The Guy’s Guide to Valentine’s Day

There’s a lot of pressure surrounding Valentine’s Day! Girls may say they don’t want anything extravagant, but they do. Let us help you make Valentine’s Day easy with our 14 simple ways to spread love. 

1. Surprise them with a unique flower.

Surprise your significant other with a unique and new flower, the Rose Lily. The new double-bloom Rose Lily is pollen free, lightly scented and the perfect companion to any rose arrangement. It is featured in two English Gardens exclusive arrangements — Love and Lilies and Lily Rose. 

2. Brighten her office with Orchids.

When she walks into work, surprise her with a beautiful orchid plant.  Orchids provide a much-needed pop of color, and will bloom for months. They are very effective at removing xylene from the air and releasing copious amounts of oxygen.   

3. Give something sweet.

Every girl loves flower, but she also loves chocolate! Gift something sweet such as Sanders Valentine’s Day treats.

4. Be the chef.

You be the chef and spread the love with homemade dishes. Use fresh, organic herbs from your kitchen garden to add some interest to your food. 

5. Write a love letter.

Handwritten love letters are always in style. Write a love letter on a Valentine’s Day card and send it to your significant other. 

6. Give her some breathing room.

Give her some breathing room with house plants, of course! Numerous house plants, such as the Areca Palm, ZZ Plant or Peace Lily, purify the air of any toxins. Explore our complete list of air cleaning house plants. 

7. Give the classic gift of roses.

Red roses symbolize romantic love, beauty and courage. However, if her favorite color is pink, give a bouquet of pink roses. There are many colors available, including white, pink, purple, and more.

Explore our rose Valentine’s Day arrangements. 

8. Decorate her office with balloons.

Blow away your Valentine’s Day date! Balloons are a simple addition to any floral arrangement and add that extra special touch. 

9. Surprise her with flowers.

Does your significant other have a favorite flower? Is it Hydrangeas or Carnations? English Gardens offers a wide variety of Valentine’s Day arrangements to match their style. Visit our online florist shop.

10. Give the gift of fashion.

Every girl loves clothes and jewelry! English Gardens carries a selection of high-quality clothing and accessories. Selection varies by location. 

11. Mix a Valentine’s Day cocktail for her.

Toast to Valentine’s Day with specialty cocktails incorporating fresh herbs from your kitchen garden:

  • Pomegranate Seeds
  • Fresh Mint Leaves

12. Say it with a floral fragrance.

Say ‘I Love You’ with a floral-scented candle or hand lotion. English Gardens carries Stonewall Lavender Mint lotion and candles to leave your home smelling sweet. The Thymes Lavender Hand Lotion moisturizes skin and creates a soothing palette for your senses. 

13. Gift a shopping trip.

Not sure what to get her? English Gardens gift cards allow her to shop for whatever she wants! Plus, they can be delivered right to your door. Order today. 

14. Give a brightly colored Cyclamen.

The Cyclamen’s bright blooms and unique heart-shaped leaves make it the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day! Cyclamen prefer high humidity, bright and indirect light and watering when the top inch of soil is dry.
