Valentine’s Day is historically a bit of a hybrid between an ancient Roman fertility festival and a Christian tradition; blended over the years to result in the holiday we know today. Although is believed that expressions of love have officially been exchanged on a specific day since the Middle Ages, the practice didn’t become a tradition in the U.S. until Esther A. Howland began designing and marketing the first mass-produced valentines. Created with lace, ribbons, and “photo scraps”, these cards were the ancestors to the estimated 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards now exchanged annually on Valentine’s Day.

Red roses convey eternal love; ideal for engaged and married couples alike. The more stems included, it is said, the more serious the commitment. If you’d like to send a gift that epitomizes all that is Valentine’s Day, add a teddy bear, chocolates, and a sentimental balloon – all of the most popular Valentine’s Day treats in one delivery!
