"While most Americans plan to stick to traditions - 64.5% of male respondents say they’ll take their significant other to dinner, 60.3% will give flowers, and 41.2% will give chocolates - our survey suggests it may be time to consider a less predictable Valentine's Day gift," says Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com.
- While 64.5% of male respondents plan to give dinner, only 54.8% of female respondents want dinner.
- While 60.3% of male respondents plan to give flowers, only 36.9% of female respondents want flowers.
- While 41.2% of male respondents plan to give chocolates, only 34.5% of female respondents want chocolate.
The researchers at CreditDonkey.com suggest instead that guys consider:
- Jewelry: 22.2% of female respondents want to receive jewelry, yet only 18.9% of male respondents plan to give jewelry.
- Gift Cards: 12.6% of female respondents want to receive gift cards, yet only 7.9% of male respondents plan to give gift cards.
- Electronics: 7.1% of female respondents want to receive electronics, yet only 3.7% of male respondents want to give electronics.
