Valentine's Day Spending

Sure, it may be the day when we’re expected to revel in romance and shower our lover with tokens of our affection, but a new study of 800 mothers finds that when a woman becomes a mom, she spends roughly the same amount of money on her husband as she does on her kids.


“Moms will spend, on average, a thrifty $24 on a Valentine’s Day gift for their spouse - just a mere dollar more than the $23 they will spend on gifts for their kids,” Parenting.com reported [1]. 


When it comes to what the moms say they really want for Valentine’s Day?


A third of the respondents said they wanted a date night and one in seven said they wanted “a day/night off from the kids and household responsibilities.”
