On this special day, that is celebrated in honor of Saint Valentine, we have the perfect suggestions for valentines day gifts for boyfriends and girlfriends. Valentine was a Catholic priest who lived in Rome in the 3rd Century. According to some popular legends, St. Valentines played a crucial role in uniting many lovers in the 3rd century in Rome. He started marrying many Roman soldiers in secret ceremonies. It was the time when many Roman men were taking to Christianity which was seen as a crime by the Roman emperor Claudius II. When the king found out that St. Valentine was marrying these soldiers in secret Christian ceremonies, he was imprisoned. In the prison, he won the affection of all the prisoners with his kindness and particularly of the jailer's blind daughter whom he supposedly cured. St. Valentine's was executed on 14 February in the year 270.
Some historians also believe that the roots of Valentine's day lie in the ancient Roman spring festival which was celebrated with much pomp and show on 15th February. With the coming of Christianity, the holiday was moved to 14th February and it was only with time that the festival got its romantic reputation.
