Romantic Alternatives to Roses on Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day is a holiday for letting those we love know just how we feel about them. We can express this in a variety of ways, and sending one (or several) dozen red roses is one of the classic, time-tested Valentine’s Day gestures. However, if you’re looking for alternatives to the expected this year, consider these sweet gift ideas for that someone special on Valentine’s Day:

Tropical Blooms

Tropical blooms are a wonderful way to break from tradition and surprise your loved one with unexpected beauty and elegance. The Exotic Orchid conveys passion, strength and vitality with a grace and elegance that’s hard to find in any other flower. An orchid is sure to make an impact, especially on Valentine’s Day. Whether you choose to give a single orchid in a striking color or orchids as part of a mixed bouquet, their tropical grace is sure to thrill that special someone.

Birds of Paradise are another luxurious tropical bloom that will bring exotic charm to your Valentine’s Day gift-giving. Colors range from bright orange to melon to salmon to a warm yellow. They look beautiful on their own or as part of a tropical arrangement.

Bronze-colored Calla Lilies are another exotic way to bring tropical energy into your connection on Valentine’s Day. These striking flowers have all the grace and charm you would expect from a lily, but their bronzed color makes them far from ordinary.

Something to Cuddle

If you want to break from the tradition of giving flowers for Valentine’s Day altogether, sending a teddy bear can be the perfect way to inspire affection. Teddy bears for Valentine’s Day gift giving come in a variety of sizes and colors, so there’s sure to be one for that special someone in your life.

A Valentine’s Day Balloon Bouquet

While a bouquet of fresh flowers is always appreciated, a balloon bouquet can make a big statement as well. If you want to inject some fun into your romantic connection this year, give a Valentine’s Day Balloon Bouquet with assorted red and pink helium-filled balloons. The balloons are emblazoned with romantic sayings, but perhaps best of all, this bouquet also comes anchored with a box of Truffle Babies or Marie McGee’s Bumblebees candy.

This Valentine’s Day, consider changing things up with these romantic alternatives to red roses. If you have any questions or are ready to place your order, contact Rose Hill Flowers today.
