Celebrating Valentine’s Day in elementary school taught us the importance of honoring our friendships and that “love” can be defined in all sorts of ways. We fondly reminisce on exchanging the most colorful and exciting folded-up pieces of paper that depicted popular TV characters and read things like “Thank You for Being a Friend,” BFFs 4 Ever,” “U Rock,” and “Happy Valentine’s Day!” While Valentine’s Day as adults revolves around romance, it is still important to acknowledge all the other “loves” in our lives, from our best girl friends and guy friends to our neighbors and coworkers, everyone deserves to be reminded that they, too, are loved. Here at Expressions Unlimited, the premier florist in Greenville, we are sharing the perfect Valentine’s Day gift ideas for just about everyone.
How to Select a Fun Valentine’s Day Surprise
Gift Ideas for Your Bestie
Showing your bestie some love on Valentine’s Day is a great way to spread positivity and warmth. However, we don’t expect you to send them one dozen red roses. Instead, choose bright and cheerful yellow roses as they signify joy and friendship. Other great flowers perfect for honoring your BFF are hydrangeas, sunflowers, alstroemeria, and orchids, since these blooms symbolize loyalty, unity, support, admiration, family, and friendship.
Gift Ideas for the Girls
Galentine’s Day is a day for all the gals! This pre-Valentine’s Day celebration is ideal for showering all your girl friends with love and, of course, flowers. Whether you plan to honor the day with a girls’ brunch, movie marathon, or GNO (girls’ night out), set the perfect tone with a colorful bouquet of flowers. Yellow is an obvious choice. However, you can also incorporate pink flowers to symbolize femininity, green stems for harmony and luck, blue blooms to bring your peace and serenity, or purple petals for refinement and elegance.
Gift Ideas for Men
A typical Valentine’s Day gift for men might look like a new collection of golf balls, a desk plaque, a coffee mug, or fresh cologne. This year, gift the unexpected. A bouquet of flowers might not be an obvious choice for your favorite guy but trust us when we say it is a gift that nobody can resist. If you’re still skeptical, select a colorful flowering plant like a peace lily, orchid, or birds of paradise.
Gift Ideas for Couples
This year, help the ones you love celebrate their love for one another. We all have that one couple that restores our faith in humanity or gives us a beautiful example of a healthy, strong, and loving relationship. Sending your favorite couples or friends who are in relationships a special bouquet of red and white roses and lilies is a fantastic gesture that won’t go unnoticed. To make their Valentine’s Day even more special, pair their timeless bouquet with an extra fun gift.
Gift Ideas for Neighbors
“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!” Thanks to Mr. Rogers, the love we feel for our neighbors and how to be a trustworthy and friendly neighbor were taught to us at a young age. Being surrounded by friendly neighbors who are always ready to lend a hand is priceless and elevated our quality of life, whether we realize it or not. This Valentine’s Day, show your love and gratitude to your neighbors with blooms in their favorite colors or peach stems that symbolize your sincere appreciation and their sweetness.
Gift Ideas for Co-workers
It has been found that plants can enhance our productivity by 15%. That being said, what is more thoughtful or loving than sending your closest co-workers some blooming plants or flowers for Valentine’s Day? Spending five days a week working on projects and chatting during breaks is sure to create a beautiful bond between you and those you work with, and that deserves love and celebration.
Flowers are the ideal go-to present for anyone on your list this Valentine’s Day. Aside from their natural beauty, symbolism, and fragrance, floral arrangements will also fall in your budget, whether luxurious or classic. They can also be personalized with a love note or specific stems to send the perfect sentiment. Don’t miss out this Valentine’s Day and send flowers from Expressions Unlimited in Greenville to all the loves in your life.
