Here are the results from a survey by Groupon that figured out the bare minimum amount of effort you need to put in to make it look like you tried on Valentine's Day.
1. If you're a man, spend $179 on gifts and dinner. If you're a woman, spend $74.
2. Write at least FOUR sentences in a card.
3. Even if you're planning a night out, make sure to buy SOME gift, even a small one. 26% of women and 19% of men would be disappointed if they didn't get anything.
4. And make sure to plan some activity, even if it's just dinner at home. 71% of people say it's more important that you planned something than what it is specifically.
