85% of people in relationships think their partner is lacking in the Valentine's Day department. Most people just don't bother putting in any effort. And I think a lot of men assume that their lady wants the moon served to them on a silver platter and that simply ISN'T TRUE! Here are some great ideas for Valentine's Day, and most of them require minimal effort and/or money. Just a little thoughtfulness will make her day, fellas! Although, these tips work for the ladies as well.
Here are the top 10 things we want for Valentine's Day, and most of them are inexpensive and easy.
1) A nice dinner out (58%)
2) Chocolate (50%)
3) Flowers (46%)
4) Massage (46%)
5) A home-cooked meal (39%)
6) Jewelry (36%)
7) A trip (31%)
8) Spa package (pedicure, skin treatment, etc, 31%)
9) Staycation (night or 2 in a local hotel away from the kids, 30%)
10) Tickets to a concert or comedy show (26%)
7 of the 10 are things you can do pretty inexpensively...I personally prefer the home-cooked meal. It's a sweet gesture, doesn't cost much, and you don't have to deal with the Valentine's Day crowds. Good luck!
ps-- Only 3% of women surveyed said they'd want sexy lingerie, so you're better off skipping that.
