We polled over 11,000 of our Shopkick users to find out what they had in the works for the big Day of Love this year. See what we found out below!
Men Know Their Expectations This Year
40% of Men, compared to only 31% of Women, believe it’s “very important” to give a gift this Valentine’s Day. What’s more, they plan on outspending women 2:1. Men have an average of $207.60 earmarked for their significant other, while women are only looking at spending an average of $89.54 on their loved ones. But ladies, you’re off the hook, as over half of men (55%) don’t find it important at all to receive a gift this year.
Moms Still Wanna Have Fun
Over half of respondents (55%) said they are even more excited about Valentine’s Day since becoming a parent. Whether it’s candy, arts & crafts, or valentines for the whole classroom, parents will be rolling their sleeves up, and spending an average of $44.39 to spoil their kids this season.
Hopelessly in Love With You
Overall, over 75% of respondents (including three-quarters of men!) consider themselves “romantic.” While 44% of these self-proclaimed romantics start planning Valentine’s Day a full month out, the remaining 25% of Valentine’s Day scrooges cut it close, with over 50% waiting until the day before or the day-of to start their planning!
