Couples Will Spend Over $400 on Each Other for Valentine’s Day 2022

We’re two weeks away from Valentine’s Day, and so here’s a reminder to start thinking about it…if you haven’t already. Because people are apparently spending MORE than usual, and it isn’t just a little inflation.

According to a study by LendingTree, the average person with a significant other expects to shell out around $208 this year, which is up 44%.

The average was $144 last year, and $142 in 2020.  That’s a total of $416 per couple if you have joint finances.

The biggest spenders are people who are just a year or two into their relationships. They expect to drop an average of $247. On the flip-side, people who are less than a year into their relationships are “only” spending $186.

That money DOES include eating out. 37% of couples are planning to go to a special dinner, which is up from 26% last year. 25% plan to have a special dinner at home and 16% plan to get take-out.

39% of couples opted to skip Valentine’s Day last year to save money, but that number dropped to 31% this year.

Of course, if you’re a little short on cash right now, but still want to try to get something unique for your Valentine this year — I highly recommend you sign up for Mad Rock’s 2022 Valentine’s Day Giveaway! You can sign up ONE TIME PER DAY through Sunday, February 13th. Good Luck!
