Valentine’s Day is steeped in history, originally named after a saint.  History shows it has been celebrated since the Middle Ages. The written exchange of messages of love can be traced back to the 1400’s.  The oldest known valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. In addition to the United States, Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France and Australia.

Somewhere near the 1700s American began the tradition of mailing and distributing Valentine’s Day cards. The first mass produced Valentine’s came around 1840 and were very fancy, elaborate creations by Esther A. Howland. According to the Greeting Card Association there are roughly 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards sent each year.

While it is traditional to send chocolates and roses, neither last.  But, Sweet Scented Pillow Pets are the way to send a sweet message in a cuddly stuffed animal with a long lasting scent patch. The subtle scent of strawberry milkshake from Strawberry Milkshake Cow or the delicious yummy scent of bubble gum from Bubble Gum Piggy will delight children, tweens, teenagers, college children and beyond.

Pair with a home-made card and you are on your way to a fun and festive holiday.
