Valentine’s Day Spending

Valetine's Day Heart

Men, with Valentine’s Day just one week away, now would be an excellent time to have a talk with your significant other about trying something different this year.

Perhaps you could suggest staying home and having a romantic evening alone, just the two of you. Maybe a candle light dinner prepared by you, a little Yanni and a chick flick? My God, what am I saying! Bad idea!

Okay, give this a shot; try taking a page out of the Beatles playbook by saying, “All you need is love.” Forget the expensive dinner, the flowers, the jewelry, candy, etc.  You don’t need some commercialized holiday to express your love for each other. Let’s just eat some takeout and watch that episode of the “Walking Dead” you have on DVR. Yeah, like that’s gonna fly!

Face it, you will probably be forced to go out for a night on the town. But beware, it’s going to cost you.

According to a new study the average person spent $131 on Valentine’s Day last year. And men spent almost twice as much as women!

If you’re like most guys, you plan on buying flowers for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. 32% of men are on board with that plan. Another 26% will buy candy or chocolates. 13% are going the jewelry route, 9% will buy some slinky lingerie and 6% will say I Love You with a gift basket.

One thing most all of us have in common at this point, we haven’t bought anything yet. Last year, Valentine’s Day spending peaked on February 13th.
