FatWallet.com expects Valentine’s Day shoppers to continue to choose a wider variety of gifts in 2013. Since 2010, the trend for shoppers to purchase tech and clothing items in February leading up to Valentine’s Day has increased by more than 38% on retail sales made through FatWallet. For the same time period, candy and flowers showed a more modest increase in sales at 18%.
