For most of us, gone are the days when we would spend Valentine’s Day in an elementary classroom, giddy with excitement, decorating a paper bag or “mailbox,” and passing out small cards with silly puns or quirky sayings like “You Rock,” “U R 2 Cool,” “BFFs 4 Life,” or “Thank You for Being My Friend.” However, the lessons we learned in elementary school about love still hold true today. Although Valentine’s Day is a time for couples to turn up the romance and get mushy and gushy, it is also a day to celebrate our friendships. Perhaps you have grown too old to send a Valentine’s Day card depicting your favorite cartoon characters, or maybe you’re looking for something extra special to go along with it. However you want to express your love to your friends, the experts here at Flowers by Coley, the top flower shop in Las Vegas, are sharing the best gift ideas for the girls, the fellas, your coworkers, and your neighbors to honor your friendships this Valentine’s Day.
How to Select a Fun Valentine’s Day Surprise
Gift Ideas for Your Bestie
Yellow lilies, orchids, sunflowers, and even alstroemeria can be the perfect way to wish your bestie a happy Valentine’s Day without sending the wrong message. Yellow blooms are symbolic of friendship as well as happiness, joy, positivity, and lightheartedness. For something more “on brand” for Valentine’s Day that still celebrates a best friend, yellow roses are always a winner.
Gift Ideas for the Girls
Whether it’s your girlfriend or a gal pal, Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day, women will always appreciate a lovely bouquet of fresh blooms. When choosing the right ones to send or gift, think about the relationship you have and the message you want to send. Then, turn to red for romance, pink for grace, yellow for friendship, purple for admiration, blue for peace, or even green flowers for harmony.
Gift Ideas for Men
If selecting flowers for men seems awkward or you can’t find something that your guy will love, try a blooming plant. Birds of paradise, peace lilies, and orchids are wonderful flowers for men that are still masculine but send a loving message. This Valentine’s Day, don’t get him another subscription or set of golf balls. Send him the unexpected.
Gift Ideas for Couples
For couples celebrating their first Valentine’s Day together, why not send something extra special their way? As they settle in for a cozy and romantic night at home, help them complete the ambiance with a romantic collection of roses and lilies. You can also pair any magnificent floral bouquet with a lovely gift to further enhance the romance.
Gift Ideas for Neighbors
The love we have for our friendly, supportive, and helpful neighbors is something we can never take for granted. No matter if they live right next door, down the road, or one block away, our quality of life depends on the quality of our neighbors. If you have the best kind of neighbors, spread a little love their way this Valentine’s Day. Brighten their day with their favorite-colored flowers or a collection of peach blooms, like tulips, carnations, ranunculus, and alstroemeria, to symbolize their sweetness and your genuine gratitude.
Gift Ideas for Co-workers
Co-workers, like neighbors, have the power to make our jobs enjoyable. If you love your co-workers, why not coordinate an extraordinary Valentine’s Day surprise? Treating them to a vibrant bouquet of orange blooms has the power to enhance their productivity and symbolize success, enthusiasm, passion for work, warmth, joy, and excitement. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate your close co-workers this Valentine’s Day.
