Do you realize how far back Valentine’s Day goes? The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers showed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards known as “valentines.”
We love the idea of the unexpected, unique gift…so instead of roses, chocolate, or jewelry, consider one of these ideas from the shop, or come up with one of your own. Unique gifts are more memorable and more cherished than the predictable ones … in the tradition of courtly love!
