Can Valentine’s Day be celebrated without flowers?

Short answer is ‘no’. We cannot even imagine Valentine’s Day without flowers, especially red roses. Among all flowers, red roses remain my favorites because they are not only associated with love but are also able to fill any place with their exquisite fragrance.

Every year on Valentine’s Day, I usually send my love ones at least a dozen roses; sometimes, even two dozen! As soon as I handover the roses to them, they cannot help but smile at me.

However, if you are fed up with the same old-fashioned roses and want to buy something different for your partner, then there is help for you.

Some people prefer to send a mixture of different flowers to their sweethearts instead of just one. If you are of this type, your local florist should be able to help you select the best varieties and colors of flowers for this purpose. If you want, you can even send her a small plant with a blooming flower, or a flower basket. Or you can also buy her a tall vase containing tulips or Calla Lilies! All in all, there is no dearth of ideas if you want to surprise her with something extraordinary!

If you have decided on sending her a flower basket, I won’t recommend sending her an empty basket.. Have you heard of Gourmet Gift Baskets for Valentine’s Day? These gift baskets could contain anything and everything ranging from candles, chocolates, lotions, snacks, coffees, etc.

If she is an animal lover then you could even add Plush Animals to the basket; if she loves balloons then adding them is also an option. Make sure to put only those things in the basket which are either her favorites or you feel would please her; if in doubt then ask your local florist for ideas!

Thankfully you won’t have to carry the gift basket to yr love ones because most professional florists offer delivery services if you order the basket ahead of time, at least a couple of weeks before Valentine’s day. To make the basket even more special, you can attach a romantic message to it!

Flowers remain on of the best and most affordable ways of celebrating Valentine’s Day. With the right ideas and flower arrangements, you really cannot go wrong! If you are a woman reading this article, note that men also love flowers as much as women do
