More consumers plan to spend this Valentines Day at home due to the strain of the economy.
Traditional gifts, such as candy, flowers and splurging on expensive jewelry are slightly decreasing and being replaced with more intimate, cost efficient ways of showing love and affection.
Consumers who want to save a buck this Valentines Day but are not willing to compromise price for quality are turning to gift baskets, in particular online gift basket businesses. Online gift basket businesses not only provide an array of Valentines Day gift options ranging from romantic to naughty, they also provide an ease and the convenience of being able to have a gift shipped directly to its recipient.
The National Retail Federation’s 2008 Valentines Day Consumer Intentions and Actions Survey, conducted by BIGresearch, stated that consumers prefer gifts of experience. Vice President of Strategy for BIGresearch, Phil Rist says “Consumers are expected to invest time and money on gifts of experience this year and are looking for quality rather than quantity.”
From romantic escapades to sexy rendezvous’, GiftBasketsMade2Perfection.com carries everything needed for a most memorable Valentines Day, all nestled in the form of a gift basket.
“Valentines Day is the premier occasion to demonstrate your romantic side, but it can also put a damper on your finances. With the current state of the economy putting a strain on the pockets of consumers, it’s no surprise that consumers are resorting to alternative ways of showing their affection in order to save a buck. Valentines Day is the perfect time to get creative with gift options and most people agree that it’s the thought that counts. Who wouldn't love to ignite or rekindle sparks this year without having to break the bank?” says Hobbs.
