Valentine's Day 2022 Spending Forecast
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and consumers are expected to spend a record amount of money this year! The National Retail Federation has released its annual survey, which shows that spending on Valentine’s Day is expected to reach $23.9 billion. This is up from $21.8 billion in 2021 and the second-highest year on record. So what are people spending all this money on?
The survey found that nearly 31% will be spending their money on an evening out! The average consumer is expected to spend $175 this year, up from $165 in 2021. With many people opting for spending the evening at home due to ongoing COVID concerns, you’ll want to make sure that you have meal kits or several course meals to help these consumers recreate the fine-dining experience.
