A Better Expression of Love for Valentine's Day

St. Valentine is believed to have been a real person, a Roman priest killed in the 3rd century by emperor Claudius II for helping Christian couples marry. Interestingly, it may have been the poet and author Geoffrey Chaucer who invented the tradition of Valentine’s Day as a celebration of love; in 1375, the first mention of it appeared in his poem “Parliament of Foules.” In Europe around this time, February 14th was also believed to be the time when birds began mating. Thus Valentine’s Day was born.

According to the Greeting Card Association, approximately one billion cards are sent each year for Valentine’s Day! Other traditional gifts are flowers and chocolate, of course. But if you want your gift to be a little more special, we recommend this warm and cozy expression of your love. We guarantee that every time your sweetie wraps herself or himself in this reversible Merino blanket, you'll be thought of with love.
