someone who really has everything. According to HomeGoods'
survey, 1 in 3 (33%) Americans think shopping for a holiday gift for Oprah
Winfrey would be the most challenging, followed by Simon Cowell (28%), Lady
Gaga (24%), and Johnny Depp (10%). On the other hand, only 5% cited Taylor
Swift as a tricky celeb to buy for.
