Having trouble thinking of good gift ideas this Christmas season?
How about ‘12 drummers drumming’..? Maybe ten lords-a-leaping? Or perhaps ‘2 turtle doves’..?
Okay, you get the point.
Turns out if you buy that special someone all 364 gifts from the “12 Days of Christmas,” you’d be ponying up six figures.

“The whole thing will set you back $107,300 this year. That is a 6% jump from last year. But there are some bargains. Eight maids a milking still just $58 because the minimum wage hasn’t gone up.”

PNC Wealth Management released its annual “12 Days of Christmas” Price Index Monday.

The Los Angeles Times breaks it all down saying, “a gradually improving economy might be getting more people in the party spirit, boosting demand for musicians. Eleven pipers piping now cost $2,562 and 12 drummers drumming run $2,775.50 -- both up 5.5%.”

But it’s not the musicians that cost the most, not even the five golden rings.
This year’s most expensive gifts were our feathered friends.

--Seven swans-a-swimming are the most expensive gift at $7,000.
--Six geese-a-laying will cost $210, up 30% from last year.
--But a partridge in a pear tree is slightly more affordable, at only $15.

The Associated Press says, don’t expect good deals on these birds on Cyber Monday -- shipping live birds will cost you a pretty penny.
