Valentine's Day With Total Merchandise

Valentine's Day is a celebration that goes back in history. It's named after Saint Valentine, but no-ones really sure who he was. The Catholic Church recognises at least three different Saints named Valentine and there are a variety of stories to go with them. Some believe Valentine was a priest who carried on to marry young couples even after a Roman emperor outlawed it. While others believe Valentine helped prisoners escape from Roman prisons and that he wrote the first valentines card to the jailor's daughter.

Others believe that Valentine's Day was manufactured by various companies, including confectionary companies, wine companies and card retailer, Hallmark. While some disapprove of Valentine's Day, not celebrating it as it's created by corporations may not go down so well with loved ones... If Valentine's Day really was invented by a card company, we've got to admit that it was a profitable idea as roughly 150 million Valentine's Day cards are exchanged every year - that's some serious income for both card makers and postage firms.

"Roughly 150 million Valentine's Day cards are exchanged every year."

With Valentine's Day around a month away, now's the time to start thinking about promotional products for the event! It might seem early, but here are some of our top Valentine's Day branded product picks!

Chocolates

Chocolates are a classic Valentine's Day gift and at Total Merchandise, we have a lot to choose from. Our bite-sized heart-shaped chocolates are obvious valentines promotional gifts due to their bright colouring, whereas the more luxury option (pictured right) conveys a sense of elegance.

Prosecco

Enjoy a Valentine's meal with a crisp sparkling wine. Or even better - enjoy it with a crisp bottle of [YOUR BRAND NAME HERE] sparkling wine. Prosecco is the perfect gift from a luxury brand and can help a client or customer to recall your brand when they need it.

Printing is available in full colour in an 85mm by 85mm square area on the front.

Comedy

Valentine's Day doesn't have to be taken too seriously. That's why we love this (somewhat) anatomically correct heart-shaped stress ball. We reckon this could make a good Valentine's Day promotional gift for companies and organisations based in science and medicine industries!

These products are just a fraction of our Valentine's Day selection so we recommend you browse the whole Valentine's category.
