How did gifting chocolate on Valentine's Day begin?
How Gifting Chocolate for Valentine’s Day became a THING!
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, what better way to sweep your loved one off their feet than with a decadent box of chocolate? The concept itself has been seducing couples since the mid-19th century when cocoa beans and other high-end products were imported from South America.
Thoughtful gifting was (and still is!) an essential part in courtly love as it shows wealth - but nothing comes close to that heartwarming feeling you get from giving or receiving some delicious chocolates!
In Victorian times they even referred to them as "a woman's best friend" and if a man gave his sweetheart chocolate on February 14th, then he had effectively declared undying affection for her. Now why not show someone special how much they mean with this timeless romantic gesture?!
Thanks to them for making sure everyone knows how truly romantic a sweet gift can be – now THAT'S amore!
