Valentine's Day: Most-Wanted Gifts
Survey Question: Which do you consider the best Valentine's Day gift?
The results of this question might surprise you a bit. Historically, chocolate, roses, and jewelry were all standard Valentine's Day gifts and the go-to for a significant other who forgot what day it was. However, this survey shows that putting a bit more thought into your gift and finding something that has special meaning in your relationship is actually much more desirable.
But, to put things into perspective, the average amount spent on Valentine's Day in 2018 was just over $140/person. This was about a $7 increase from the year before. And, although jewelry and diamonds were the least desired in our results, Americans still spent $4.7 billion on them last year, followed by an evening out and flowers. [Source]
The takeaway? It looks like just a card, just won't do.
