Another survey claims that “regardless of gender, 59% of Americans plan to spend at least the same this February holiday as they did last year, 23% plan to spend more, and only 18% plan to spend less.”

Hopefully this means good news for Aussie florists this year too!

A UK survey  claims that 45% of Britons claim to be intending to spend about $35AU each this Valentine’s Day with approximately 31% of gifts likely to be flowers. Meanwhile US stats show US citizens on average intend to spend about $63AU each in 2013. Stats from 2012 put the actual average US spend for that year at a higher $111AU.

Wonder what the average Australian Valentine’s Day spend is? We couldn’t find that anywhere online.
