When Is Valentine’s Day 2023?
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. This year, Valentine’s Day is on Tuesday 14 February 2023.
The History of Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day wasn’t always hearts, chocolates and flowers. Its origin stems from the Roman festival of Lupercalia, banned in the 5th Century, which worshipped the spring harvest, fertility and encouraged coupling between men and women at random. It’s also connected to the legendary martyrdom of priests and bishops (all named Valentine) c. 270 CE. Each of these martyrs was convicted of, or performed acts of, love. Some sources claim that the poet, Geoffrey Chaucer, originated Valentine’s Day in his poem The Parlement Of Foules. Whoever started it, from around the 14th century, Valentine’s Day became officially associated with Romance. Read more about the history of Valentine’s Day here.
How to Celebrate St. Valentine’s Day
Typically, St. Valentine’s Day is a feast day for the Catholic Church. Religion aside, we’re here to talk about how to celebrate the romance of Valentine’s Day. From finding ways to be romantic and declare your love, to celebrating lifelong or fresh romance with your partner, there are so many ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. You can read more about How To Celebrate Romance here but, for now, let’s focus on: romantic gifts. Our Valentine’s Guide will show you how to pick the best Valentine’s Day Gift and our selection of best Valentine’s Gifts for 2023.
How To Choose The Best Valentine’s Day Gift
Choosing the best Valentine’s gift is a tricksy business but before you start, there are a few things you need:
- Think about who you are gifting. What kind of gesture would they appreciate? A small and thoughtful gift? A grand gesture gift? A long-lasting gift?
- Think about flavour. Do they prefer dark, milk or white chocolate? Do they have a sweet tooth? Boozy or alcohol free? Floral, Caramel, Bittersweet? Gluten Free? Vegan? (We have collections for all of these, so if you’re ready to shop, click away friends).
- Think about design. Would they prefer a box emblazoned with maximalist patterns or a sleek and elegant design?
- Think about your budget? £25, £50, £100, or the sky's the limit? Whatever your budget, bear this in mind while you rifle through our chocolaty treasures.
It might seem a little daunting at first but note down these gifting tidbits and, with our help, you’ll be able to pick the best Valentine’s Day gift.
