The origins of St Valentine may be shrouded in historical fog but there is nothing foggy about the commercial impacts with about a billion Valentine's Day cards and 50 million roses dispatched every year. It was during the middle of the 18th century that Valentine's started to take off in the UK, with lovers sending sweets and cards adorned with flowers, ribbons and images of cupids and birds.
