Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and with it comes a difficult question. What should you buy for your significant other? The easy answer would be flowers and chocolate. Every year, 250 million roses are produced for the holiday in America alone. Also, 1.7 billion dollars are spent on Valentine’s chocolate and candy every year.

    Those are not the only answers to the question. Perhaps a dinner or vacation for two might do. Usually, these dates are at French, Italian, or Sushi restaurants, but they can also be a fancy dinner at home. As for the vacation, a trip to Hawaii, California, or Florida are popular states to visit on Valentine’s Day. If a foreign country strikes your fancy, Lisbon, France, and Spain are also popular. However, jewelry is the most popular of the gift items given on this holiday. 20 percent of consumers buy jewelry on Valentine’s Day, spending more than 4 billion dollars in the process.

    What you purchase really depends on who you buy for, but these are the easiest and most popular gifts available. Whatever you choose to get them, just remember; Valentine’s comes once a year. Your gift better be as special as they are.
