If you’re already thinking about Valentine’s Day, and wondering what the perfect flowers would be to give to someone, consider the following blooms.
These flowers and bouquets make lovely gifts for a loved one, whether your intended is a partner, friend, or family member.
Roses are a universal symbol of love, but they don’t need to come in red to show affection. Depending on who you’re buying for, and the type of love you want to share on Valentine’s Day, you can buy a bouquet of various colors of roses. There are dozens of shades of roses to choose from, so have fun picking arrangements in hue combinations that speak of the love you want to express.

Keeping with roses as a symbol of love, you can choose specially designed arrangements with creative placement of roses. Think about asking your florist to make up a bouquet of roses arranged like a heart. Or, consider giving a potted plant with different species and textures of roses incorporated in it.
Wildflowers can be surprising, and fun, flowers to receive. They’re not your typical Valentine’s Day arrangement, so they can bring a sense of playfulness and whimsy the holiday for your loved one. You can choose wildflower bouquets in traditional Valentine’s colors, but we prefer arrangements with tons of color like non-conforming purple and orange.
Carnations are not always a go-to flower for Valentine’s gifts either, and we’re not sure why. We love carnations! We adore their versatility and their ability to convey a pure message of love. Sometimes, carnations are one of the cheapest flowers available in the flower shop, and maybe that’s why people opt for other blooms. But, we don’t equate money with love, so we say, “embrace the carnation” and give it in all its red and white splendor this holiday.
These are a few fun flower arrangements you can give for Valentine’s Day. There are so many other blossoms, and combinations of them, that you can choose to send a special message of love. The key to picking the right flowers for Valentine’s Day is to choose varieties that say something about your love for another, or your giftee’s likes and preferences.
