What do multi-millionaires give on Valentine’s Day?

Nearly five in ten investors with a net worth greater than $5 million plan to buy a card for their significant other on Valentine’s Day, but fewer than one in five of these individuals plan to buy flowers, chocolate, jewelry or gifts to celebrate the day., a unit of Spectrem Group LLC, Lake Forest, Ill., arrives at this conclusion in a new survey of investors about their plans for celebrating Valentine’s Day.

The report shows that 48 percent intend to observe the day by buying a card for their spouse or significant other. And 40 percent intend to go out to dinner.
