Bring the Love to You — Valentine’s Traditions From Around the World


As we approach the time of year when we’re supposed to be getting up close and personal with our special others, we’re once again having to keep a bit more distance. Not exactly what we expected on Valentine’s Day. But romance is all about being unpredictable, right? When life gives you lockdown (or limited travel ops at least)… spice up your love life with some unusual Valentine’s Day traditions from around the world.

Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve

We’ve all heard the phrase, and sometimes it’s impossible to keep our feelings in check (especially at this time of year). But in South Africa, it’s taken literally. If you’re feeling plucky, take a stab at pinning the name of your loved one to the sleeve of your T-shirt. Who knows where things will go from there?

One for the Ladies

It's not only the girls who love to feast on a box of chocolates. Take inspiration from Japan where women give their men chocolatey gifts to express their love on Valentine’s Day. And if you’re peckish, just hope for a man who likes to share.

Mingles for Singles

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples. And in South Korea, this is celebrated too. Who needs chocolate and flowers when you can get dressed up, mingle with your single friends, and slurp up a bowl of tasty noodles instead?

Spoons of Love

Well, this Welsh tradition brings a whole new take on the term "spooning". On the "Day of San Dwynwen", in late January, couples carve and exchange ornate handcrafted spoons as an expression of love. If the arts and crafts go well it looks like soup might be on the menu this year.

Cold Feet

A romantic stroll is a classic Valentine’s Day venture. Chirping birds, a radiant sunset — what could be more idyllic? In Slovenia, it’s common to do just this. But while you bring your loved one along, it’s recommended to leave your shoes and socks at home. Now’s not the time to get cold feet…

Wake and Bake

The bigger the heart, the stronger the love. Take inspiration from a modern-day German tradition and treat your SO with an oversized gingerbread heart. Bake it from scratch as a fun activity. Not a wiz in the kitchen? Just nip out to the bakery. If you’re sneaky about it, no one has to know.
