People in Edinburgh spend around three times the UK average on “milestone” birthdays, a report has revealed.

Those in the capital celebrating big birthdays of loved ones splash out around £344.11 - compared to £116.14 UK-wide, according to American Express.

The cost combines the value of a present, as well as celebrations such as contributions towards a party or a meal, for 18th, 21st or other special birthdays.

Those in Leeds are the next most likely to splash out on milestone birthdays, spending an average of £153.23.

Jenny Cheung, Director of UK Digital Acquisition at American Express, said: “Celebrating the birthdays of friends and family provide wonderful reasons to spoil loved ones.”
