Survey shows that Apple's iPad is the most wanted Valentine's Day gift in the UK

Survey shows that Apple's iPad is the most wanted Valentine's Day gift in the UK

According to a survey conducted by Play.com - one of the largest online retailers in the UK - Apple’s iPad (any model) is the most desired Valentine’s Day gift among British adults this year. The survey gathered answers from 1,000 respondents across the UK.

Apple’s tablet tops a list that also contains flowers, jewelry, a laptop, and Sony’s PlayStation 4 as desired Valentine’s gifts. Interestingly, it’s said that adults aged 55 or above want an iPad the most, while 18 to 24 year-olds would rather receive flowers.

Although the most wanted gift is the iPad, the most expected (and the most likely to be received in the end) turns out to be chocolate, while flowers and clothes complete the top three on the list of expected gifts. 

We don’t have data to back this up, but we’re pretty sure that the iPad, as well as Android tablets, are also desired Valentine’s Day gifts not just in the UK, but all over Europe and in North America. A new smartphone could also be a nice present, and, in case you’re looking for one that’s dressed in pink, you should check out our Valentine's Day suggestions right here.

Silly consumerism.

Normally, after all the romantic events of the evening, the adventures, the broadway shows she likes, the dinner, and after getting laid, we each exchange some presents. Looks like that is what everyone else does too, and an iPad is included this year, again, it seems. It's not just giving someone a tablet and calling it a day. Looks like you are lacking some common sense, or a female, or homosexual lover in your case.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Best Buy has them for $50 off and Target is including a $50 gift card if you purchase one. I went on Craigslist and couldn't be any happier.

Well, I'm sorry but… I'm an Android user, and the more I use the ipad (I have many friends that have it) the more I think that ios is really primitive compared to Android, and it's not true that iOS is easier to use, and it's not true that iOS is faster (providing that you have a good android tablet, which will be less expensive than a comparable ipad anyway).

that the problem my friend only few people notice lol

i gave my mom a iphone 5 and she didnt understand how to use... i bought her then a note 2 she love it... i have her the iphone because well she is not a tech geek and i thought well iphone are easy to understand.. no not really

even i find hard time using a iphone and im a tech geek..

and its true what you said people say well ios is faster not really compare installing something and downloading on high ends phone android will win

just like tablet .. but hey people choose brand and that maybe the problem
