While Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many places, romantics in some countries take it much more seriously than others.  On average, Asian shoppers spend the most, an average of $274 per person for V-Day, while Germans, at $94, spend the lowest, according to Rakuten LinkShare. (Germans are also most likely to space it out entirely, with 31% confessing they’ve occasionally forgotten the holiday.) Other regional variations? In France, online flower purchases jump 52% leading up the big day, while lingerie sales in the U.K. climb 27%, and sales of chocolates in Indonesia double.
