With consumers expressing a growing interest in gifts that leave a lasting impression, there’s a notable shift in spending habits, with 63% of individuals expressing a willingness to invest more in items with enduring value for their Valentine’s Day shopping.
In this evolving market, retailers have a unique opportunity to tap into the ‘feel good’ factor as a catalyst for increased spending. According to Mintel’s insightful market analysis, there is a collective desire to uplift spirits after a challenging period, and Valentine’s Day is seen as an ideal occasion for this purpose.
As consumers seek ways to brighten moods and create positive experiences, gifts that offer emotional and mental benefits are poised to be particularly popular in 2024.
