The month of love and friendship is here! Every February 14th, Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world with great enthusiasm and joy. And for many people it is a very special date to share a day full of love, friendship and complicity with that special person, whether it is your partner or your best friend.
The origin of this worldwide celebration dates back to the Roman Empire where Saint Valentine, patron saint of lovers, was a priest sentenced for secretly celebrating marriages of young lovers.
And about Valentine’s Day gifts, the most traditional are usually flowers, greeting cards, chocolates, a bottle of champagne, perfumes and even marriage proposals.
Some work more with their imagination and plan experiences, trips, romantic getaways, jacuzzi, spa, massages, climbing, hiking or risky adventures full of emotions for this special day.
And others consider that the best gift someone who loves you can give you is to spend time with you, because time is what we value most, the most valuable resource we have. A romantic dinner, an impromptu picnic on the terrace, a walk on the beach or an afternoon at the cinema at home can become special moments full of love.
Listen to your heart and enjoy Valentine’s Day with your favourite person!
