As an extension of its core value of ‘freshness’, FreshToHome is breaking V-Day stereotypes by showcasing meat lover couples that are ‘keeping it fresh’. By replacing traditional and outmoded ways of proposing with new ways of expressing love.
As an example, instead of proposing with regular rings, the main film spotlights a foodie proposing with calamari rings. Influencers replace a bouquet of roses with a bouquet of skewered kebabs.

India’s premiere, holistic D2C preventive pet care brand, Wiggles.in with a wide range of products and services continues to keep pets at the center of every celebration. In a bid to encourage pet parents to never give up on caring for their pets, Wiggles.in now launches LoveIsInTheCare, a digital marketing campaign ahead of Valentine’s Day. The campaign is an extension of the brand’s values and attempts to inculcate a spirit of never giving up on one’s pet, no matter the circumstances.
Crafted around the core thought that the ultimate form of love is care, the #LoveIsInTheCare campaign brings to light the fact that pets step into our lives as blessings and ultimately need to be cared for just like any other family member or friend. The campaign explores different aspects around pet care such as teething problems, issues leading to loss of appetite, poor or diminishing eyesight, and how pet parents are the only ones empowered to help them overcome and deal with their problems thus reinforcing the campaign’s core ideology. It also brings together stories of pets suffering from trauma, inflicted with hip dysplasia, tragically hurt, the ones who have donated blood, and even the ones who were saved from being abandoned when they got terminally ill, wherein pet parents took them under their wing and carefully nursed and cared for them like their very own flesh and blood.

Kaya, India’s leading skincare & the largest dermatologist network-enabled brand, recently unveiled a new identity, symbolic of a strategic realignment with its ever-growing young consumer base. Punctuated by this new purpose-fuelled mantra, “Beautiful is You”, Kaya has launched its latest campaign #MyLoveMyWay to celebrate self-love, this Valentine’s Day.
The insight behind the campaign is very deep-seated societal “judgement”. Conventionally, cosmetic treatments have been ridiculed and people who choose to beautify themselves are criticized without understanding their desires. The push towards making beauty a more inclusive space has gained a lot of momentum worldwide. Over the last few years, the beauty industry has begun to embrace inclusivity while breaking stereotypes of gender, identity and colour more than it had done in the past. Through this new campaign, Kaya aims to focus on self-care to include and involve all genders while liberating them from the judgment they receive for choosing cosmetic treatments.

The campaign aims to encourage couples to have open discussions regarding money – something that is often overlooked in the early days of courtship but something that is very crucial in the long-term health of any relationship.
The trouble the campaign suggests lies in what people think & ‘discussing money” means. The campaign emphasizes that talking about money isn’t about asking someone’s salary or bank details on the 3rd date, but about gauging what their own attitude & behavior is towards money and whether it syncs up with their partner.
To this end, the campaign features a scientifically designed Money Personality Quiz, which helps each individual assess their attitude & behavior when it comes to money and help discover compatibility with their partner. The campaign will also feature a live Q&A session with relationship experts to provide answers to all the tough questions and tools needed to manage the unspoken and hidden element of any healthy relationship – money.
