Men and Women Like Sweet Gifts

- Thursday, February 07, 2013

If you are sitting in your apartment in Roanoke, VA trying to figure out what women want on Valentine's Day, figuring out what men want may be even tougher. After all, Valentine's Day isn't only about the ladies. A nationwide study revealed exactly what men and women want. This info could help some couples find sweet success this Valentine's Day. Here is what the study found:

A Penchant for Pralines? When asked to select the sexiest Valentine's Day candy, men were more likely than women (25% vs. 23%) to select specialty candies such as truffles, pralines and caramels. Men were also more likely to select dark chocolate, whereas women felt milk chocolate was the sexiest candy to give a spouse or significant other.

Tip for Women: consider exploring more sophisticated gift ideas for your spouse or significant other this Valentine's Day. Just because your man is a sports junkie, doesn't mean he doesn't appreciate the finer things in life!

  • Procrastinate Later. Surprisingly, more men than women (8% vs. 6%) selected "the evening before Valentine's Day" as the ideal time to present a loved one with candy.
  • Intimate Settings. Both men and women desire a romantic, private setting for their special Valentine's Day. According to the survey, nearly 40% of respondents rated "in front of the fireplace" as the most popular place to share candy. For women, the second best place to savor sweets was after a nice dinner. Not surprisingly, men preferred enjoying the treat "in bed."

Tip : A romantic location is always preferred to present a sweet treat to your Valentine. Pick a place that commemorates a special memory, moment or occasion in your relationship.

  • Breakfast in Bed? Both men and women (32%) felt that waking up with a sexy sweet is the best way to start Valentine's Day.

While men and women may have specific preferences, the results of the survey show that candy has a place in everyone's heart on Valentine's Day. Everyone appreciates classic Valentine's Day gifts. Candy is a romantic classic, and can be very personal, reflecting the individual tastes of the person you love.

Chocolate is a clear favorite that everyone from couples to companions can enjoy. While some people might celebrate Valentine's Day in an intimate setting, others might consider hosting a chocolate tasting or a chocolate and wine pairing party to experience a range of tastes, textures and aromas.
