More than half of Americans say that it’s important to shop for Valentine’s Day
Ebates.com , the pioneer and leader in online cash back shopping, today announced findings from its 2014 Valentine’s Day Survey. The nationwide survey, conducted online in January within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Ebates among 2,000 adults ages 18 and older, discovered the top Valentine’s Day gift choices of Americans—and how they differ based on gender. In addition, the survey also revealed top reasons a majority of Americans think it’s important to shop for Valentine’s Day.
The survey found that men’s top choice was a gift card to their favorite store while women most wanted to receive flowers for Valentine’s Day. What we failed to see are balloons in their findings…
- A Valentine’s Day gift is an expression of love to their significant other – 36%
- Giving a gift makes them feel good – 26%
- It’s a tradition they like to follow – 19%
- Their significant other is expecting a gift and will be upset if they don’t buy one – 8%
“We wanted to make Valentine’s Day shopping for loved ones as easy as possible by highlighting popular gift choices. Every year shows a different wish list from the man or woman in your life and the real data we have here about gifts people want will help our shoppers make the right call on gift giving to their Valentine,” said Kevin H. Johnson, CEO of Ebates.
