Tis’ the season of love! Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show appreciation by getting the perfect gift for the ones you love, including yourself. For years dating back to beyond the 17th century, people across Europe celebrated Valentine’s Day by writing love letters, committing doting deeds, and giving recognition to cupid for being responsible for the love in their lives.

However, as time passed Valentine’s Day became more significant and profound, leading to bigger deeds of love being created, bought, and delivered.
