Here's how much the average American spends on Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day 2017 is right around the corner, and whether you think Valentine's Day is a bogus Hallmark holiday or a the most romantic 24 hours of the year, it never hurts to show your significant other just how much you care.

At least, that's how Americans feel if numbers from last year are any indication. We spent an estimated $19.7 million on Valentine's Day in 2016 beating the record set in 2016, according to Fundivo.

The average spend per person came in around $147. That's a significant jump from 2010, when people spent just $103 per person.

Join in on the mushy-gushy fun this year and see below for some great gifts under $147:
