Treat yourself: Students use Valentine's Day to shower themselves with gifts

But, I know it also brings unrealistic fantasies and expectations of others.

From the legend and stories of a man living in the third century? Another theory is that St Valentine could be the Bishop of Terni, who was martyred on Rome's outskirts, again, by Claudius II. There's no better time than the future, so make the most out of being single.

After years of inattention, I remembered Valentine's Day! While in prison, Valentine fell in love with the blind daughter of the jailer.

Valentine's Day is when we are together. During his stay in a Roman prison for helping Christians escape, Valentine sent the first "valentine". The Tao Terraces and By the Blue are flawless for couples who love solitude. Try stepping out of your comfort zone and take time out to explore new artistic outlets.

If your valentine is a fantasy lover with more of literary sense, then the right gift is something with that cinematic touch. To celebrate the death anniversary of Father Valentine's death, the Church replaced the pagan ritual with a Holy Day (February 14th) honoring St. Valentine. The festival was celebrated by sacrificing goats and a dog. The hide of the goat was cut into strips, dipped into sacrificial blood and gently slapped onto crop fields and single, young women.

Earlier this month, Belgian confection maker Godiva took aim at the Japanese custom of "giri choco", or obligation chocolate, that pressures women to give candies to their male colleagues and bosses. Also shares with whom they would be celebrating. To all the people who are in love - all the best, and for those who aren't - all the best in finding love too!

None of these legends are clear due to the amount of time that has passed and lack of sufficient amount of written proof, but they all portray a man who was sympathetic, heroic and a romantic figure. So for me Valentine's Day has really some significance and I enjoy the day with my special ones.

I still spent a lot of money on gifts and planned an elaborate all-day and night date in Cleveland, of course. In case you want to indulge in a little bit of PDA on social media, you can totally update your Facebook status with one of these messages and tag your beloved.

From its inception and popularization as it became a "Hallmark Holiday", the day itself has become one that some dread, while others adore. Self-care is a really important ritual for emotional health and studies have show that it can help you to manage the symptoms of anxiety, depression and more. Even Taco Bell has specials and discounts for the lovers' day. "I'm sure I'm going to love it, just for being with you", she said.

The platform released a list of favorite gifts for Valentine's Day. While we love all those things, and will certainly be giving them to our loved ones, perhaps we should make Valentine's Day about more than just gifts.

If you have not yet prepared for Valentine's Day, time is running out. While most Americans will shower their loved-ones with candy this year, spending a total of $1.8 billion, NRF states most USA consumers will spend their money on jewelry for their loved ones - $4.7 million to be exact.

The worst Valentine's Day tech gift, according to CNET, is any fitness device. Nonetheless, 97% of transactions around Valentine's Day are still made in person with only 3% of gifts purchased online.

This "love notebook" is effective, Heinold says, because it speaks to her love language - a theory on how different personalities crave certain types of affection from their significant other.

Various programmes by many organisations all over the country have been chalked out to celebrate the day through sharing love to others- such as sharing love with street children, concerts, fairs and so on. He always makes her white paper roses and gets her chocolates and my siblings help make them a card.
