Each February 14 Americans celebrate love on Valentine's Day by exchanging cards and gifts of affection. Valentine's Day is named for two early saints and gained popularity in the U.S. in the 1840s with the widespread popularity of Valentine's Day cards.
Traditional gifts exchanged at Valentine's Day are heart-shaped boxes full of chocolates, love notes, flowers and jewelry. The day is historically reserved for romance and lovers but in recent years has been expanded to include gift-giving among friends and family.
