Learn how to set yourself apart from nearly 75% of Valentine’s Day shoppers this year.

It’s no secret that on Valentine’s Day millions of Americans head out to the florists to get that all-important bouquet of fresh roses for their loved one. Usually, it’s men buying flowers for women, due to traditions some might view as dated or old-fashioned.

Flowers Are Far From Original

Flowers are great, don’t get us wrong. So is organic dark chocolate, which is both delicious and decent for you (dark chocolate can potentially help protect you from disease-causing free radicals, cancer, and heart problems). But there are a lot of people thinking the same thing on this special day. To avoid crowds and make sure you stand out it’s important to think outside the box.

Don’t believe us? Read on to learn the statistical breakdown of St. Valentine’s Day.

V Day by the Numbers

According to Statistic Brain, Americans come out and spend over $13,290,000,000 on Valentine’s Day. 180 million greeting cards are exchanged — 85% of which purchased by women. 198 million roses are produced — 73% of all flowers purchased by men.

Candy makes up 47.5% of gifts given on Valentine’s Day, while flowers make up 34.3%, and cards take the lion’s share at 52.1%.

You have to get that special someone something, right? It’s more important than you might think. Over 50% of people say that their partner would end the relationship if they didn’t get something for Valentine’s Day.

That’s a lot of pressure. Plus, to stand out you need to be original.

More and more people are opting for destination Valentine’s Day gifts, or experience gifts, like mini vacations or spa days. If you can pull either of these off, then good for you.
