Blooms for Blossoming Romances: 5 of the Most Popular Valentines Flowers

As we approach the end of January, our attention will be turning to the next big occasion - Valentine’s Day. Now’s the time we see many stores stocking up on cute, novelty and romantic gifts for your loved one, but here at Clare Florist, we think you can’t go wrong with a beautiful bouquet when it comes to nailing the Valentines gift. A lot of us may instantly assume that the classic red rose is the bloom of choice when it comes to Valentines flowers, but there’s actually plenty more choice out there if you fancy breaking away from tradition. Read on to find out the five most popular flowers you can give for Valentine’s Day.


Carnations are incredibly versatile flowers and are a great option for all occasions. From a practical side too, they also last much longer when cut, meaning the lucky recipient will enjoy them for longer too. At an affordable price point too, they’re great if you’re on a tight budget for your Valentines flowers, all the while still showing you care for that special someone. For a playful twist on the classic red colour palette, we love this bouquet of Hot Pink Carnations. Paired with contrasting white gypsophila, this fun and flirty bouquet will make a great choice for relationships that are still in the early stages. With carnations there’s also plenty of choice when it comes to colour, which is perfect for those who aren’t fans of the typical reds and pinks associated with the occasion. Take this colourful Mixed Carnations Bouquet, which features yellow, white and pink flowers finished with gypsophila, a fabulous way to make a loved one smile this Valentines Day.


Gerberas are incredibly popular, known for their bright colours and summery feel, and are a great choice for your Valentines Day flowers if you want something a little different. If your loved one is known for making you smile on a daily basis these cheery flowers are perfect for complimenting a sunny personality. Our Gerbera Sunshine bouquet is perfect for adding a touch of summer sunshine to their day with a beautiful mix of orange and yellow gerberas, along with a few light pink ones to add a dash of romance. For a more Valentines-inspired colour palette though, we love this Boho Chic gerbera bouquet, which blends deep and rich colours to create this bold and beautiful bunch of blooms. A delightful combination of gerberas, fresh roses, freesia, statice, and hypericum, this is a wonderfully romantic bouquet that is sure to make your loved one feel extra special.


Often overlooked because of their simple appearance, tulips are still an excellent choice for your Valentines flowers. As a more affordable flower they’re perfect for smaller budgets and they come in a wide variety of different colours so you can choose one to match your loved one’s personality. In addition, tulips tend to last longer than most flowers too, so they can be a handy representation of your long-lasting love! Our Mixed Tulips Bouquet is a wonderfully colourful mix of gorgeous spring-inspired colours, including yellows, pinks and purples and will make a fitting addition to any home this Valentine’s day.  You could even take things further with our Mixed Tulips Gift Set, which comes with a chic and stylish vase, along with a delicious box of Lily O’Brien’s chocolates and a handwritten card for an extra personal touch.


One of the most popular plants in the world, the lovely lily not only stands out with a range of beautiful colours and fragrances, but it also makes an elegant addition to any bouquet. Our Sensation Lilies Bouquet not only is fantastic value for money, but the gorgeous scent and vibrant colour of the Oriental lilies will ensure they stand out, making them perfect for brightening someone’s day. Alternatively, our Rose and Lily Bouquet is a wonderfully romantic choice if you want to go for something extra special. It’s a stunning combination of crisp, white lilies and vibrant pink roses, and is sure to set the mood for any romantic setting this Valentine’s Day.


Finally, we couldn’t talk about Valentines flowers without a nod to the classic rose, everyone’s go to choice at this time of year. The traditional red rose is of course the top choice for Valentine’s Day, and we have a wonderful selection of red rose bouquets to suit all budgets, from this Single Red Rose Gift Set complete with Lily O’Brien chocolates, to this incredibly luxurious and romantic arrangement of 100 Red Roses, which is perfect if you really want to make a statement!

Hopefully this has given you plenty of inspiration when it comes to deciding on your Valentine’s Day flowers of choice this February. Remember, at Clare Florist we have a stunning selection of beautiful flower arrangements for all occasions, all created by hand, thanks to our expert florists.
