Finally some help to figure out how much money I should spend on Valentine's Day.

Every year, I ask myself the same question. How much should I spend on a Valentine's Day present?

Thanks to, here are some guidelines that might help. The amount of money you spent is determined by how long you've been with your significant other.

  • Few weeks: "The small gesture is appreciated. Little gestures really do go a long way. Overall, spending $0 to $50 seems about right."
  • Few months: "Spending between $50 and $100 on an activity you can do together feels about right at this point in the relationship." 
  • Six months: "You can splurge a little at this point, while still keeping it meaningful. Around $100 seems about right."
  • Year: "Buying your loved one something they would never buy themselves is always a great move." 

"At the end of the day, it really is the thought that counts, so why not pick something out that's thoughtful and personal, even if that ends up being a card."

I hope this helps you pick out something special for your Valentine this year.
