Why Do We Give Chocolate On Valentine’s Day?

Why Do We Give Chocolate On Valentine’s Day?

Why should I gift chocolates on valentines day. And Where can I get good chocolates in Mumbai - delivery to my doorstep!

14th February, a working holiday celebrated worldwide as Valentine’s day, there are several plush gifts like perfumes, cards and jewellery that are gifted, yet, chocolate stands as the most traditional and loved gifts of all time. Here are 2 solid reasons - why you can have them as your expression of love!!

1. Releases Endorphins

Chocolate releases endorphins into our body which are responsible for creating desire & energy in the body. Endorphins are the reason we feel HAPPY! These are generally released as a result of exercise called as Happy Hormones, but, chocolates have the same impact on these hormones too!


Chocolate comes from “Theobroma cacao” tree, which in Greek translates as “food for the Gods”. If it’s good enough for the Gods, it must be good for my boy/girlfriend.

2. Psychologically affect humans


Chocolates have the ability to show - sincere apology, express delight and happiness, initiate desire, reflect love, rekindle friendships, and uplift morale.

Chose how you would like to express your emotions..

 Interestingly, there is a tradition in China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, known as White Day.

On February 14th, women give men their gifts.

On March 14th, the men then give their gifts, usually, white chocolate chip cookies, jewellery, white chocolate, white lingerie, and marshmallows.

A general rule states that the return gift should be double, or triple the cost of the Valentine gift.
