As Britain prepares for the wedding of Prince William, 28, and Kate Middleton, 29, engagement ring sales are up 75 percent on last year with sapphire bands like Kate's rocketing by 40 percent.

Brits are also buying 20 times more health and beauty products than those across the Channel.

"The UK is way ahead when it comes to buying gifts, both lavish and thoughtful, around Valentine's Day," the Daily Star quoted Ebay's Ruth Szyszkowski as saying.
