Christmas is getting pricey for true loves, what with the rising cost of gold and bird feed.
If you were to buy all 364 items listed in the classic holiday carol "The 12 Days of Christmas," it would set you back $107,300.24, according to PNC Wealth Management's Christmas Price Index. That's a 6.1% jump from last year.
While the partridge is roughly the same price as last year, the pear tree is up 11.8% to $189.99. Unfortunately, some of the song's other birds - swans, French hens and turtle doves - are much pricier.
The cost of five gold rings has soared 16.3% from last year, because it "played catch-up with the dramatic rise in gold prices in 2011."
A flat minimum wage means the maids-a-milking - "the only unskilled labourers in the song - will cost the same as last year.
Ladies dancing remain affordable, thanks to unchanged prices from the Pennsylvania Ballet Company.
Musicians, however, are charging more for their services and the cost of hiring 11 pipers piping and 12 drummers drumming is $2,562 and $2,775.50, respectively, both up 5.5%.
To get these prices, you'll have to beat the streets in search of your gifts. The convenience of online shopping will set you back even further.
One of each set of items will cost you $25,431.13 in person, but $40,440 online.
"In general, Internet prices are higher than their non-Internet counterparts because of premium shipping costs for birds and the convenience factor of shopping online," said Jim Dunigan, managing executive of investments for PNC Wealth Management.
