Going greener: an update on Gardenia’s environmental policy
Valentine’s Day can be a minefield, can’t it?
Are red roses too much?
What if he/she thinks I’m a stalker?
Are white roses only for funerals?
Should I get my recently-heartbroken friend something to cheer her up or would that be weird?
Take a breath; we’re here to help. The first thing you need is this link to our Valentine's Day Collection. These gorgeous arrangements are all hand-tied in store by our super-talented florists and bound to hit the mark this February 14th.
If you’re still unsure – here’s our guide to that classic Valentine’s gift – roses.
For new love, admiration from afar (we don’t endorse stalking, FYI) or to make an impression, it has to be classic red roses. We opt for a variety called Red Naomi because they embody everything that a Valentine’s rose should be – large scarlet flower heads, luxurious velvety petals and long, thorny stems.
Pretty in Pink
For a touch less drama but plenty of appreciation, pink roses are a lovely choice. They symbolise grace, elegance and gratitude, so they’re perfect for someone who has a special place in your heart. Our Mayford hand-tie contains a dozen pale pink roses with fresh foliage; or go full-on peach with loud and lively Miss Piggy Roses.
Definitely not just for funerals, white roses are connected with love, purity, innocence and charm. They are also a great choice for people who like their décor stylishly minimal. Choose a mix of twelve white roses and green foliage with our Kinsella hand-tie, or keep it simple with a luxury bouquet of Avalanche Roses.
Want to show your pals a little love this Valentine’s Day? Then opt for yellow roses to tell them how much your friendship means. To be honest, we’d be thrilled to receive any flowers at all from our friends, so the world (well, our website) is your oyster when it comes to picking something perfect. The Gardenia Signature Collection is a good place to start.
If all else fails…
If this year is a special one, or your special someone deserves even more, our Grand Gestures Collection is for you. Long stemmed roses, weekly flower deliveries and elegant orchid planters feature in this range of all-out luxury gifts for when only the best will do. Also useful if you’ve done something really, really bad and need to make some serious amends.
Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Gardenia!
