Each year on February 14, couples show their devotion and love by exchanging cards, chocolates, candy, flowers, jewelry, gifts and Valentines. This day of romance is more than a date on your calendar to remind you to show a reminder of your love to your love. Valentine’s Day has origins in the ancient Roman holiday Lupercalia.
Today, approximately 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year, making it the second-most popular holiday for card exchanging, after Christmas.
While chocolates and flowers remain popular Valentine’s Day gifts, if you’re looking to gift something more unique, we have some South Okanagan inspired ideas your love will… well… love.
