Valentine’s Day was first associated with romantic love in the High middle ages by Geoffrey Chaucer and his friends. Courtly love had only begun to flourish, and by the 15th century had become an occasion for lovers to express romance with flowers, confectionary, and cards. The shape of the heart, doves, and Cupid were all early symbols of romance, and have exploded today to become one of the most popular holidays of the year.
Today, Valentine’s Day, ever-present on the 14th of February each year, is a special day to show love. Whether you are gifting a valentine to a partner of years, showering your new boy/girlfriend with love on their first Valentine’s Day with you, or taking on the trait of a secret admirer, it is a wonderful opportunity to show the special person in your life how much you love them, how important they are to you, and how much you care. Making them ecstatically happy is as simple as a gesture which takes mere minutes to organise- and at 1300 FLOWERS™, we have all the options here to help you make a long lasting memory.
