A candlelit dinner.
A fancy restaurant with white tablecloths.
A dozen red roses, harp music, and an enormous box of chocolates.
To many people, this is Valentine’s Day.
To some, Valentine’s Day is the ultimate expression of love, and the statistics prove it. About 54% of Americans celebrate, according to ABC News. But these celebrations don’t come cheap: Valentine’s Day spending topped $18 billion in 2018, which averages out to about $136 per person.
So, what exactly are people spending money on? Studies show the top picks are flowers, jewelry (which rakes in about $4 billion each year alone), chocolate, and activities or reservations.
Sounds pretty romantic. But if that’s not your scene, don’t worry. Shop Your Way makes it very easy to do Valentine’s Day your way.
