On a tight budget? There are lots of wonderful Valentine's Day flower options for consumers on a budget:

  • Order early and ask about specials.
  • Bundles such as adding chocolates or plush toys to your floral gift will give you more for your money.
  • Go to the florist shop to select your floral gift, and deliver it to your sweetheart in person.
  • Send one long-stem rose. It really is an all-time romantic gesture.
  • A beautiful stem of cymbidium orchid accented with lily grass, gift wrapped
  • A perfect bloom (rose, orchid, gerbera, etc.) floating in a lovely glass vase accented with crystals.
  • A tight gathering of tulips designed in a julep cup or small glass vase - perfect for her desktop.
  • Send a bulb plant in a twiggy basket with fresh blossoms accented with curly willow and wired ribbon. Later, your sweetheart can plant the bulb outside in the spring.
