It’s a rookie mistake to forget flowers but it does happen every now and then.

The following is a simple guide to help you get the best flowers for your loved one this Valentine’s Day.

The type of flower you send will symbolize many things. Long-stemmed roses are very popular but before you send them, take a moment to think about a few things. Who are you sending these flowers to? Is it a friend, a family member, or a romantic partner? If you are sending flowers to a friend, don’t send long-stemmed red roses. Yellow would be much more suitable for friendship. The same applies for family members. Red is the color of romance and should only be sent to someone who you are romantically involved with.

We understand that carnations are very common flowers and you rarely see them on Valentine’s Day. They are more popular with Mother’s Day or Christmas Day celebrations. But you can decide to break away from tradition and give them away during Valentine’s Day. Spontaneity can have a measure of romance in itself and going for carnations as opposed to the traditional flowers for Valentine’s Day could add an exciting edge to your romance.

Choosing the right flowers is an essential part of Valentine’s Day. Many people don’t give it much thought and simply go with red roses. However, as you can see from the list above, there are many other options. Of course, if you know what your loved one’s favorite flower is, that’s always the best option!
