What do women want for Valentine’s Day?

WASHINGTON – It’s Valentine’s Day – the holiday of love.

And you know what women want? A life-sized teddy bear, a chocolate heart and, of course, anything that comes from Victoria’s Secret, right?


All they want is you.

According to an eHarmony survey, 87 percent don’t need anything other than the gift of time spent with their sweetie.

Only 23 percent of the women polled would prefer a traditional Valentine’s Day gift of flowers, candy or perfume.

But, a whopping 97 percent of women said nixing the lingerie is best. They’d rather have something else.

If you do want to get your significant other something, one third would prefer a present related to their hobbies or passions.

The survey polled 350 women. Click here for more information.
