And The Most Popular Valentine’s Gift Is . . .
Over the years, you’ve (hopefully) given or received all of the most common Valentine’s Day gifts, even making your gift more personalised by printing on a cup, or t shirt printing, a funny word or logo from a memory. But which gift is the most commonly given?
If you’re having trouble deciding, here’s the most popular Valentine’s gift ideas.
While receiving a beautiful ring can melt your little Valentine’s Day heart, it also can be expensive. The $4 Billion that’s spent on jewelry in February breaks down to $147 per person, on average. That’s the highest amount on the top five, and probably why jewelry only made number five on the list.
Who doesn’t love flowers? Even the simplest bouquet carries a giant message of caring and love. And with the internet, it’s easy. In Australia? FFE Online Flowers will take care of you. America? Great Britain? No matter where you are, some flowers can be on their way with just a few clicks of the mouse. And almost all florists are part of networks that can deliver anywhere in the world.
3. Dinner Out
There’s nothing quite like a romantic candlelight dinner. Add in a glass of wine, a gentle touch, and the stage is set for a very romantic evening. If this is your choice, be sure to give your date a little heads up as to whether it’s going to be a jeans-appropriate night or not. And don’t forget to turn off the phones, so it’s just you and them enjoying the moment.
4. Greeting Cards
Coming in at number two is the Valentine’s greeting card. For those of you who are creatively challenged, it’s a relief to find that someone, somewhere, managed to put into words exactly how you feel. For the thoughtful romantic who’s on a tight budget, a greeting card is perfect.
Candy, or more specifically chocolate, remains the most popular Valentine’s Day gift. If you add a little adventure, like chocolate covered strawberries, you just can’t go wrong. Hint: Go for quality, not quantity. A small but superbly delicious gourmet sampler is going to be more memorable than a giant heart-shaped box full of junky sweets.
Pick your sweetheart, pick your fave gift, and enjoy! Or, are you feeling struck by all of cupids arrows? If that’s the case, then why not splurge on all five!
