Americans are feeling more like the Grinch every year when it comes to buying Christmas gifts, according to a new survey.

The survey says 47 percent of Americans feel obligated to buy gifts for someone they wish they didn't have to.

Men are two-times more likely to buy gifts for their significant other.

Forty-seven percent of Americans go shopping without having specific products in mind beforehand.

Fifty-eight percent say shopping overall makes them anxious because they won't have enough money.
