The Heart of the Matter on Valentines Day

When giving a present on Valentines day the traditional symbol has always been the heart and an arrow.  Even mentioned in song where 'Çupid shot an arrow through my heart'.

Cupid in classical mythology was the son of Venus, goddess of love and Mars the god of war.  It was said that if Cupid shot an arrow through your heart that you would fall hopelessly in love with whoever he chose for you.

The imagery continues to this day on Valentines cards, objects and jewellery.  At Top Banana there are many items that still hold this romantic theme.   

Here in Tetbury we are the best location for romantics in search of the right present for the special day.
