Stamp of luxury a.k.a. this year`s Valentine`s Day done in style

Feast of St. Valentine's Day celebrates love and affection between partners. February 14 directly encourages you to make time for yourself with your dear half and celebrate this day as you like. However, if you want to include a gift, we will advise you on how to give love with a touch of luxury.

The legacy of the canonized martyr

The roots of Valentine's Day can be found in ancient Rome when the so-called Lupercalia associated with the beginning of spring and the time of purification and fertility was celebrated in February. The boys pulled the girls' names from the urn of love, and the chosen one was to become his wife the following year. According to historians, the specific designation of St. Valentine's Day is then linked to events concerning the Bishop of Terni, whose life, however, remains shrouded in ambiguity. Probably two legends of the saints of the same name were merged. According to one of them, Valentine paid for his healing abilities when he miraculously cured a sick boy. He then fell out of favor with Roman senators for his allegedly unfair practices and was sentenced to death.

The second, probably better known, version refers to the reign of Emperor Claudius II, who forbade marriages to his soldiers for fear of staying at home with their families and beloved halves and being able to take part in his military campaigns. Priest Valentine resisted this order and secretly married couples in love. He was subsequently arrested for this act and executed on 14 February. Today, people in many countries around the world commemorate his death by spending a romantic evening together, giving each other presents, postcards, and sweets.

Although the feast of St. Valentine's Day is often criticized for commerciality, thanks to the beautiful idea and courageous deed of Valentine's Day priest, this day is a popular holiday for couples in love. No matter how the couples decide to celebrate this day, a well-chosen gift that will please a loved one is a pleasant bonus of a beautiful evening. Here are some carefully selected tips for gifts from the luxury segment.

Candles from the Czech brand Meadows saturate the interior with the sounds of crackling wood and turn your home into a luxury property and a romantic oasis. A unique collaboration with another traditional Czech company, the Rückl glassworks, created a collection called Love Letter, which is decorated with love inscriptions. You will find iconic candles and diffusers with the delicate scent of Meadows made of pure crystal. The edition is also complemented by beautiful vases.
