Flowers are one of the most desired gifts for Valentine’s Day: According to a recent survey from RetailMeNot, 31 percent of Americans in relationships want to receive flowers from their significant other. However, you can purchase flowers for anyone special in your life, and plants and dried flowers are unique gifts you may also want to explore.
While the rose may be the flower most typically associated with Valentine’s Day, delivery services offer a variety of botanicals around the holiday, from heart-shaped bamboo to bouquets of daisies. You can seek out a specific flower for a loved one if they have a favorite type or shop for a plant based on their lifestyle — for example, if you know someone who has pets, you can find specific pet-safe blooms on some sites, or if someone is looking to expand their collection of indoor plants, you can buy them a potted succulent.
To help guide your shopping, we rounded up a handful of flower and plant options for Valentine’s Day across styles, sizes and price ranges.
Best Valentine’s Day flowers and plants
We rounded up a selection of flower and plant varieties available in different sizes and styles across price ranges. Before you make a purchase, be sure to double-check the order cutoff for delivery by Valentine’s Day — some sites have a blanket cutoff date for all orders, while others may vary by zip code.
Valentine’s Day flowers
In addition to bouquets available year-round, many flower delivery services offer new or limited-edition bouquets during Valentine’s Day, some of which we included below.
