Wondering what to get your significant other for Valentine’s Day? Of 1,000 surveyed, roses are still the top Valentine’s Day gift, followed by sunglasses, teddy bears, chocolate, and chocolate diamond rings. But… forget alcohol and gift cards. The survey said they’re the least favorite Valentine’s gifts . While shopping early can help you snag the best deals, 20% said they wait until the week of Valentine’s to buy their gifts. To celebrate the holiday, 29% said they will be going out to dinner, followed by spending the night in (16%). When it comes to favorite treats, a box of chocolates at 40% and chocolate covered strawberries at 20% were preferred. Roses still steal the show with 63% with roses their favorite flower. But for a more unique gift , try tulips at 10% of respondents or orchids just behind. Another interesting tidbit from the survey: people are wishy-washy about first dates on Valentine’s Day. Slightly over half say a Valentine’s first date is OK.
Note: The same survey also found that nine out of 10 feel pressure if they’re not in a relationship on Valentine’s Day. However, they are not willing to go out of their way to find a date. Only 7% of respondents would use a dating app to find a date for V-Day.
