One version suggests Valentine’s Day was to supersede the pagan Roman holiday of the Lupercalia in which boys drew the names of girls to become their partner for a feast and dance.
By the 1600s, the custom of drawing names died out and was replaced with giving gifts. First it was flowers, then jewelry. It was even thought that giving a young lady a pair of gloves was the equivalent of a marriage proposal.
At DECLÉOR, gifts that reveal your natural beauty, infuse your skin with lasting radiance and add a little romance into your day have always been our favorites for Valentine’s Day.
Which ones are our favorites? Here’s what the experts at DECLÉOR LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for her and him for Valentine’s Day.
