Valentine's Day is the most romantic day of the year, but it's also one of the most expensive. In 2015, Americans spent an estimated $18.9 billion celebrating their loved ones — with people spending an average of $142.31 on candy, flowers, clothing and more. This year, spending is expected to reach an all time high — $19.7 billion — according to a National Retail Federation survey.
Feb. 14 is a day to celebrate love and romance, so it's important not to lose sight of what matters most. Remember, it's not how much money you spend on Valentine's Day gifts that counts, it's the company you keep. If your Valentine's Day 2016 plans are constrained by a limited budget, you can still join in the fun without breaking the bank.
