Proof we're a nation of romantics
When it comes to romance, though, it seems your postcode may be your most vital statistic.
This year, those living in Scotland are in for a great Valentine's Day - almost 69% say they are planning to celebrate the most romantic day of the year. Things aren't looking so rosy for those living in Northern Ireland, though - only 46% of respondents are planning to surprise a loved one.
In London, 62% are gearing up for February 14th, as are 61% of those in the North West, the West Midlands and the South East and 60% in the East Midlands.
The survey revealed that this year red roses will, unsurprisingly, make up most of the bouquets sent, with 63% saying they will be selecting for arguably the most romantic of blooms. 11% will be sending roses of a different colour. And of the rose senders, 69% will be pulling out all the stops and sending a dozen.
79% of men who give flowers prefer to surprise their partner with blooms delivered by a florist and 70% of women prefer to have flowers sent to their home address
The average spend for Valentine's gifts this year will be between £36 and £50 with 42% of respondents spending between these amounts. 7% will be spending between £51 and £100 and only 1% will be pushing the boat out and spending at least £100.
Interflora surveyed 2,634 adults living in the UK during January 2011.
