Brewquets is proud to bring you the 2019 Australian Valentine’s Day Survey – a study into the attitudes and behaviours of Australian couples towards Valentine’s Day. The report that follows is summary of a nationwide study of over 1,500 participants. It is the most robust, public study currently available about Valentine's Day trends in Australia.
Of the 77% celebrating Valentine's Day this year, 64% will be doing something special, with 43% buying gifts for each other. 13% will be celebrating Valentine's on another day.
For the 64% doing something special for Valentine's Day, dining out (48%) is the most popular activity.
Consumer spend on gifts for their Valentine is highly varied with $90 the average expected spend. As a result Brewquets estimates a total of $377 million will be spent on Valentine's Day gifts for 2019.
The type of valentine's gift given differs strongly by gender. Males can expect a mix of serious and joke gifts (63%), while more buy serious gifts for their female partner (58%).
Males are most likely to receive alcohol from their partner (62%) as a Valentine's gift, while females can expect flowers (77%).
The majority of consumers purchase/organise their Valentine's Day gift prior to the week of Valentine's Day. However for just under a quarter (23%), this is done the week of Valentine's.
Using both online and offline channels (47%) is most common for Valentine's Day for 2019.
Two-thirds (65%) will organise their Valentine's gift for their partner to be delivered to them, with the remainder having it delivered to their partners home (18%) or place of work on Valentine's Day (15%).
Valentine's Day still appears to have a place in the heart of most couples; 49% love/like the day, with a further 41% neither for or against it.
While over half (54%) agree Valentine's Day matters in long-term relationships, only 24% expect to have sex on Valentine's Day.
Congratulations to Tania-Lee Davis, winner of $350 to spend with Brewquets.
