Research carried out by YouGov shows that only 34% of Singaporeans are expected to be celebrating Valentine’s Day. With the main factor being: those in long term relationships are much less likely to spend the day treating their partner to a gift or go on a date. When questioned why this was the case, the most popular answer was “ because the prices skyrocket during this event.” Groupon conducted a study and discovered among those who do purchase gifts during Valentine’s Day, Singaporeans are the highest spenders, spending on average S$135.
