K155, XXX, or XOX: An Unexpectedly Popular Choice for Valentine’s Day

The most memorable gifts are those that are customised, thoughtful, and enduring. For those on the hunt for a unique Valentine’s Day present, even at the eleventh hour, Plates4Less offers an ingenious solution.

Opting for a private number plate is a gift that checks all these criteria, and Plates4Less has unveiled just how sought-after these gifts are. Data indicates that nearly 40% of their clientele purchase private number plates as presents, primarily for partners on occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, and Valentine’s Day.

The primary challenge for many is the complexity involved in the selection, acquisition, and assignment of a private plate to a significant other. However, Plates4Less has simplified this process with their comprehensive Plates4Gifts Guide, which demystifies each step in straightforward terms.

What Exactly Are Private Number Plates?

Often referred to as private registration marks or cherished number plates, these are gifts meant to last a lifetime, adding a personal touch to one’s vehicle and even serving as potential investments.

The Rising Popularity of Private Number Plates

“We’ve seen a big increase in the demand for private plates over the last five years with a 30% increase in marketwide activity since 2017,” explained Antony Clark, number plate expert and Marketing Manager at Plates4Less.
With Valentine’s Day on the way, he’s shared some insights into the industry. He said: “Since cars are more expensive than ever but also more reliable and comfortable, it seems that some people prefer to purchase a new plate, rather than change their vehicle.
“People also enjoy private plates because they are personal and unique, so they can make their mass-produced vehicle more individual and special to them.”

Selecting a Private Plate for Someone Else

There are a few tried-and-tested insider methods that the Plates4Less team uses to find the perfect number plate. Starting with personal attributes like the recipient’s name, initials or a hobby, is always a good idea..
Once you’ve got the basic idea, you can add in fillers like significant dates or initials!
Things like K155, XXX, XOX, LUV, HOT, 69, TNT, WOW, SX51 or MI55 are cute, romantic and even raunchy, so they help complete the plate!
You can find many tips for gifting in the Plates4Gifts Hub Search Guide, but finding a good partner plate is pretty simple.

Suggested Layouts for Matching Partner Plates

Plates4Less has introduced “Partner Plates,” a category for plates that integrate the names or initials of two individuals along with a meaningful number.

For those considering such a gift, starting with your partner’s name or initials is a good first step. Here are some layout suggestions that adhere to government-issued plate standards:

  • Your initials + 04 + Partner’s Initials
  • Your initials + significant number* + Partner’s 3 initials
  • First Initial + significant number* + 3-letter Abbreviated Surname
  • Marriage Month Letter + Day + 3 initials
  • MI55/ MR MR51 + Initials/ 3-letter name/ 3-letter Abbreviated Surname

*Significant numbers might include marriage year, house number, birthdays, or other pertinent figures.

For those whose significant others might not own a vehicle or a driving licence, brainstorming private number plate ideas can be a heartfelt and cost-free gesture. This can be done on the Plates4Less website, where you can also compile a shortlist to find out their preferred choice.
