While 43 percent men feel they would want to spend more as compared to their Valentine on the day for love, only 28 percent of the women surveyed shared the sentiment.

According to the survey, men clearly understand what women want and are planning to gift what women desire.

On being asked what men and women both expected as a Valentine's Day gift from each other, men had a clear idea about the gifts. Flowers, jewellery, clothing, accessories and weekend trips are some of the gifts women feel they should get, and men answered these questions correctly in the survey.

On the other hand, women respondents answered that men would also like customized gifts and fragrances on the day while most of the men responded that they would like to receive electronics/gadgets and jewellery apart from flowers, clothing and weekend trips.

Commenting on the survey, Sumeet Singh, group chief marketing officer, Info Edge (India) Limited, said, "It's that time of the year when people are on the lookout for gift ideas for Valentine's Day. Through this survey, we have tried to figure out trends that emerge when people think of ideas to make this day beautiful.

"The response was huge with people giving very interesting answers to questions they thought added value to the ideas they had while planning for the day."

Since Valentine's Day this year falls on a Sunday, 33 percent respondents were planning to relax at home, while only 16 percent were planning an outdoor trip.
