There’s a reason the rose is the most famous flower in the world. Its beauty, delicateness, and sweet fragrance are hard to top. Roses grow in a variety of colors which each have their own unique meanings. Red roses, for example, represent deep love, passion, and romance, which is why it is the preferred flower color for Valentine’s Day. For all other days throughout the year, though, choose a different color or mix of colors to spice things us, like our Wild arrangement. This stunning arrangement has peach-colored roses along with pink tulips and orchids. Roses are hands-down the best way to let your long-distance bae know just much you love them.

Plants make great gifts – they provide numerous health benefits such as purifying indoor air, freshening up any space, and lifting spirits. A plant can also be a symbol of your relationship since it takes nurturing, feeding, and care to thrive, just like your LDR does. If you are concerned your partner may not have a green thumb, then select a hard-to-kill plant like succulents or orchids, which are easier to care plants.

Plus, it’s important to send gifts frequently to keep the passion stirring. If you ever become stumped on what type of gift to send your partner, just think flowers! No one ever grows tired of receiving flowers – ever! Fresh seasonal flowers are a delightful gift appreciated and loved by everyone, every day, anytime. It’s true! Happy gift-giving and may you and your special loved one be together forever soon.
