Women have certain standards regarding Valentine’s Day gifts. A man doesn’t need to spend way beyond his means… but he can’t be cheap. Is the amount of money a man spends telling? Does the price point equate to how he feels about you?
A few gentlemen broke it down.
If your man spends the bare minimum on a gift (even if it’s not a Valentine’s Day gift) it can be an indication that he has stopped trying in the relationship. He may have plans to end the relationship sooner than later. Or the lady may just be his “side chick.” Why, you ask? According to these gentlemen, men do understand the importance of Valentines Day. They know they have one job to do – to woo their Valentine. If he isn’t trying to impress you, regardless of how he feels about Cupid, he may not be that into you.
But what of those men who go the simple route and only gift their sweetie with flowers and chocolate? Often times men just don’t know what to buy their Valentine. It’s also the affordable option. But not all chocolate is cheap. One guy admitted that he’s not very creative with his gift giving, but he still wants his lady to feel appreciated and loved. So he purchased $70 worth of chocolates and flowers for her.
Another man pulled all the stops for his woman. He spent over a thousand dollars on his Valentine’s Day present. That included a premium Disney pass ($729), flowers and chocolates ($60), a treat from Victoria’s Secret ($200), and he also took his love out to dinner ($70). He went above and beyond because he wanted to make her feel special. She had wanted those items for a while.
