Gifting Valentine’s Day flowers is a timeless tradition and surefire way to make your special someone feel loved and appreciated. It’s a legit occasion to go all out on romantic floral bouquets and gifts, especially if there’s a talk of competition or you’re also planning to pull off an epic proposal and pop the question while standing on one knee.
Nevertheless, even if you’re only set to have an intimate dinner with a hearty, home-cooked meal to share over a glass of wine or won’t be seeing each other at all because you’ll both be busy working, a surprise flower delivery would make an unforgettable gift.
If this is your first time and you’re wondering how to send flowers to someone on Valentine’s Day, this is for you. While it’s almost impossible to ever go wrong with flowers, here’s a list of our florists’ favorite and customers’ most requested blooms when creating swoon-worthy Valentine’s Day flower arrangements to give you an idea.
Roses are ultimately the traditional choice when it comes to Valentine's Day gifts. Dubbed as the most romantic blooms, roses are used for everything during the love month, from classic hand bouquets to the more contemporary hatbox flower arrangements. Take your pick from long-stemmed Ecuadorian roses, garden roses, free spirit roses, and more.
Red Valentines' Day roses may be the go-to flower when expressing fervent passion and desire but don’t hesitate to explore other color options. For instance, flower bouquets with hot pink or blush pink roses look sweet and stunning. When combined, red and pink roses beautifully represent a deep, kind of poetic love and admiration.
Tulips lend any Valentine’s flower arrangement a premium look. Gifting an arrangement filled with red tulips celebrates a powerful and perfect love, one that you can’t resist. Tulips are an elegant and equally romantic alternative to roses for VDay. Popular red and pink varieties include:
- Dolce Vita
- Double Cadillac
- Flaming Parrot
- Endless Love
- Fancy Frills
But don’t limit yourself with reds and pinks! Surprise your wife or girlfriend with show-stopping Valentine’s flowers in vibrant colors. Pink tulips mixed with orange, purple, and other fun, delicious colors will be hard to resist.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: orchid arrangements are for all seasons and occasions. Pink orchids symbolize femininity, grace, and beauty, while purple orchids stand for royalty, respect, and admiration. Orchids make unique and exquisite choices for Valentine’s Day flowers. They give the best bang for your buck because they last longer. Most orchid plants can last for years with minimal care.
More importantly, orchid arrangements are allergy-friendly because they don’t release pollen into the air. So, guaranteed no sneezing and probably more smooching.
It’s not surprising to see clients requesting sunflowers to take center stage on their Valentine’s flower arrangements. These bright, beautiful, and sun-loving blooms represent happiness, warmth, and loyalty, and can effortlessly make anyone who receives them smile their widest.
Bearing an uncanny resemblance to poppies, the seasonal anemone also got what it takes to star in your Valentine’s Day flower designs. A true winter flower, it exudes a festive and fascinating aura that makes it extra special. When incorporated in a romantic floral arrangement, we recommend going for the following varieties:
- Red De Caen
- Mr. Fokker
Peonies aren’t only pretty, they are also associated with beauty and prosperity. When gifted to your significant other, peony bouquets send warm wishes of love and a blessed and blissful relationship. Whether as a monofloral or mixed floral, these gorgeous blooms create a breathtaking Valentine’s Day flower arrangement.
8. Gerbera Daisies
It’s hard to imagine anyone who could say no to a cheerful bunch of gerbera daisies. These delightful flowers are said to symbolize innocence, purity, happiness, and loyal love. An enchanting floral design featuring daisies in blush pink or eye-popping colors is definitely on our list of epic Valentine’s Day flower arrangements.
9. Calla Lilies
Long-stemmed calla lily exudes effortless elegance. These bell-shaped blooms are captivating when used on their own or mixed with other flowers. They come in a variety of stunning hues, such as pink, white, yellow, red, and orange. Because they are not as commonly given as roses for this occasion, calla lilies will make unforgettable Valentine’s Day flowers.
10. Stargazer Lilies
With their big, showy blooms, stargazer lilies have got what it takes to be on your VDay list. These fragrant flowers are typically delivered as buds to ensure that you enjoy their beauty for several weeks. Stargazer lilies can make hearts skip a bit on their own but create a dramatic moment when combined with other gorgeous flowers like roses or tulips.
