What is the first thing that you think of when giving flowers on Valentines Day? Roses. It’s the classic flower that everyone gives…and boring. Stand out from the rest by giving her something a little different and unique. Here are a few alternative flower gift ideas that are all under $60 (before shipping).
With purple dendrobium orchids, green carnations, dark pink Sweet William, an emerald palm leaf and other tropical greens, this arrangement is unique. This is perfect for anyone who wants to add some Zen to any room, and the orchids will last a very long time.
Having had orchids in the past, I suggest picking up some orchid food to go along with it. They are very picking, and need to be in a well lit area.
