Why Do People Give Gifts on Valentine’s Day?
Valentine’s Day gift giving dates all the way back to 3rd century Rome following the execution of a priest now known by St. Valentine and formerly Valentinus. At this point in history, marriage was illegal as Emperor Claudius II declared that single man performed as better soldiers during battle. Legends claim that Valentinus was a priest who disagreed with Emperor Claudius II, and would wed young couples in secret. Since then, every February 14th people in countries across the world celebrate romance, later showing their love for their partners, friends and family through exchanging heart-themed cards, candy, and flowers.
Symbolic of Venus, the Goddess of Love, the rose is often given as a gift on Valentine’s Day to express one’s love and romantic feelings towards another. In the 14th century, Charles the Duke of Orleans, famously wrote a series of love letters to his beloved wife will imprisoned in the Tower of London over Valentine’s Day. While love letters were frowned upon into the 16th century, by the 19th century they were considered a common and thoughtful way to express love towards one another. Chocolate was later introduced as a popular gift, when it was brought over from the Old World to the New World by the Spanish. Chocolate was found to possibly be an aphrodisiac, thus making it the candy of choice to gift on the romantic day.
Later, in the 1800s, the rise of gift giving on Valentine’s increased in popularity as people were able to send packages and letters to their loved ones through the mail. Now, over 2 centuries later, Givopoly makes spreading love and romance easy, despite the distance, this Valentine’s Day.
