We all know there's no specific time or date to be romantic. After all, celebrating love and romance can be a year long affair. But if there is one date that many look to when making a declaration of love, or simply showing someone you care, it's the 14th February, otherwise known as St. Valentines Day.
The day itself has become a huge day of celebration, but its roots go back hundreds of years. There are countless myths and legends surrounding the day, but it is thought to be originally associated with the commemoration of various early Christian saints in the latter Roman era named Valentine.
The fact that there was more than one St. Valentine is a good indication of the sort of blurring of details that ancient legends often produce when investigating closely. One sure fact is that Valentine's Day is a popular event all over the world, and has grown in prominence to become the ideal time to show romantic love.
A popular way of doing this is to offer gifts to the object of affections. Cards are a popular one; it's estimated that 25 million Valentines Day cards are sent each year in the UK alone. But to really show a romantic side to your loved one, gifts and presents are usually thought of as the way to go.
Here are some ideas for finding the perfect gift for him and her.
