Although it may seem cliché to send your special someone flowers for Valentine’s Day, this time honored tradition is still one of the best ways to show your affection on this holiday. Flowers of all kinds are symbols of beauty and love, so it is quite natural to send them as gifts on a holiday that is all about love. In addition, flowers appeal to more than one of our senses so that they evoke positive and warm feelings that everyone wants to share on Valentine’s Day.
While red roses are always the number one choice of men to send to their sweethearts, roses come in many other beautiful colors, each of which symbolizes something special. Even though red roses are the traditional rose that symbolizes love and beauty, pink roses are also a common pick for Valentines day flowers.
Pink roses are known to be symbols of appreciation, admiration, joy, and happiness. Therefore, pink roses are a perfect selection for a new, blossoming relationship.
If you are already married, or your relationship has already reached the level of deep connection, white roses may be a great gift as they symbolize honor and worthiness. In addition, white roses are a symbol of innocence and purity, which is why white roses are typically used in weddings. Therefore, white roses would be a practical option in a relatively new relationship — one that is still in the very early innocent phases.
Yellow roses typically represent friendship, but they are also a symbol of happiness. These would be great Valentines day flowers for someone who hopes to turn a friendship into a more intimate relationship.
Red, pink, white, and yellow roses are the most common choices, but people who may want to step outside the norm for rose color may want to look into orange, lavender, or peach roses.
Orange roses symbolize desire, enthusiasm, and passion. Lavender roses are a symbol of enchantment and are the perfect choice in a relationship built on the premise of “love at first sight”.
Finally, peach roses represent gratitude and sincerity. Because of their beauty and majesty, roses are always a fabulous choice of Valentines day flowers, no matter what color is chosen.
Although roses are the most popular Valentines day flowers, other types of flowers and floral arrangements are just as beautiful and also make great gifts.
Carnations are a very common flower choice, particularly because they can be ordered in nearly any color under the rainbow. Carnations are most commonly used in combination with other flowers in lovely arrangements designed for any occasion, including Valentine’s Day. Lilies, daisies, and chrysanthemums, all in a variety of types and colors, are often combined with carnations to create immaculate arrangements that can meet the desires and specifications of any customer and are certain to pull at the heartstrings of any recipient.
Those who may still think that flowers are just too traditional for a Valentine’s Day gift may want to consider adding something extra special to the flower arrangement to make it stand out. Of course chocolates or other candy are also a traditional Valentine’s day gift choice, so combining flowers and candy on Valentine’s Day would make the gift even more special. Adding a stuffed animal or hiding jewelry inside the Valentines day flowers will also add some flare to your gift for your special someone. For people looking to spice up their relationship, tying some sexy lingerie around a beautiful arrangement of roses will definitely send a clear message.
Whether you are planning to surprise your sweetheart at work or show up at her door with a bouquet, flowers are always a great way to tell your loved one that she is special. Roses can send the perfect message about how you are feeling about someone special. Carnations, roses, and other flowers can be combined in beautiful arrangements that express exactly how you feel. Regardless of which type of flowers you choose, your Valentine will feel special and loved when she sees the beauty of the flowers and smells their striking fragrance.
