One of the UK’s fastest growing gift experience day websites have conducted research and found that IT workers and technicians are among the most romantic men when it comes to buying gifts for their other half.

Research from the UK’s fastest growing experience day website has today revealed that IT workers and “geeks” are the most romantic of all men when it comes to buying gifts for their partner. www.IntoTheBlue.co.uk noted an increase in the number of unique gifts being purchased on the site for Valentine’s Day, and decided to find out what kind of men were buying them.

The site polled 1,769 men with various different jobs and found that IT workers were the best at choosing both thoughtful and unique gifts. 73% of the IT workers quizzed said that they were planning something special for Valentine’s Day, with just over half saying that had been looking into gift ideas for over a month.

Of all the men quizzed, 39% said that they were planning on buying something special for their other half this Valentine’s Day, whilst just under half said that they hadn’t even thought about what gift to buy their girlfriend yet.

Musicians were the second most romantic, with 69% saying that they were confident that their partner would love their Valentine’s gift. They were also the profession that was most likely to make their other half a gift with 53% saying that they planned to sing on the day.

The top five most romantic men (based on those planning something special):

1. IT workers – 73%
2. Musicians – 69%
3. Artists – 63%
4. Doctors – 58%
5. Interior Designer – 55%

The least romantic men by profession were personal trainers, where 53% said that they weren’t sure what to get their partner this year, and 11% said that they weren’t even going to buy anything. Of the personal trainers who weren’t buying their girlfriend a present for Valentine’s Day, nearly half, 48% said they weren’t planning on staying in their relationship much longer.

DJ’s were the third most unromantic professions, despite musicians being the second most romantic.

The top five least romantic men (based on those planning something special):

1. Personal Trainers – 7%
2. Stock Brokers – 13%
3. DJ’s – 16%
4. Sales Reps – 21%
5. Insurance Workers – 22%

Rob Holmes, Ecommerce & Marketing Manger of Intotheblue.co.uk said;

“I think this research has shown that certain professions can have a level of influence on what kind of gifts that they are likely to get. I think that this is reflective on the jobs that allow people to be more creative like IT workers, musicians and interior designers.”
