Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, which means it's time to present your significant other with a token of your love. According to the National Retail Federation, most men plan on showing they care with flowers, whereas many women prefer to give greeting cards or sweets as a token of their affection.
The chart below shows the most popular Valentine's Day gifts for both women and men in the United States.
While flowers and sweets are a tradition, this Valentine's Day we dare you to think outside the box (of chocolates) and show your affection in a more unconventional way — with music.
