Flowers are a classic staple gift for Valentine’s Day. Picking out flowers for others can be tricky. Flowers hold many different meanings for many different people. You could ask the recipient what flowers they like but that could complicate things. At the end of the day, the choice is up to you but here are some suggestions to help you along.
What flowers should you give to a lover?
So you have a girlfriend or boyfriend that you want to give flowers to, where do you start? If you want to go with a classic flower you can go with red roses. Red roses are one of the most well known symbols of love. If you want to be more unique you should go with tulips. Tulips also symbolize love but aren’t as cliche as roses are. Red carnations are an easy to find flower that would be lovely as well.
What flowers should you give to a friend?
Flowers aren’t just a romantic thing. Giving flowers to your friends for Valentine’s Day is amazing. In the floral world the color yellow often represents friendship. Going with flowers like yellow roses or sunflowers that follow the yellow color scheme is great for friends. A few other options for friends are chrysanthemums, gerbera daisies, and alstroemerias.
What flowers should you give to a crush?
Do you have a crush on someone and want to show your affection with flowers? You may want to go with the classic Valentine’s flower, the red rose. If you want to show your affection in a slightly more unique way you could go with pink roses, gerbera daisies, or calla lilies. If you like the idea of red roses but don’t like how cliche they are, pink roses are a wonderful choice. Gerbera Daisies share similar meanings with pink roses but are more easily found. Calla lilies may be hard to find but, if you do manage to get them, they are bound to impress your crush with their unique beauty.
What flowers should you give a role model.
Do you have a role model you look up to that you want to recognize? Perhaps you have a parent, a teacher, or a couch that you want to thank. With their alluring form, orchids are one of your best options as a gift. Other beautiful options, that hold similar symbolism to orchid’s mellow meaning, are irises and peonies. LIlies and daffodils are both symbols of good luck so you could take them into consideration as well.
In the end, picking out flowers is up to you. You can give someone one of these flowers or you could buy a random bouquet. Whatever you choose I wish the best of luck. Happy Valentine’s Day.
