The most romantic day of the year is nearly upon us. 14th February – a day to serenade the loved one in your life with love, laughter, hugs and gifts. Over the last few years, Valentine’s Day (much like Halloween) has seen a huge resurgence as a major event in the yearly calendar. So much so, that Valentine’s Day contributed an estimated £726 million to the UK economy last year, according to statistics from marketing agency ‘Get Savvy’.
Interested in Valentine’s Day 2019, online marketplace OnBuy.com surveyed 2,264 Brits who are married or in a relationship from a range of office jobs to determine which profession is going to be the most romantic on Valentines.
OnBuy.com found that those working in ‘marketing and sales’ (75%) will mark the occasion. Thereafter, 69% of Brits employed in ‘human resources’ are preparing to enjoy 14th February with the ‘chosen one’ in their life.
Moreover, 62% of those in ‘media/communications/public relations (PR)’ roles are going to be indulging their other half with romantic gestures on Valentine’s Day. Just below, 53% of workers in ‘legal and insurance’ are planning on bringing a bit of extra happiness to their partners on Thursday 14th February.
Contrastingly, Brits operating in the field of ‘information and technology (IT)’ are the least likely to revel in the occasion, with only 36% looking to make a big deal of the day. Slightly above, 44% of professionals in ‘finance and accounting’ celebrate Valentine’s Day by doing something special for their partner.
Cas Paton, the Managing Director of OnBuy.com commented:
