“With the current economic climate, the last thing men want to do on Valentine’s Day is spend too much money on unwanted gifts, especially if they don’t particularly like the occasion!”

Valentine’s Day is often blamed for being a commercial and money making invention but have you ever thought of it as a sophisticated tactic women invented to force men to splash on them?

According to a survey conducted by voucher website http://www.voucherKing.co.uk, the majority of British men fall in the Valentine’s Day trap every year and end up spending tons of cash on their ladies despite hating the occasion.

The survey also reveals that the ladies from up north are luckier than southerners with men in Northern England intending to spend slightly more than men in the South.

The big question remains, is all that money worth it? Sorry lads but with more than 1 in 3 women declaring they were unhappy with last year’s Valentine’s Day present, it seems that all that cash is being wasted on unwanted gifts.

Not buying at all may sound like a safer and more economical option but with 40 % of the ladies declaring they are expecting a gift for Valentine’s Day it’s probably not worth the risk!

“With the current economic climate, the last thing men want to do on Valentine’s Day is spend too much money on unwanted gifts, especially if they don’t particularly like the occasion!” commented Robert Berrisford, founder of VoucherKing.co.uk. “Our approach at VoucherKing is to bring new vouchers, the best bargains and discounts to UK customers and help them to blow their Valentine’s mind away, not their budget! We’ve just compiled a ‘Top 5 best Valentine’s Day presents and hope it will help British men to get it right without wasting their cash!”
