Valentine’s Day: facts and figures
Are you a hopeless romantic? Then Valentine’s Day is probably your favourite celebration of the year. It is the day for lovers, when openly and publicly expressing your love is commonly accepted.
In a survey that was conducted by Shopkick in January 2018, 11,500 users were asked if they considered themselves romantic and a very high 76% of people actually responded positively with 38% of the people even admitting to beginning the planning of Valentine’s Day 1 month before.
In the UK, it is expected that over £450 million will be spent for Valentine’s Day on romantic dinners and flowers, with over 12 million dedicated to jewellery specifically.
In parallel, in America alone it is expected that people will be spending $30 billion on gifts for Valentine's Day this year. In fact, according to statistics that were shared by finder.com, over 54% of Americans have reported that they will be spending money for their loved one for Valentine’s in 2019.
This takes us to the second part of our article, what should you buy for your husband or partner to make this day even more special this year?
Two elegant gift ideas for him
A watch is to a man, what jewellery is to a woman: essential, unique and personal. If you decide to buy a watch as a gift, you need to keep in mind your man’s taste and style. Think about the design and when your partner would wear the watch. Choose the colour and bracelet style carefully so that it is perfect for him.
If a watch is not really what you would like to give him this February, then we would recommend cufflinks. Masculine and elegant cufflinks, maybe set with a black gemstone called onyx and diamonds for a more dramatic effect that will certainly be out-of-the-ordinary. Cufflinks are ideal for a business man or a man that loves to dress up for special occasions.
Have you already chosen your gift for him? BAUNAT has a stunning selection of masculine cufflinks and state-of-the-art watches. Do not hesitate to browse through our online collections and to contact us for guidance.
