Valentine's Day

On Valentine’s Day, we celebrate love – with sweet words and precious gifts for the one we hold dear. It is on February 14th, a day dedicated to A Holy Day for Lovers. Make this Valentine’s Day extra special by spoiling your better half with a Valentine’s Day gift from Royal Copenhagen, which they can enjoy every single day, year after year. Or cook a special dinner on the day, and serve it on a beautifully decorated table. You’ll find lots of inspiration below.

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 called Valentine. When the Roman Emperor Claudius II had a hard time recruiting soldiers for his army in 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 he was arrested and later executed on February 14th. Thereafter the Roman-Catholic church submitted him to sainthood as Saint Valentine, the guardian of lovers.
