According to the article, "Across the U.S., the average man will dish out about $175 for Valentine's Day, while the average woman will spend around $90, according to the National Retail Federation" and that $18.6 billion is the total that will be spent on Valentine's Day in the United States this year.
I cannot imagine spending $90 on anyone for Valentine's Day.
Today I subbed in middle school and by the end of the day, many students had received Valentine's gifts including cards, balloons, stuffed animals, and candy. My daughter did not receive anything today and she is none the worse for it. She was grateful not to have to carry anything home.Belinda
