Where does the tradition come from? What many don’t know: Jewelers and florists didn’t invent Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day comes from medieval England, bringing lovers closer together since the 15th century. Even back then, people gave each other one or two Valentine gifts as a token of love.

How is Valentine’s Day celebrated all over the world today? Today, the day of love is celebrated differently: in Europe and America, couples give each other gifts, in the spirit of the classic Valentine’s day. In South Africa people celebrate in public, in Japan – women sometimes give gifts to their bosses. The custom to attach a lock to a bridge comes from Italy and the Finns celebrate it as a “day of friendship”, where they offer presents to those dear to them. In Serbian tradition, Valentine day is celebrated as patron saint day – Saint Trifun. This saint is the protector of vine and vine producers, but as a guardian of marital love and loyalty.
What all of the countries have in common: You show your loved ones how much you care with a little Valentine’s Day gift.
