Romantic dining is top choice for Valentines

The favourite way to woo the opposite sex on Valentineís Day is over a candlelit dinner according to Intersperienceís poll of British consumersí spending plans.

The poll showed that among people planning a Valentine treat for their loved one, the top spending choice was a romantic meal, with 44% intending either to go out to dinner or make a special meal at home.

Gift budgets are tight this year, with 89% restricting spending to £40 or less but there is good news if you want to say it with flowers - that will stretch to a dozen red roses and you will still have a penny change.

Flowers are the second most popular romantic treat, followed by chocolates. Surprisingly, perfume didnít get a mention in romantic spending plans this year and while diamonds may be a girlís best friend, ladies hoping for a surprise proposal on Valentineís Day may be in for a letdown as none of the respondents were planning to buy jewellery either.
