What last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts do people really want?

Whether it is a new relationship or a couple who has seen it all, everyone wants to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone. According to Ferrero Rocher, the length of a relationship seems to determine the type of gift that is given.

According to its data, couples in newer relationships tend to lavish gifts on one another while couples who have been together longer, like 16-20 years, tend to cook or bake for one another or buy some wine and chocolate.

Looking at this information, it is interesting that the longer relationships tend to express their love by doing things together. With 64% looking to share food together, it might show that food really is that love language. Whether it is chocolate, wine, or just a favorite recipe, it seems that the gesture to show that someone is special is the way to say I love you.
