You don't need to spend a fortune to spoil your lover on Tuesday. There are plenty of Valentine's Day freebies and deals at restaurants.
Consumers are expected to spend $18.2 billion this year on Valentine's Day, according to the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights and Analytics.
That figure is down from the record-high $19.7 billion that consumers spent last year.
"Valentine's Day continues to be a popular gift-giving occasion even if consumers are being more frugal this year," NRF chief Matthew Shay said in a statement. "Consumers will find that retailers recognize that their customers are looking for the best deals and will offer good bargains just as they did during the holiday season."
Consumers are expected to spend $3.8 billion on an evening out, according to the NRF's research.
"While fewer are planning to celebrate Valentine's Day this year, millions of shoppers will still make room in their budgets to spoil their loved ones," Pam Goodfellow, Prosper principal analyst, said in a statement. "Consumers can expect promotions on everything from flowers to date-night dinner packages in the coming days, leaving plenty of ideas for those looking to spoil their Valentines."
