If you’re worried you can’t afford to get your loved ones a great gift this holiday season, you may not have to worry as much as you think. Apparently how expensive a gift isn’t the most important thing for a lot of people.

A new survey finds…

  • 62% of people would rather get a gift from the heart, or one that feels more personal, than one that’s expensive.
  • In fact, “heartfelt” and “personalized” gifts are more desired than almost any other type of gift.
  • Twice as many people say they would rather get a heartfelt gift than one that’s generic and worth $100.
