February is known as the month of love. This Valentine’s Day was different than any other as it came after a hardship of the pandemic. To celebrate the day to the fullest, many brands ranging from jewelry, food, lifestyle came up with some of the relatable ad campaigns to maximise customer engagement and sales to coincide with the occasion. Most of the campaigns promoted that Valentine’s should not be just about a day or a person but can also mean self-love or care for the one you love every day.
Some of the best ads are:
