One of the biggest days of the year is Valentine’s Day, naturally because it is the lover’s holiday.  This day is celebrated on February 14th and it is traditional for lovers to exchange gifts.  It is almost a dedicated day for couples all around the world, celebrating their love with the gifts, flowers, chocolates, etc.

Valentine’s Day flowers began as a tradition in the 17th century, since roses, which represent love in all its forms, were the flowers of choice for the Day.  The rose is supposed to be the favorite flower of Venus, the Goddess of Love, because it stood for strong feelings. As a result, lovers began giving flowers to those they cared about to show their love for each other, which often knew no bounds.

It’s an absolute truth that money doesn’t buy love, but there is much more to gift giving than we are aware of.  Scientists have found that gift giving is humanity’s universal behavior and is a form of reciprocity or exchange that helps build relationships.

The real value of gifting is hidden behind the shallow surface of exchanging material objects.


Valentine’s Day, also known as Saint Valentine’s Day is celebrated across the world on February 14th.  There are various stories behind why we celebrate Valentine’s day, the one that is most popular is this one.

The story dates back to the 3rd century. It was the time when Romans were converting to Christianity.  However, the then emperor, Claudius II was a non-christian and had very strict rules for the Roman Christians, one of which was that they can’t marry.  He believed that this way, the Roman soldiers will remain devoted to their duty towards Rome.

Saint Valentine, a Catholic priest was completely against it. He started to get these soldiers married in secret ceremonies.  Later, he was caught and jailed, but by then he earned a reputation for being a saviour of love.

It is said that in jail, he fell in love with the jailer’s blind daughter. He cured her blindness and just before getting executed, he wrote a love message and signed it as ‘from your Valentine’. This happened on February 14th of the year 270.  Two hundred years later, the pope of the Roman Catholic Church proclaimed this day as Saint Valentine’s day.  This is widely assumed as the main reason for celebrating the valentine’s day.

Valentine’s Day is a fixed day on the calendar, and the ancient Roman calendar included a mid-February holiday even before St. Valentine’s time. That holiday (arguably the origin of Valentine’s Day), called Lupercalia, celebrated fertility, and may have included a ritual in which men and women were paired off by choosing names from a jar.  In Ancient Greece, people observed a mid-winter celebration for the marriage of the god Zeus and the goddess Hera.  Some historians wonder if these traditions may have influenced the way we now celebrate February 14.

Gift giving is not just a manifestation of modern consumerism, in its core, it is a manifestation of being sociable.  Relationships are a key part of every individual’s life, as well as society as a whole, and through gift-giving we establish a relationship where there was none before or re-establish an existing relationship; as Bronislav Malinowski, a well-known 20th-century anthropologist stated, reciprocity is an implicit part of gifting.

What’s also important is that the value of the gift doesn’t lie in its monetary value, but in its symbolism.  You don’t give money, you give attention, devotion, love.  You don’t have to buy a gift, you can bake it, cook it or DIY it or you can even just write a heartfelt personal message on a blank piece of paper.


Though we say that every day is Valentine’s day if we love our partner, the existence of Valentine’s day is so much popular just for the way it is celebrated in the eyes of love.  The feeling of keeping the relationship alive for a long period of time is what the day is all about. In the true sense, there is nothing extraordinary in the day until you make it that way.

Celebrating Valentine’s day is just like celebrating your wedding anniversary.  Though you love your spouse throughout the year, the wedding anniversary is just the way you let him/her feel that the love is the same and how you want to deepen the relationship by strengthening the vows.

It just takes some Valentine’s day romantic gifts or some creative Valentine’s gift ideas, and you can take your relationship to a new level.
