Now that the madness surrounding Christmas and New Year has been long and widely forgotten, it is high time for the next “holiday”. The day of love, Valentine’s Day, is just around the corner. The ideal day for all romantics to declare love to loved ones. In this blog the coolest Valentine’s gift
Nobody really knows exactly where a Valentine’s gift and Valentine’s Day comes from and how it originated. A first theory is that Valentine’s Day is named after a Christian priest, Saint Valentine, who lived in the third century. It seems that there was a law at the time that prohibited soldiers from marrying, because unmarried people would be more willing to die. St. Valentine would have secretly married soldiers. Emperor Claudius II is said to have discovered this and had him executed on February 14, 269. Because of his motto “love conquers all”, he would have died in this way as a martyr for love.
A second theory is that Valentine’s Day comes from the Roman festival of Lupercalia. This festival was celebrated on February 14 in honor of the god of sheep herders, Lupercus. However, this festival was anything but a romantic affair. Valentine’s gift.
But whatever the origins of Valentine’s Day, a special day to celebrate love is of course very beautiful! Holland Design & Gifts is happy to help you choose a gift for the wife or girlfriend.

The Holland scarf from Barentsz Urban Fabric is unique, but the black and white design makes it a wonderful gift for many women. The colored border gives this designer wrap a subtle accent. Moreover, you will receive it in a beautiful gift box, so you don’t have to do anything about it yourself!
