The 5 Most Popular Flowers to Gift for Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day is the perfect time of the year to show the person you love how much you care. And, while you might use little gifts here and there throughout the rest of the year to tell them how you feel, Valentine's Day is the one day you can go all out.

The tradition of gifting flowers on Valentine’s Day was started by Charles II of Sweden in the 18th century. Each flower symbolises different things. Thus, by gifting a bouquet with different types and colours of flowers, a whole message can be conveyed to the other person.

Flowers have long had special meanings attributed to them, but each bloom carries its own unique set of symbolism and associations. So, if you’re ready to start narrowing down your choices for special flower delivery for Valentine’s Day, take a closer look at these popular options, we’ve gathered.


The  Rose is the most popular and widely purchased flower for Valentine’s Day. Available in a range of colours with a beautiful shape and aroma, roses are flowers of passion and love. By gifting a bouquet of beautiful red roses, you are conveying your love for the other person. But if you want to symbolise the purity and innocence in your relationship, then a bouquet of white roses would be the best choice. Want to give a bunch of roses to your dear friend on Valentine’s Day? Then a bouquet of yellow roses would be the right choice. A bouquet of pink roses would be the best Valentine's Day gift for your wife as it stands for feminine beauty, admiration, and gentleness.


These playful ruffly blossoms are right behind roses in popularity, likely due to their feminine appearance and affordable price tag. Carnations have been linked with fascination, making them a great pick for a relationship in its early stages.

By gifting a deep red carnation flower, you are expressing your true love and passion for your valentine. A bouquet of white carnation flowers symbolises the purity in your relationship.


Though tulips are very simple in appearance when compared to roses, they are being gifted during Valentine’s Day because of their exotic nature. Tulips have hard stems, and when properly taken care of they can last for weeks. This can symbolise your deep-rooted feeling for the other person. Just like roses, tulips are also available in different colours, and you can choose the one depending on your valentine’s choice.

If you’re looking for a gift just to brighten someone’s day, then yellow tulips may be in order as they stand for cheerful thoughts. On the other hand, if you’re interested in patching up a relationship then white tulips are the flowers to turn to, as they stand for forgiveness.


Orchids are very delicate flowers that symbolise love and care. They are exotic and gorgeous and are a symbol of luxury and richness. Though purple colored orchids are more common, these flowers are also available in other shades like white and pink. Gifting an orchid to your valentine shows how much you value your relationship.


Whether it is pink, red, white or orange, lilies are worth gifting to your valentine because of its delicate petals and soothing aroma. Just like tulips, lilies also have a hard stalk which signifies your deep-rooted love for your valentine. Lilies also stand for devotion and gifting a bouquet of lilies symbolises your dedication to your valentine.

Stargazer lilies can be used to honour the ambition of your loved one. For a more elevated look, try pairing the lilies with roses to make them feel like royalty. Similarly, tiger lilies are extra romantic because they symbolise passion.

Although there are so many flowers that can easily represent your everlasting love for that special person in your life, these are the most popular flower choices when it comes to Valentine’s Day.
