It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, which means shoppers are hitting the stores. You might look to the “The 12 Days of Christmas” for some gift-giving inspiration this year, but be prepared to dip into your wallet: It will cost you $39,094.93 to buy all of the gifts in the classic carol, a boost of $450 from last year. That’s an increase of 1.2% from 2017,according to the 35th PNC Christmas Price Index.

Here’s the entire list for 2018 along with the percentage changes from 2017:

1 Partridge in a Pear Tree: $220.13 (+.1%)

2 Turtledoves: $375.00 (no change)

3 French Hens: $181.50 (no change)

4 Calling Birds: $599.96 (no change)

5 Gold Rings: $750.00 (-9.1%)

6 Geese-a-Laying: $390.00 (+8.3%)

7 Swans-a-Swimming: $13,125.00 (no change)

8 Maids-a-Milking: $58.00 (no change)

9 Ladies Dancing: $7,552.84 (no change)

10 Lords-a-Leaping: $10,000 (+3.0%)

11 Pipers Piping: $2,804.40 (+3.5%)

12 Drummers Drumming: $3,038.10 (+3.5%)

If you bought all of the gifts on the list, it would cost you $39,094.93. If, however, you really wanted to impress your true love by nabbing all 364 items–the number of the items as repeated throughout the song over and over (and over)–you'd have to cough up $170,609.46, or $781.94 more than last year.
