Happy Valentine’s Day!

Updated: Mar 21, 2023

February 14th is the perfect excuse to keep gifting after Christmas and right before Easter. The origin of this celebration is uncertain. Some say that it dates back to Ancient Rome, with the death of the priest Valentín. Others attribute its origin to the 14th century English poet, Geoffrey Chaucer, who in the lines of his poem The Parliament of the Fowls mentions this date:

“For this was on Saint Valentines day, / When every bird cometh ther to choose his mate.”


Whatever its origin may be, what is certain is that nowadays on Valentine’s Day many countries celebrate love in all its forms. Romantic love towards a companion, platonic love towards friends or, last but not least, selflove.

However, how do we express said love? According to the writer and philosopher Gary Chapman, there are five different love languages. That is, how we love and expect to be loved back. They are the following: physical touch, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, and gift giving. Which one is yours? No matter your love language, Valentine’s Day is the quintessential gift-giving day. Among the most popular gifts are bouquets of flowers, stuffed animals and chocolate. Precisely the last one, in all its shapes and forms is the most famous among love birds.


From Libros de las Malas Compañías we propose a delicious gift for you, your partner or your friend. Gift words with our book From Cocoa to Chocolate, myths and legends. This book written by Charo Pita and illustrated by Fernando Vázquez is the second of our new collection ‘Cravings’. When reading it you will learn about chocolate through myths and legends from the pre-Columbian, African and European cultures.








We are sure your mouth will water, so why not include a box of chocolates with the gift? This way you will be mixing a very original gift along with one of the classics, you will make use of two of the love languages (gift giving and words) and, on top of all that, you will be gifting a sensory and intellectual experience.


A success without doubt.
