Love is in the air at Amazon Canada
VANCOUVER -- Nearly half of Canadians find Valentine's Day romantic or fun, an Amazon Canada survey has found.
Results also show the classic card and flower combination remains popular among older Canadians, but only seven per cent of those aged 18 to 34 would want this typical holiday go to.
Amazon Canada's Valentine's Day store at amazon.ca/ValentinesDay takes the guesswork out of finding the perfect gift for that special someone.
The festivities begin the day before Valentine's on Thursday for "Galentine's Day," a day when women celebrate their female friendships. Galentine's is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Kaan Yalkin from Amazon Canada shared a few good gift ideas for yourself or friends to celebrate.
