Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 11, 2010
Whether Americans like to admit it or not, we all have a bit of the hopeless romantic in our hearts. With love in the air, Americans find it irresistible to flaunt their affection. Jim Trippon, CPA one of America's foremost authorities on the money habits of self-made millionaires, has released his ultimate world's most expensive Valentine's Day gift list to astonish your significant other this holiday season.
According to the National Retail Federation, Americans are expected to spend an astounding $14.1 billion this Valentine's Day. This year retailers are not only focused on gifts for the loving couples but also gifts for our co-workers, friends and even our furry little companions. That's right Americans are likely to spend 50% more this year on their pets compared to last year.
Overall, consumers are focusing more on quality than quantity. The average American is looking for small thoughtful gifts, but for those of you who are looking to go above and beyond, Houston Financial Advisor Jim Trippon has created an unbelievable list.
