A simple and elegant expression that harmonizes perfectly with whatever gesture or occasion you are
gifting for. The history of giving flowers as gifts can be dated back to the ancient Greeks where flowers
were used as common offerings to gods and temples. Over time the practice of gifting flowers extended to
a loving, romantic indication that the person receiving the flowers was revered as an earthly god or
goddess. It’s no surprise that a tradition like this has lasted through the ages and is now associated with
romantic holidays like Valentines Day!
Both a hand-picked bunch from the wild or a professionally arranged bouquet can be equally beautiful
and meaningful, but the type of flowers you are giving can have significant meaning.
Did you know that many mythologies and historical cultures have passed down tidbits of what sentiments
are expressed with certain flowers? Camellia, carnation or chamomile, they all mean something different!
This is why roses are the most common Valentines Day flower. A beautiful red rose is your safest bet for
the most romantic Valentines Day gift idea.
Be sure to pair your Valentines Day surprise with an elegant, romantic red rose. The timeless and
traditional symbol of love and desire for the earthly god or goddess in your life!
