Before you blow a wad of cash on fancy chocolates or flowers, consider the fact that your partner might not really want that sampler full of assorted truffles or dozen roses for Valentine’s Day — or even a romantic dinner, for that matter. According to a survey from CreditDonkey.com, a credit card comparison website, you might want to purchase a new iPad Mini or weekend getaway for your sweetie instead.
Here’s what the website found:
• 65% plan to give dinner, only 49% want to receive dinner.
• 38% plan to give chocolates, only 30% want to receive chocolates.
• 37% plan to give flowers, only 20% want to receive flowers.
• 8% plan to give gift cards, 15% want to receive gift cards.
• 7% plan to give electronics, 20% want to receive electronics.
• 5% plan to give travel, 9% want to receive travel.
The takeaway: To use a cliché, think outside the box and remember that even if your gift doesn’t meet Hallmark’s expectations, it might be just the ticket for your significant other. Now that’s romantic.
