“Luxury spending is already on the rise, so it will come as no surprise that bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings will be the go-to gift choice for many Americans,” said IBISWorld retail industry analyst Nikoleta Panteva.
Other large benefactors of the holiday are expected to be online retailers because the holiday falls on a Monday and people will be working. As the last November-December holiday has shown, more consumers than ever before prefer to buy gifts online. This trend is likely to be repeated on this Valentine’s Day, with orders placed for same-day delivery.
While greeting cards and candy are expected to grow 4.9 percent and 5.1 percent, respectively, the only category expected to outpace the growth in jewelry sales is flowers. IBISWorld forecasts flower orders to total $1.58 billion, a 16.8 percent growth.
The largest category according to IBISWorld is dining out, with Americans expected to spend $8.83 billion on food and drinks.
