Personalised Valentines day cards are great for this special occasion as they can be made to be truly unique and should delight the people receiving their cards for Valentines day. Saint Valentines day cards and gifts have been popular now for hundreds of years.
It is believed that Saint Valentine was originally called Saint Valentinus who was an early Christian martyr. In the mid 14th century the father of English literature, Geoffrey Chaucer is recognised as the first writer to associate February 14 and St Valentines day with romance. A part of his poem to celebrate the anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II and Anne of Bohemia, reads, "For this was on Saint Valentine's Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate."
Shakespeare also mentioned Saint Valentines Day in his classic play, Hamlet. In act IV, scene 5, Ophelia said:
"Tomorrow is Saint Valentines day,
  All in the morning betime,
  And I, a maid at your window,
  To be your Valentine."
By the 15th century the occasion was being celebrated with St Valentines greeting cards, flowers and confectionery; and the rest, as we say, is history!
