Valentine’s Day is less than a month away so it’s time to start thinking of the perfect gift to give your special someone. Officially the most romantic day of the year this is the perfect opportunity to show the person that you care the most about just how special they are to you with a thoughtful gift that marks your adoration and love.
St Valentine’s Day originates back to 270 A.D. and has always been on the 14th February as this was the date on which Saint Priest Valentine was executed in Rome. Saint Valentine was a deeply religious man and wholly believed in the sanctity of marriage. He was imprisoned when Emperor Claudius found out that he was performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. It is said that during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius, and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.
The first time that St Valentine’s Day became romantically associated was in the 14th century when courtly love was in abundance. During the 18th century gifts began to be sent on this special day such as flowers, sweets and greeting cards which in these times were called ‘valentines’ , and this was the beginning of ‘Valentine’s Day’ as we know it today.
Here at Reve Diamonds we have a superb selection of gift ideas that are just perfect to give to your loved one on Valentine’s Day. Here are some of our suggestions:
