One of the most popular gifts on Valentine's Day is flowers and plants, and our garden centre in Sussex is the perfect place to find them! February is a great time to buy flowers, houseplants and garden plants as a symbol of love, friendship, and caring. Whether you're looking for a traditional bouquet of red roses or colourful planter, you'll find it all at Rushfields Garden Centre.
Gift option 1: flowers
When choosing flowers for your loved one, it's important to consider their taste and preferences. Some popular choices for Valentine's Day include red roses, peonies, tulips, lilies, and sunflowers. Red roses are a classic symbol of love and passion and are often the go-to choice for couples on Valentine's Day. Peonies, on the other hand, are known for their delicate beauty and are the perfect choice for someone who appreciates understated elegance. But you really do it the right way if you know the meaning behind some of these popular flowers.
- Rose: Roses are the classic symbol of love and passion and are often the go-to choice for couples on Valentine's Day. Red roses are the most traditional, but other colours such as pink, yellow, and white also have special meanings.
- Tulip: Tulips come in a variety of colours and each has its own symbolic meaning, such as red for love and yellow for friendship. They make a great choice for a friend or loved one.
- Peace Lily: Peace Lilies are known for their air-purifying properties and their white flowers symbolise peace and purity, making them a great choice for a friend or loved one.
- Gerbera Daisy: Gerbera Daisies come in a variety of colours and symbolise happiness, innocence, and purity. They make a great choice for someone who brings joy to your life.
Gift option 2: Plants
Plants are another great option for Valentine's Day gifts and are a long-lasting symbol of love. A beautiful potted plant can brighten up any room and serve as a reminder of your love for years to come. Whether it is your partner, friend or family member you are buying the gift for, there is a plant with a special meaning for every message you want to bring.
Some popular plant choices for Valentine's Day include succulents, peace lilies, bonsai trees, and orchids. Succulents are low maintenance plants that are perfect for someone who may not have a green thumb. Aloe Vera, for example, is a succulent that symbolises healing and comfort and is a great choice for someone who needs a little extra care and support. Peace lilies are known for their air-purifying properties and are a great choice for someone who appreciates the benefits of plants. Bonsai trees are a unique and thoughtful gift for someone who appreciates the art of bonsai. The Ivy is a symbol of friendship, loyalty, and faithfulness, making it a great choice for a close friend or loved one. Bamboo symbolises growth, strength, and flexibility and is a great choice for someone who is going through a tough time or needs a little extra support.
And, unlike cut flowers, plants can continue to grow and thrive for years with proper care. This makes them a long-lasting reminder of your love and affection.
Gift option 3: home accessories
It might be a less traditional option, but not a less thoughtful one. Home accessories are a great way of expressing your love for your significant other. Of course, you can find a poster that says ‘I love you’ in big bold letters, but let us help you find more creative ways of showing your feelings by gifting something like home fragrances or diffusers.
Buying home fragrances or diffusers can be a good idea for Valentine's Day. These gifts are a great way to create a cosy and relaxing atmosphere in the home, and they can help to create a romantic ambiance for a special evening. Aromatherapy has been shown to have a calming effect on the mind and body, making it a great choice for a Valentine's Day gift.
There are many options available when it comes to home fragrances and diffusers, from scented candles to reed diffusers and essential oil blends. You can choose a scent that you both love, such as lavender or rose, or try something new and unique, such as sandalwood or jasmine. These gifts can also be paired with other gifts, such as bath products or body lotions, for a complete at-home spa experience.
You can find gifts such as diffusers, scented candles and home fragrances out our garden centre in Sussex. Not sure which one to get? Let our staff advise you on the perfect gift!
