Valentine's Day

On Valentine’s Day, we celebrate love – with sweet words and precious gifts to the one we hold dear. It is on February 14th, a day dedicated to A Holy Day for Lovers.

Why we celebrate Valentine’s Day

While historians disagree on the origin, and sources are sparse, the most endearing legend has it that the day is named after a Roman priest named Valentine. When the Roman Emperor Claudius II had a hard time recruiting soldiers for his army during the 3rd century, he forbade young men to get engaged or married. Priest Valentine went ahead and married young couples in secret anyway. It is said that the priest was arrested and later executed on February 14th. Thereafter the Roman-Catholic church submitted him to sainthood as Saint Valentine, the guardian of lovers .

The Perfect Valentine’s Day Present for Her

Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to get your sweetheart something special – something she’ll remember you by every time she looks at it or uses it.

Art Cards

The cards' floral motifs are painted by Danish artist Mette Hannemann, as a loving nod to Royal Copenhagen's connection to the flowers of Denmark and to the painters' unique brush strokes.

One for that special someone - and one for you

The cards are a natural addition to a special gift, but the blue-painted motifs also look beautiful in a frame. The cards are A5 in size.

Send a blue bouquet

The Danish artist Mette Hannemann has created a collection of four Art Cards for Royal Copenhagen. The set with all four cards costs 150 DKK, and will be for sale exclusively in our own stores and on royalcopenhagen.com.
