Valentine’s Day Features

January 14, 2010

Valentine's candy

Did you know that Valentine’s Day sections are one of the largest sections the media runs annually, even after Santa returns to the North Pole?  Or that the National Retail Federation estimates the size of the Valentine’s Day market at more than $14 billion?

That, according to Hallmark, 180 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually?  That 58 million pounds of chocolate candy, at a total of $345 million, will be sold in the week before Valentine’s Day?

Now is the best time to help out Cupid and prepare your Valentine’s Day feature . Tell section editors about the latest gifts, trends or expert advice you want to promote and keep consumers in-the-know.

If you have a good story to tell, Business Wire will be sending two Valentine’s Day feature news packages to the media this year. Copy for these topics is due January 15 and January 26th.

Find out more about our Features Topic Series packages at http://www.businesswire.com/portal/site/home/features/.

And if you’re covering Valentine’s Day in your publication, broadcast or blog, be sure to sign up to receive Business Wire’s customizable news feed service via PressPass so you don’t ever miss a story.
