Love it or hate it valentine’s day is just around the corner. What immediately springs to mind when you think of valentine’s day gifts? Flowers, of course.

The Flower Shop is a business local to me in the Southampton area and they kindly sent me the biggest bouquet of flowers I have ever received in my life.

The Flower Shop

Twenty four red roses to be precise. They are stunning. They also really reminded me of my wedding bouquet which was a simple but beautiful posy of red roses. Both were equally heavy!

Why flowers?

I’m really fussy when it comes to flowers. My favourite is a simple bunch of tulips. I love flowers, but I really love simple bouquets. But that’s the great thing about flowers, there is something to suit everyone’s taste, from the simple, to the flamboyant.

I also think flowers are a lovely gift for any occasion. Flowers are for life, not just for Christmas, or in this case valentine’s. My only exception to this rule is don’t send flowers as a gift for a new mum. She’s got a new life to take care of, she doesn’t have time to take care of flowers right now too. Any other time they are a much appreciated gift. And a really simple way to say I’m thinking of you, thank-you, or I love you.

The bouquet I received from the flower shop came in an aqua pack and had easy to follow care instructions. They smelt amazing and are still going strong a week later.

Traditional or untraditional, that is the question.

Red roses are of course the traditional valentine’s bouquet, as they are the symbol of love. Your decision might simply be how many.

However, if you want a less traditional valentines gift, The Flower shop has something for everyone. From pretty colour pallets, to your recipients favourite blooms.

These are just a few examples of amazing boquets from The Flower Shop.

Or of course there is my kind of bouquet!
