Fewer people are celebrating Valentine’s Day this year by buying gifts. According to the National Retail Federation’s new survey, respondents will celebrate the holiday by spending an average of under $134, similar to last year.
But the number of people planning to celebrate it this year has fallen: 54 percent compared to 60 percent last year. RetailMeNot finds that almost 20 percent of people do not plan to spend anything on their significant other for Valentine’s Day.
