  • Do not give an umbrella or fan in Chinese Valentine’s day - Umbrella or Fan both sound like the one Chinese character “散”, which means leave, separation.
  • Do not share a pear - If you are going to eat pear with your Chinese lover. Remember to eat your own, instead share the same one with him or her. “Share pear” sound like “分离“ in Chinese. It’s also means leaving someone.
  • Do not give a wind chime - “Wind Chimes” are also homophonic of ”separation”.
  • Do not give the green hat to Chinese men - A man with a green hat means a man with a spouse who’s unfaithful to him.
  • Do not give shoes to your lover -  It means you want the person you in the relationship with to walk away or the relationship is going to ends soon. If you want your girl to dress up go out with you in your Chinese Valentine’s day, and you already brought her a sexy high heal. They way to solve the problem is to let her pay you a coin for the shoes.
  • Do not give  handkerchief to your Taiwanness lover - To some Taiwanness, “送巾,断(离)根”. Give handkerchief to someone means leave someone forever. 

In India - The most fantastic gift of love is the Taj Mahal in India. It was built by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan as a memorial to his wife, who died in childbirth. Work on the Taj began in 1634 and continued for almost 22 years and required the labor of 20,000 workers from all over India and Central Asia.

In the Philippines - In 2011, a party-list group in the Philippines gave out free condoms on Valentine's Day as part of an effort to inform people on reproductive rights and secure support for the passage of the Reproductive Health Bill.
