NRF has been conducting its annual Valentine's Day consumer spending survey since 2004 to gauge how Americans plan to celebrate this special day with their loved ones.
Consumers planned to increase Valentine’s Day spending to nearly $26 billion
More than half (52%) of consumers planned to celebrate and spend an average of $192.80. This was up from $175.41 in 2022, and the second-highest figure since NRF and Prosper started tracking Valentine’s Day spending.
