The study also showed that the most expensive bouquets were purchased in Moscow, with the average cost of flowers reaching 2,422 rubles, an increase of 14% year on year. In other regions, such as Primorye and Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, prices are also above average.

The average price of a box of chocolates also increased by 11% in February 2024, reaching 388 rubles. The average flower bill on the eve of March 8 has increased each year, the company said.
