 Men Cutting Back on Valentine's Day Gifts: Study

Don't expect too many gifts from your man this Valentine's Day, says a new study, which found that men are cutting back on their spending.

According to the research, men's Valentine's Day gift buying fell by 25 per cent last year on 2009, with the trend set to continue this year.

Just over 11 million romantic gifts were bought by both men and women last year, 16 per cent fewer than in 2009, continuing a decline which began in 2008. But men in particular appear to be losing their enthusiasm for the event, buying 2.3 million fewer gifts in 2010 than in 2009.

Men account for more than two thirds of the Valentine's Day gifting market, according to a study by Kantar Worldpanel GiftTrak.

A spokesman said this Valentine's Day could get a boost from being on a Monday.

"The fact that it fell on a Sunday last year contributed to the decline in gift purchasing, as more partners may have prepared treats such as breakfast in bed instead," the Scotsman quoted the spokesman as saying.
