Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you scrambling to get the best gift before your big date tonight? If so, we’re here to help.
A recent poll from YouGov found out what the top gifts are Valentine’s Day, broken down by what men want and what women want. If you’re the procrasinating type who waited until today to get something, or you forgot what day it was, you’re in luck! The number one gift people, both men and women, said they want is a card. 36% of women said a card is good, and 30% of men said the same. So get out there and fight over what’s left in the sad little empty Valentine’s Day card aisle. Or, you could always go the DIY route, but I HIGHLY recommend you have a “real” gift to accompany it. You don’t want it to be that obvious you forgot or waited until the last minute. Of course, if you’re giving the homemade card to your parents or children, you’ve got the green light to go this route.
If you want to get something a little more creative, there are other last-minute options for you. The poll taken on the subject of Valentine’s Day gifts broke down the answers according to gender. Because…duh. Men and women don’t want the same thing. And beyond that, what one woman or man wants won’t be the same as what another wants. You’re on your own here. But here’s something to consider. If you’ve been together a while, you should know something specific about your partner. Where do they like to eat? Take them there or bring them that food. What is their favorite color? Buy them something in that color. What do they always complain about that drives them crazy? Offer a solution for that problem. Things like that will get you far.
When it comes to men and women in general, here’s what the survey revealed they want for Valentine’s Day.
