Every February 14th across the United States and in other places around the world candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones all in the name of St. Valentine. Men and women of all ages go all out in displaying their fondness for each other. Every year, Americans spend a sweet 18 billion dollars on candy, cards, chocolates, flowers and jewelry.
Greeting cards are the most common gift, but not just for couples; family, friends and kids at school also exchange cards with notes of friendship, affection and appreciation. America’s most popular Valentine’s Day candy isn’t a box of chocolates though – it’s the little conversation hearts with messages like “Be Mine” and “Kiss Me.” Fun fact: enough candy hearts are produced in a year for everyone in the world to have one!
Valentine’s Day does not only have to be about loved ones appreciating each other. Businesses can show their customers that they appreciate them with amazing promotional gifts. Showing customers they are appreciated boosts morale and increases workplace effectiveness. Whether you are interested in budget-friendly products or you want to do something quick and easy, here are some clever ideas to jumpstart your appreciation efforts.
