The Brief History of Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). In Europe, Saint Valentine's Keys are given to lovers "as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart", as well as to children, in order to ward off epilepsy (called Saint Valentine's Malady).Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards. (Reference:here)

Our Valentine's Day Cards

All of our Cards are A5 printed on textured Cardstock, easy to post (both the size and weight match Royal Mail's Small Letter so a regular ol' 1st or 2nd Class Stamp will do) and come with envelopes - choose either White, Kraft, Pastel Pink, Pastel Blue, Pastel Purple, Grey or Black.

We can add your Personalisation to the front of our Cards and/or an inside message - yes, you can choose both!
