There are 257 million red roses sold for Valentine’s Day.
What’s interesting is that 53% of men think women want flowers.
While 37% of women expect to get flowers…
only 4% of women really want them.
(Maybe it’s time to get a little more creative in the gift-giving arena, guys…)
To their credit, men spend more than twice as much on Valentine’s Day as women
(men = $133 million, women = $56 million)
So what do women really want for Valentine’s Day?
55% of women would rather have a nice dinner
(at a restaurant or made at home)
35% crave chocolate
($707 million is spent on candy vs. $23 million for wine)
22% of women hope for jewelry
(14 million got an engagement ring last year!)
Other ways we celebrate Valentine’s Day:
19% of people buy their pets a gift
18% of flowers purchased are for Mom
29% of people send a romantic text message
180 million cards are given
