Saint Valentine's Day (also known as Valentine's Day, Feast of Saint Valentine, or Saint Tryphon Day) is a holiday observed on February 14 each year. It's celebrated in many countries around the world, although its not an official holiday in most of them. Each year Riot Games Inc. marks this event with either a champion skin, gift card templates, or ward skins.
Since 2012, new champion skins have been released to celebrate Valentine's Day. Unlike other events (e.g. the Harrowing or Snowdown Showdown) the release of Valentine's Day skins began as permanent additions to the store but have become Legacy as of now (not including the Debonair skins). List of all Valentine's Day Champion skins:
- 2012 Valentine's Day (Legacy)
- 2013 Valentine's Day (Permanent)
- 2014 Valentine's Day (Legacy)
- 2015 Valentine's Day (Legacy)
- 2016 Valentine's Day (Legacy)
- 2017 Valentine's Day (Legacy)
- 2018 Valentine's Day (Legacy)
- 2019 Valentine's Day (Legacy)
- 2020 Valentine's Day
- (Permanent until 2021)
Valentine's Day events in the past have included, but are not limited to:
- Promotional downloadable Valentine's Day cards for the festivity.
- Decorative ward skins to brighten up the map.
- Festive summoner icons to show off to your friends and teammates.
For each Valentine's Day event, there are new summoner icons that one can obtain by various means during the event. For more information on these icons click here. Below is a gallery of all Valentine's Day icons:
For the 2014 Valentine's Day event, Riot released a ward skin to kick off the celebration for the year.
In 2016, Riot created two more festive ward skins in cerebration for the year. In addition, the previous year's ward skin returned for the event.

Valentine's Day 2013
From The Defender of Tomorrow in the Fashion of Today, exclusive to IM
“The room smells of mahogany and warm brandy, and I can tell by the leopard-skin hearthrug that the man I’ve come to interview is well-accustomed to company. They’re finishing the shoot in the foyer where Jayce, the Defender of Tomorrow, has suited up in the high fashion of today. In the meantime, I have free reign of the illustrious inventor’s sitting-room and I’m staring at the newest model of the world-famous Mercury Cannon-Hammer.
Slim and trim, and as stylish as the room I’m standing in, this iteration of Jayce’s signature weapon has refined lines and looks as clean as Piltover’s finests’ sterilized holding cells – not that I’ve seen them, of course. When we met last night, Jayce told me with his trademark wit about the new effects that issue from the cannon’s powerful blasts.
The door swings open and dapper Jayce strides with the effortless grace of someone who has more awards than bottles of wine despite a cellar the size of an Ionian temple. Dressed to the skies with a white overcoat and charming rose boutonniere, Jayce has picked up a confident swagger and a noticeable change in his voice…”
Dressed to the skies with a white overcoat and classy boutonniere, sleek and stylish is ready for Valentine’s Day for 975 RP in the store.

Valentine's Day 2016
BY ROCKET BABY DOLL
Love is in the air! Teemo is blowing kisses instead of darts, Tahm Kench is slipping even more tongue than usual and - whether you’re in bot lane, jungle or top - there’s no escaping Fifty Shades of Graves.
That’s right, it’s coming up on Valentine’s Day, and while nobody is expecting hostilities in League of Legends to cease completely, Summoner’s Rift is as susceptible to the romance of the season as anywhere else.
That’s why we’re pleased to unveil a collaboration with amazingly talented community artist Rachel J Corey, who you may have seen featured in /ALL Chat’s Summoner Showcase last year for her amazing League of Legends fan artwork. Rachel has put together five unique cards so that you can celebrate your love of League throughout your romantic endeavours.
So have a Happy Valentine’s Day - and if you see us on the Rift, feel free to give us a cuddle before you blow our brains out!

Love Is An All-Mid Battlefield
- Sweetheart Xayah and Sweetheart Rakan have a date, but realize sometimes they have to fight for love.
You are cordially—no! Wait—romantically invited on a date with me by the Aphae waterfall.
There will be mood lighting. Swans (SWANS!). And magic. Always magic.
Would you give me the honor of the first dance tonight?
P.S. - I love you!
P.P.S. - Bring chocolate.
