It appears more people are in the giving spirit this Valentine's Day--or at least they're willing to spend like they are.

A new survey reveals that the average adult is planning to spend a little more than $116 on Valentine's Day gifts and merchandise. That's 12.8 percent more than last year.

But the survey also showed fewer people are planning to celebrate the holiday.

About 58 percent of adults surveyed said they'll be celebrating, which is down from 60 percent last year.
