City women beware men bearing gifts

Have your say

SHEFFIELD ladies are a very suspicious lot, according to a new survey at least.

Researchers carrying out a study for Greggs the Bakers, found more than three quarters of women in Sheffield would be suspicious if their man turned up out of the blue clutching a bouquet of flowers.

Other gifts likely to arouse suspicion, according to the survey, included chocolates, which can indicate they have lied about something and a candlelit dinner, which usually means they need to break some bad news.

Surprising your partner with jewellery is also certain to arouse suspicion with more than 80 per cent of women in Sheffield admitting it would cause them to panic. Graeme Nash, head of customer and marketing at Greggs, said: “You might have the best intentions, but buying your partner a surprise gift can get you in hot water.”
