Geordies in love are leaving essential Valentine’s Day gift purchases to the very last minute, according to data released today by Prime Now – Amazon’s fastest delivery service.
Ahead of this year’s Valentine’s Day, the ultra-fast delivery service revealed some of the last minute orders placed by customers in Newcastle on the day of love in 2016.
On Valentine’s Day last year, romance-themed orders delivered last minute in Newcastle included champagne ordered at 6pm to arrive at 8pm.
Orders from customers across the UK using the ultra-fast delivery service last year for romantic supplies include:
Aftershave, chocolates and cereal ordered in London at 9:14am.
An engagement ring, earrings and fudge ordered in Birmingham at 11:37am for delivery at 2pm.
The unseen version of 50 Shades of Grey, Terry’s Chocolate Orange and coffee ordered at 3:30am and delivered at midday.
It wasn’t all love-themed purchases on Prime Now during Valentine’s Day, with one shopper treating themselves to a PlayStation 4 and a copy of Uncharted 4, ordered in the morning and delivered at midday.
On the theme of self-gifting, for people in Newcastle who wake up on the morning of February 14th this year with no plans or those who’ve been stood up on a Valentine’s Day date, Amazon Prime Now has stocked a range of self-gifting products that are available in one or two-hour delivery windows.
Here’s our pick of the ultimate gifts to me, from me for single lads and lasses in Newcastle.
