A recent survey conducted among quebecers concluded that they will be spending less than before this year for Valentine’s Day. 

More precisely, Quebecers responded that they will be spending 58$ this year, a drop of 5.8% since last year.

What could explain this drop? Are Quebecers simply not motivated to spend on their significant others anymore? Are V-Day gifts overrated? 

The survey conducted by HelloSafe revealed that the issue didn’t lie within Quebecers’ willing to spend for the holiday, and that it wasn’t based on a drop of interest. The problem rather lies within inflation.

Inflation in Quebec has affected grocery prices, housing, and now, holidays. In fact, 6 responders out of 10 revealed that the increasing cost of life in the province will affect their budget for the big day of romance.

What about you? Will you be spending less on Valentine’s Day this year?
