What is classic to one is cliché to another, and it may be true that there’s nothing more controversial than the quintessential bouquet of a dozen roses on Valentine’s Day. We love the unwavering romance that no blooms can quite duplicate like roses, but for those seeking something more creative, we’ve compiled a list of floral gifts sure to impress and surprise your loved one. We’ve even included a way to reimagine the rose this Valentine’s Day.
Here are some out-of-the-box floral ideas to consider.
For the Wild at Heart
Sensual yet refined, this arrangement is composed of blooms and foliage. If you favor something dreamy and romantic, try soft wildflowers combined with colorful accents for a contemporary display of affection.
Reimagined Garden Roses
Still wanting to incorporate roses into your Valentine’s Day gift? A garden-style take on the classic arrangement will feel fresh and inspired. Mix budding and fully-bloomed roses with textured greenery and multitudes of secondary blooms for a dynamic bouquet.
The Gift that Keeps on Giving
Sure, the flowers won’t last forever, but they’ll be able to hold onto it for much longer if a succulent is included. Include a beautiful pot to house the cactus for a longstanding gesture of romance, and bonus decor! Surround lush blooms with glossy, angular succulents for a distinct contrast
