Aristotle once said: “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”
The most relevant history of Valentine’s.
I love the concept of Valentine’s. The most modern version of today's Valentine’s derives from the idea of writing valentine’s cards which to me, are the true chronicle of love. The very personal communication between people.
In Great Britain, Valentine’s Day began to be popularly celebrated around the 17th century. By the middle of the 18th century, it was common for friends and lovers of all social classes to exchange small tokens of affection or handwritten notes, Sometimes the notes were beautiful, sometimes tragic and sometimes they were rejections or proposals… The treasures which were kept in albums or between pages of books for many years.
The first mail-posted Valentine on record dates to 1806 and shows the sailor with his wife. He came back from his journey and from then he will stay and live with her in peace.
Thanks to the new technologies by 1900 printed cards began to replace written letters. Ready-made cards were an easy way for people to express their emotions in a time when direct expression of one’s feelings was discouraged. Cheaper postage rates also contributed to an increase in the popularity of sending Valentine’s Day greetings.
Ideas for the most personal Valentine’s gift.
Although, this day Valentine’s Day became very commercialised, the background of it is, undoubtely, romantic and beautiful.
I believe that if we let our creative spirit to open, our experience of this celebration doesn’t have to be associated with crowded restaurants and excessive prices. When it comes to Valentine’s, it’s the thought that counts. What would you say for a glass of bubbly in the bath with your loved one? Good things often come in small packages, and the ruby red crystal champagne glasses are the perfect way to enjoy a glass of champagne in luxury.

Alternatively, handcrafting a beautiful card that will be so personal that we would want to keep it for years will guarantee a wow effect.
If we complain about the lack of time, how about taking your love for a dance class in the evening for romantic bachata or kizomba? For me, the most sensual type of dance just after rumba…
The words of love
Authors, poets and playwrights have been trying to capture love in words for thousands of years. Here are a few of suggestions for my favourite quotes which you can steel inspirations from to compose your Valentine’s.
My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.- William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.- Leo Tolstoy.
“The heart was made to be broken.” Oscar Wilde
Have a beautiful Valentine’s Day everyone! I will be taking a bath sipping the glass of Tattinger in my ruby glasses.
