When choosing the best type of flowers to give on Valentine’s Day, the first thing you need to decide is what is the nature of your relationship is to the recipient.

What Your Valentine's Day Flower Selection Says About You


The ever popular rose holds a variety of meanings.  Even the color of rose you choose to give sends a different message.  Yellow roses signify joy and friendship.  White roses expresses innocence.  A pink rose shows gratitude and the red rose means love and passion. Depending on the relationship, a rose can be the perfect flower to give as a gift to everyone on your Valentine’s Day shopping list.

How many roses should you give? This also depends on the nature of your relationship and the number of years you have been together. If this is your first date with someone this Valentine’s Day, one single red rose will do. This means it was love at first sight.

Giving two roses symbolizes that you have love and affection for someone. Surprising someone with three roses is usually done on your one month anniversary of your relationship; and finally, giving someone a bouquet of twelve roses signifies, “I’m yours!”


Roses are not the only type of flower that has a significant meaning. The orchid represents seduction, exotic beauty and love.

If your Valentine has these qualities, choosing a bouquet of orchids would be a lovely gift.

The tulip is another great flower to surprise someone with this Valentine’s Day. The meaning of the tulip is, “perfect love.”

If you are looking for the perfect flower selection to express to someone that they are your perfect match, the tulip is the right choice .


The sunflower doesn’t seem like it would be the perfect flower for the holiday of love, however, this flower symbolizes loyalty. Many people enjoy receiving the sunflower on Valentine’s Day because of its beauty.

This is a great choice to show your significant other that you are loyal to them and only them.

Carnations are a popular choice for Valentine’s Day gifting, not only for their budget-friendly price, but also for their cheerful, lush blooms.  Another reason carnations are popular is their natural vibrant shades and their ability to be dyed a variety of colors.

Red carnations symbolize love and admiration. White is symbolic of pure love.  Gift pink to your mother or your Galentines, they symbolize gratitude.  Feeling impulsive, gift purple carnations to the object of your affection.  The one carnation color you want to avoid gifting on Valentine’s Day is yellow because they traditionally symbolize rejection!
