Although there are no set rules, general guidelines should be set based on who you are buying for. There is a difference between giving your husband or wife a gift or someone that you just recently started dating. People often purchase Valentine’s for their children, other family members, friends and even pets!
If you’ve been dating for less than a month, try to stick with a card or single flower if anything at all. You wouldn’t want to bombard that person with lavish gifts. It could send them running or think it’s too much too soon. Be subtle.
According to this survey only about 55% of Americans celebrate Valentine’s Day. The average spending was $146.84 in 2016. It has slowly crept up year by year. Don’t base your purchase on a specific dollar amount or any statistic for that matter. Be thoughtful and unique. This will stand out to him or her far more.
If you can branch out of the traditional realm of gifts. It may save you money in some regard. Did you know that the price of long stemmed roses rises from $58 to $75 around Valentine’s Day? That’s a 30% markup simply based on the time you purchase.
Since love letters are a great way in any circumstance to express your love, make sure you choose a special card for the one you love or "like". Always choose and write a message that is appropriate for your relationship status and the amount of time you’ve committed to one another.
