The Ultimate Valentine's Day Gift List - Top Financial Advisor Gives His 2009 Gift Recommendations

Houston, TX (PressExposure) February 05, 2009 -- Whether Americans like to admit it or not, we all have a bit of the hopeless romantic in our hearts. With love in the air, Americans find it irresistible to flaunt their affection at this time of the year. Jim Trippon, CPA and one of America’s foremost authorities on the money habits of self-made millionaires, has released his ultimate Valentine’s Day gift list to astonish your significant other this holiday season.

According to the National Retail Federation, last year Americans spent a remarkable $17.02 billion on Valentine’s Day. Overall, consumers are focusing more on quality than quantity. Americans are leaning more towards a getaway spot instead of a box of cheap chocolates.

This year retailers are turning their focus towards men’s jewelry. Watches are becoming the new tie for Valentine’s Day. Will women take the lead this year as “The Biggest Spender”? Not likely since men spent roughly 48% more than women last year.

“Each year it seems that Americans top themselves in spending for Valentine’s Day”, says Trippon, “I think people should focus less on how much they are spending and more on the quality of the gift. Find something to enjoy together!”

Here is Trippon’s Ultimate Valentine’s Day gift list for 2009:

1. Carbonana Castle, authentic templar castle- $11,000,000 euros (completely renovated) 2. Isla Bonita, Brazil- 2,600,000 USD 3. Neil Lane Ruffle Cuff Bracelet- $250,000 4. Tiffany & Co. Jean Schlumberger Bracelets- $65,000 5. Polar Explorers North Pole Dogsled Expedition- $40,000 euros 6. Vacheron Constantin Quai de L'Ile- up to $60,000 7. Fendi 24 Carat Gold Python Frame Bag- $36,000 8. Pianki Biometric Briefcase- $12,000 9. Vertu Ferrari Ascent Ti- $9,650 10. Bond No. 9 The Crystallized Amphora- $3,500

Trippon believes that people stay in love when they take the time to become educated about money together.

“Get real and deal with your budget”, says Trippon, “Be honest with each other about your money habits and come up with a plan to spend it as a couple. It will improve your love life!”

Trippon is the author of the Amazon best-seller, How Millionaires Stay Rich Forever: Retirement Planning Secrets of Millionaires and How They Can Work For You.
