3. Dried Flowers
Dried flowers might not be the first product you think on when considering what to put in your Valentine’s Day stock. But that’s just the thing: you really should!
As this article will show you, dried flowers are more popular than ever. They symbolize an immortal, everlasting kind of love. Just the message your customers want to send their truest Valentine! Here are some suggestions, but you can find all kinds of shapes, colors, and varieties of dried flowers in our webshop.
- Lavender: not only beautiful and romantic thanks to the deep purple but also because of the iconic and intoxicating fragrance. It’s not for nothing that so many massage oils are Lavender scented.
- Helianthus: giving someone a bunch of little suns is perhaps the most ideal way to tell them you love them.
Lisianthus offers the beauty of the Rose, but without the thorns. It symbolizes appreciation, gratitude, and charisma. If that doesn’t say “Valentine” we don’t know what does.
Ranunculus flowers are a symbol of wealth, happiness, and festivity.
Let us convince you that Daffodils should always be in your stock for Valentine’s Day. In the Western world, it symbolizes selfishness and vanity. This correlates with its botanical name: Narcissus. In ancient Greece, Narcissus was an astonishingly handsome youth who broke many a girl’s heart. As a lesson in humility, the god Nemesis lured Narcissus to a pond and showed him his own image. Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection and eventually drowned in the pond. On that same spot, a beautiful yellow flower appeared.
This makes of the Narcissus, or Daffodil, a symbol of vanity, but also of extreme beauty.
What makes the Daffodil a true Valentine’s flower, however, is the meaning that it bears in non-Western cultures. In some oriental countries, the hanging trumpets of these flowers symbolize hidden love. Secret lovers and long-distance lovers send each other Daffodil flowers to express their love. Since Valentine’s Day is all about secret admirers and hidden lovers, this flower is perfectly suited for your V-Day arrangements.
Of course, the Peony can’t be missing on this list. The delicate but lush flower heads make this one of the most beloved flowers to give to that special one.
In China, Cymbidium is a flower of friendship. It’s also very popular at weddings. So this one is especially relevant for those in a more serious relationship!
Let’s be honest: before you’re giving someone Hyacinths for Valentine’s Day, you need to be absolutely sure that they’ll be able to appreciate the particular smell. If you know they do, then there is nothing more lovely to receive than a bouquet of these smellers in your favorite color.
The Hyacinth stands for peace, beauty, and soft love.
In ancient Greece and Rome, this flower was associated with fun and partying. This was thanks to the fact that the Calla is shaped like the chalice used to serve wine. Coincidentally, that’s also where the Calla got its name.
Of course, every love and relationship is something to celebrate. But even more in line with Valentine’s Day tradition, is that Callas symbolize beauty, purity, and innocence.
The Anemone is a symbol of honesty and care. Giving someone a bouquet of Anemones sends the message that you wish to be together with that person. This makes Anemones great flowers for both longtime lovers and those who want to ask someone to be their Valentine.
Gerberas are beautiful, delicate flowers. Since they’re available in so many different, bright colors, there’s always a bouquet of Gerberas to be found that’s excellent for your Valentine. What’s more, they are a symbol of mercy, spontaneity, and merriness. All ingredients that any good relationship or marriage could use!
Astrantia is also known as the “star herb” because of the flowerheads that are shaped like stars. Actually, this shape can also be traced in the Latin name Astrantia: “aster” means “star”. It is a symbol of courage, strength, and protection.
What could be more romantic than giving a bouquet of small, bright-colored stars to the one you love? And there are lots of different varieties to choose from, from Astrantia Star of Love to the Astrantia Star of Promise: there’s always a star to send the right message.
