Ah, Valentine’s day. Ladies (attached and unattached) love this day, and guys (attached and unattached), not so much.

Valentine’s day represents a day of showing your love to your significant other, and incidentally also a day of breaking the bank (for a lot of guys).

You’ve probably been giving roses for Valentine’s day for years now, and there is no better year than this year to mix it up a little. You can also take the chance to show her/him how much effort you spend on them, with your atas choice of flower.

Here are 7 kinds to choose from.


1. Carnations

Gardenias are incredibly fragrant and signify purity and joy, in addition to connoting a deep, old-fashioned love. Instead of buying a single rose, you can consider buying a single Gardenia (they only come in single blooms) to make a sophisticated statement. Like the Casa Blanca Lilies, this one is super atas.


7. Gerbera Daisies

Daisies represent beauty, innocence and purity, and the bright colours of this particular kind additionally represent cheerfulness. Get red ones as an excellent alternative to red roses, or get a bunch in different colours to represent many things at once, like gratitude, love and admiration.


Of course, roses remain the safest choice if you’re not confident in what your SO likes, but you can totally consider the flowers above, as a fun alternative, and as a different and special way you can express your love for your special one.
