Sweetheart Bouquet - Same Day Delivery

Sweet Heart Bouquet

Valentine’s Day History

“The Young Man’s Valentine Writer” published in 1797 by a British publisher, became quite popular. It was a tremendous help to young men that needed a little assistance with crafting love letters and sentimental verses for their sweethearts.  Due to its notoriety, professional printers started producing cards and sketches.  Then by the 19th century, a great number of factories in England began to produce what was referred to as paper Valentines. Eventually soon after, fancier versions of  Valentines were produced. These were made with lace and ribbons and became very popular in England.

In 1847 an woman by the name of Esther Howland sold the first embossed paper lace Valentines. These had been produced in large quantity in the United States.  Ms. Howland’s father operated a book and stationary store. He allowed her to display and sell the paper lace Valentines in his store. One of her father’s business associates inspired Ms. Howland when he sent her an English Valentine.  Her inspiration was so great that she decided to begin importing paper lace and floral decorations.

It was not until around 1868 when a British company by the name of Cadbury created a delectable heart shaped box filled with chocolates, that sweets became a major draw for Valentine’s Day. Cadbury called their product “Fancy Boxes”.

With the explosive popularity of the Internet, millions of people now look to the convenience of using it to send digital messages of Valentine’s Day greetings. Such digital Valentine’s Day gifts as e-cards, love coupons and printable greeting cards are some of the most common uses of the Internet. A study performed several years ago renders a statistic that an estimated 15 million e-valentines were sent annually.

There are an estimated 190 million valentines sent each year in the United States. At least one half of those are typically given to children. Then if you include the valentines that are exchanged by students during valentines school activities, the total number of valentines rises to a staggering 1 billion. Naturally kids love their teachers so these wonderful adults are the recipients of a high number of valentines.  Current estimates are that the average spend on valentines in the U.S. is $131 per person.

Flowerama Columbus has delicious chocolates and sweets for your special person on Valentine’s Day!
