Men are going to spend nearly twice as much as women with overall sales amounting to a whopping $19 billion, an increase on 2014.

Somewhat bizzarely, 21.2 percent of Americans will spend a grand total of $703 million on Valentine’s Day gifts for their pets!…

Love is in the air and we are spending a lot of money to show our Valentine how much they mean to us!
