Choosing flowers for Valentine’s Day may seem like a no-brainer to most people—send roses!  While a bouquet of a dozen red roses is very traditional, it’s sometimes not very personal.  In fact, some people really don’t care for roses at all.  In that case, what do you do?  Here are a few tips for choosing the best Valentine’s flowers.

Tip #1: Make it personal.  If you know your significant other doesn’t like roses, don’t get roses.  Instead, get his/her favorite flower.  The more you can show how much you know your partner, the better.  Make your flower arrangement as personal as possible.

Tip #2: Don’t wait until the last minute.  Florists are going to have extra flowers on hand for the holiday, of course, but you still risk not being able to get what you want if you want until the last minute to order your bouquet.  The sooner you place your floral order, the better.  This is especially true if you do want a bouquet of red roses—they often sell out very quickly.

Tip #3: Get a potted plant instead of cut flowers.  There are several reasons why plants make good Valentine’s gifts.  First, men often appreciate them more than flowers.  Second, they last much longer.  Third, plants can be seen as a representation of your growing love for each other and something you can both enjoy for years to come…as long as you don’t get a plant that’s too hard to grow!

Tip #4: Buy your partner a packet of flower seeds.  If your significant other loves gardening, create a gift basket of flower seeds and various gardening tools.  The two of you can plant these seeds together and watch them grow.  Again, it’s another physical representation of your growing feelings for each other, plus it’s a fun activity to do after Valentine’s Day.

Tip #5: Ask your florist for help.  Florists are very creative people, and they can come up with some wonderful and non-traditional arrangements for any couple.  If you’re just not sure what flowers to get, ask for some help from an expert.  You’ll be amazed at what a great florist can create.
