Women favour romantic gestures over expensive gifts

Mollie King Love NoteForget expensive gifts or sexy lingerie, what women want is a love letter or a handwritten poem - according to a study by our Shops as we launch our annual Love Notes fundraising campaign.

The survey reveals that over three quarters of women (87%) prefer thoughtful romantic gestures compared to expensive gifts (13%).  With women revealing that being whisked away (27%) or receiving a love letter or handwritten poem (25%) as the most romantic gesture their other half can do for them.
