ValentinesDayMap

Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, which means millions of Americans are wondering  what they will receive on this most romantic of days. It could be flowers or chocolates, or it could be something completely unexpected. Curiosity got the best of Estatelyso we set out to find what Valentine’s Day-related gifts people in each state Google more frequently than people in all other states. To do this we ran hundreds of possible gift-related search queries through Google Trends, which ranks how frequently people in each state search for each term online.

Hopefully this information is of some use, such as to help you determine where you might like to search for a home for sale (with Estately, of course), or what type of gift you should be on the lookout for on Valentine’s Day. Either way, please remember this doesn’t show what people in each state Googled the most, it’s what search term or terms people in each state Googled more frequently than people in all other states.
