Over three quarters (81 per cent) of Scots would choose to receive a romantic gesture over an expensive gift this Valentine’s Day – according to research from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Scotland.
In fact, Scots are so keen on romantic gestures that 14 per cent think that breakfast in bed or being sent a love letter (13 per cent) is the most romantic thing a partner could do for them.
The British Heart Foundation are giving romantic souls the chance to show how much they love someone with the launch of their annual Love Notes campaign again this year.
It is the perfect way to romance that special person by posting a heartfelt Love Note in a BHF Scotland shop window until February 16. Just pop into your local shop with a minimum £1 donation – every penny funds life-saving research into the fight for every heartbeat.
Carol Mitchell, BHF Scotland shops regional manager, said: “It’s interesting to see that 81 per cent of people in Scotland prefer romantic gestures over expensive gifts. Posting a Love Note in a BHF Scotland shop window is one of the easiest ways to express your love for that special someone while the small donation of £1 will help the charity fund life-saving research into heart disease.
“Why not also Ramp up the Red on Friday 7 February. Our shops will be turning red so you’re sure to find the perfect red item to help you ramp it up!”
