When it comes to Valentine’s Day and romance, it has been revealed that the UK is very much a nation of two halves. Whilst some consumers are going all out to make the ultimate commitment on Cupid’s special day, lovers in other parts of the country are planning on making much less grand gestures!
The nation’s romantic hot spots and ‘not spots’ are revealed by notonthehighstreet.com today, the leading curated online marketplace which connects the best small creative businesses with the world. And sales statistics show that whilst ‘love-drunk’ Yorkshire folk are purchasing the most Valentine’s cards & gifts for their loved ones, Londoners seem less willing to profess their undying love, with the least amount of Valentine’s items sold in the capital.
Sales figures indicate that:
Over 40% of the Valentine’s Day notonthehighstreet.com products sold in Scotland were personalised song lyric prints Midlanders are showing their lasting love through pottery (how very Ghost!)
Things are getting serious in the North East with male shoppers there snapping up the most personalised ring boxes Londoners’ feet are in for a treat this Valentine’s Day, as men’s socks are the most popular gift purchased by capital dwellers.
