Should you give your loved one a gift on Valentine’s Day? For those of us wondering why we are supposed to give gifts on Valentine’s Day, let me tell you why.
Valentine’s Day became associated with love and romance. It appeared in the writings of Chaucer in 1382. With the medieval period came a new focus on chaste courtly love. Knights would give roses to their maidens and celebrate their beauty in songs from afar.
But sugar was still a valuable product in Europe, so there was no talk of exchanging candy gifts. By the 1840s, the idea of celebrating Valentine’s Day with romantic love had won over most of the English-speaking world. It was Cupid’s golden age.
During this period came Richard Cadbury, heir of a British chocolate manufacturing family and in charge of sales at a crucial point in its history. Richard saw an excellent marketing opportunity for the new chocolates and started selling them in beautifully decorated boxes that he designed.
Cadbury advertised the boxes as having multiple purposes: When the chocolates were gone, the box was so pretty that it might be used to store mementos, from locks of hair to love letters. The Victorian-era Cadbury chocolate boxes still in existence, and many are treasured family heirlooms or valuable items prized by collectors.
