    Each day is a gift, open it, celebrate it, enjoy it – Valentine’s Day 2020

    Today Valentine’s day is a widely celebrated commercial holiday, raking in 20 billion dollars in America last year alone. Men and women purchase and receive flowers, candies and gifts and share romantic outings across the globe. But did you know that some countries celebrate the holiday of love a little differently?

    In Wales, the Welsh also celebrate their own special version of Valentine’s Day on January 25th. The special holiday is called St. Dwynwen’s Day and honours the Welsh saint of love. Every year couples exchange cards and gifts just like Valentine’s Day, but another common and traditional gift given at this time is a Welsh lovespoon. The lovespoon is an ornate hand-carved spoon adorned with meaningful symbols, meant to be a classic Welsh token of love.

    In Japan it’s customary for women to be the gift givers on Valentine’s Day. Women across Japan purchase so much chocolate for the important men in their lives that half of all annual chocolates sales in Japan are made during the weeks that precede Valentine’s Day. Men are then expected to return the favour and gift back to the women on a special Japanese holiday named White Day on March 14th.

    In the Philippines they take Valentines Day romance to the next level! Every year many cities and towns are host to mass Valentine’s Day weddings across the country. Tourists and locals alike come to participate by the thousands to be wed in massive group-wedding celebrations on Valentine’s Day.

    Flowers are a perfect timeless gift for Valentine’s Day 2020

    A simple and elegant expression that harmonizes perfectly with whatever gesture or occasion you are
    gifting for. The history of giving flowers as gifts can be dated back to the ancient Greeks where flowers
    were used as common offerings to gods and temples. Over time the practice of gifting flowers extended to
    a loving, romantic indication that the person receiving the flowers was revered as an earthly god or
    goddess. It’s no surprise that a tradition like this has lasted through the ages and is now associated with
    romantic holidays like Valentines Day!

    Both a hand-picked bunch from the wild or a professionally arranged bouquet can be equally beautiful
    and meaningful, but the type of flowers you are giving can have significant meaning.
    Did you know that many mythologies and historical cultures have passed down tidbits of what sentiments
    are expressed with certain flowers? Camellia, carnation or chamomile, they all mean something different!
    This is why roses are the most common Valentines Day flower. A beautiful red rose is your safest bet for
    the most romantic Valentines Day gift idea.

    Be sure to pair your Valentines Day surprise with an elegant, romantic red rose. The timeless and
    traditional symbol of love and desire for the earthly god or goddess in your life!
    At Alexandria Gifts we offer a plethora of beautiful and romantic flower gift baskets, that will make your celebration unforgettable.
