Austin-based company RetailMeNot says its research found that 64 percent of Americans who are married or in a relationship plan to purchase a gift for their significant others in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Top choices include dinner in a restaurant, chocolates and flowers. Rounding out the list are jewelry and experiences such as trips, concert tickets or a massage.
Seems the longer the relationship lasts, the more bucks a person is willing to shell out. Those who had been dating for two or more years said they planned to spend an average of $106 on the holiday, while those married 10 or more years are prepared to spend $350.
