As everyone knows Valentine’s Day falls on February 14th of every year. On this day, lovers and often friends give various gifts to express their feelings. The most well known gifts for Valentine’s Day includes chocolates and flowers. While roses are the usual standard for Valentine flowers, there are other bouquets and arrangements you should consider.
Other unique Valentine flowers include carnations, iris, tulips, lilies, daffodils and even daisies. Many people prefer to give carnations as Valentine flowers because of their rich, intoxicating, and spicy scent. The smell of cloves, the many dainty petals, and the carnation's similar appearance to roses make carnations an ideal flowers to symbolize love, friendship, or companionship.
The Iris is also a popular favorite as Valentine's flowers, in lieu of roses. Its elegant long stems open to show graceful and colorful flowers. You can place these flowers next to some fragrant baby’s breath greenery to frame the spectacular coloring of the iris flowers.
Valentine’s Day also marks the beginning of the tulip growing season and tulips are beloved by all. These graceful cup-shaped flowers come in many beautiful shades and symbolize spring, rebirth, and new beginnings. They are perfect for a blossoming relationship or one that needs a breath of fresh air. Some tulips mixed in with roses, daisies, or daffodils will create a wonderful bouquet that shows how you truly feel.
Of course, even with these other unique and various floral arrangements, most people still prefer sending red roses to their beloved Valentine. Red roses are still considered to be the symbol of true romantic love (and many women love the idea of being presented with a bouquet of 18-24 long stem red roses.)
But don't forget that red roses are not the only roses that you can choose. In fact, you could send a bouquet of white, blue, pastel, pink, or yellow roses as a Valentine flower gift. You can also mix and match your rose bouquet. Red and white roses, mixed pastel roses, and lavender designer roses all show your personality while spicing up the occasion.
Besides sending fresh-cut flowers for Valentine’s Day, you might also decide to send silk Valentine flowers instead. Silk flowers are perfect for those with flower allergies or like to do their own interior decorating.
If you want the flowers to last for a lifetime, silk flowers are the way to go, although they are often perceived as less romantic. So be sure to add some nice chocolate truffles, a cuddly teddy bear, or a memorable Valentine gift basket when sending silk flowers.
The next time that you are looking to buy Valentine flowers, keep in mind the many different flowers your special Valentine might appreciate. Golden daffodils, pink carnations, white iris, mixed tulips, sun-kissed daisies and bright lilies all express love and romance in their own special way. Get creative if you gave them roses last year, or send red roses if this is your first Valentine's Day together.
