We’re talking about love so you want to go all out, but the new frugal spending plan you’ve instituted won’t allow for that. According to last year’s spending stats from the National Retail Federation, people planned to spend an average of $162, which was up more than 10 percent over 2018. But just because other folks are spending that much, doesn’t mean YOU have to! I’ve found a slew of Valentine’s Day gifts under $75 for your sweetheart.
