Legend has it that Valentine's Day began when a saint named Valentinus wrote a letter he signed as "Your Valentine" as a farewell. It was said that it became the first Valentine card and was later on given with sweets for a more romantic gesture. Now, when Valentine's Day is celebrated on February 14, flowers, candies, stuffed toys, and other gifts are given out to lovers and friends as a sign of love. The occasion is just a few weeks away. Are prepared for it? Do you have a gift for your special someone yet? Check out these businesses ready to help you celebrate Valentine's Day with a bang!
