Valentine’s Day has overtaken Easter as the biggest spending retail event in the first half of the year in many parts of the world. Valentine’s Day ranges have broadened to include both premium and personalised gift options, as consumer’s increase their demand for quality gifts. If you are looking for creative ideas ahead of the 14 February visit this site, especially if you want to go beyond the traditional gifts of lingerie, flowers and chocolates. The demand for more personalised gifts has led to higher value purchases and a marked increase in shopping online. Here we look at the love in numbers across the globe:
In 2018, Asia’s biggest Valentine’s Day spenders were people who live on Mainland China (USD274), followed by Taiwan (USD245) and Hong Kong (USD231), with Singapore fourth at USD180 and Thailand completing the top five at USD145. In 2018 The amount Chinese couples spent fell slightly, partly due to the date clash with Chinese New Year on 16 February, whereas in 2017 the date was at the end of January.
