Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and we're already seeing lots of questions come in about what's the most popular Valentine's Day Gifts. We sell a LOT of gifts for Valentine's Day, stuff we can't believe guys send their girlfriends and wives, but hey, whatever floats your boat! This year, we decided to look back at what everyone was sending in each state, and even sent out a survey to thousands of our customers to ask them what they sent.
And there's a lot to be surprised about. Chocolate surprised us as being a top gift in more states than we expected, especially in the Northeast. Lingerie? Is there a reason why it's the top gift in states with mostly Hot Weather? Or are they sending a different signal? Spa related gifts eeked out a #1 win, not by much, in Virgina and North Dakota. And Teddy Bears: Who knew so many guys had a soft spot in the middle of the country.
Finally, we were surprised at the clear difference between states that prefer Roses versus general flowers. Usually those two gifts ran a close 1st-2nd place followed by everything else, but in New Jersey, a full 65% of guys sent roses, the next highest item was chocolates which came in at 30%, the highest gap between 1st and 2nd place for any state in America. You sure love your chocolate New Jersey! Find your state and see if you're sending what everyone else is sending!
