Love is in the air- valentine´s day is coming soon... Every February 14, candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. I was totally overwhelmed by all the advertisement, special offers and expectations I got the last weeks and days. I thought about all the different opportunities – but what would I like to get? What would I like to give? Moreover, who is this mysterious Saint, and where did these traditions come from?
I have read many articles about all the different stories and traditions. According to the one I like the most, a legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually, sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he had fallen in love with a young girl–possibly his jailor’s daughter–who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. More interesting facts about Valentine's day you can find here.
Whatever the traditions are- For me Valentine’s Day is a time when people show feelings of love, affection and friendship.
I was so inspired by all the impressions and feelings that I chose to design a poster with all the places I have been with the ones I love the most. I decided to make myself a present to search the pictures and to remember all the memories and to give one to each person I love. I´ve ordered the posters here. It´s a print partner service I know from business. The quality is great and it´s easy to handle. I´m really happy with the decision I have made.
I´m looking forward to seeing how my partner, family and best friends will like my Valentine´s gift. If not, they will definitely love my blueberry-cheese-cake muffins <3…
Well, I think the best strategy or way to find the right gift or the right thing to do is the same as in business - always choose the one you would like for yourself. It´s something very individual- like a dream job J and your “Valentine” will love it.
Lots of Love,
