Since ancient times, especially in art and literature, the gift of flowers has been an absolute symbol of romance. Flowers are thus a universal message of love that can be given:

  • During the major stages of your life together: moving in, engagement, etc., to symbolize this new stage in your relationship For the lovers’ day, Valentine’s Day, on February 14th.

2 How To Choose The Flowers To Give?

Once you’ve decided that you’re going to give flowers, it’s time to choose what your gift will consist of. If you’re not sure, don’t hesitate to ask your florist to help you choose.

In the meantime, I will give you some tips to please the recipient of your gift.

  • GIVE MEANING TO HIS GIFT USING THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS As we saw in the previous lines with the Rose, flowers can carry a hidden meaning and significance. If you would like to be inspired by the language of flowers to make your gift, here are some hints to make your choice:
  • Hyacinth: kindness and gentleness
  • The Orchid: love and fertility
  • In the Far East, this flower is considered to have aphrodisiac properties.
  • Lily of the valley (around May 1st): good luck
  • Peony: shyness
  • Tulip: greatness, fame.
  • The red Tulip corresponds to a declaration of love.
  • White lily: purity of feelings
  • The Amaryllis: beauty, coquetry. This flower can be offered to signify to a woman that she is beautiful.
  • Pink carnation: sincerity
  • White lily / Orchids / Amarylis

Have you decided to use the language of flowers?

Remember to explain the meaning of your gift to the woman you are giving it to. She will be happy and surprised to discover the message you want to convey through your choice of plants.

Be careful, though, as some flowers should be avoided for a love gift. These include:

  • Chrysanthemum (especially white). This flower is traditionally associated with death and mourning in the West.
  • Anemone

Superstitious people never offer it on wedding anniversaries: it would be a bad omen. It is never used in bridal bouquets for the same reason.


To make your gift successful, it is important to take care of your choice of colors.

If you’ve been to her house before, you can trust her decor. She will appreciate that her gift matches her home.

If you have not been to her home, you can observe her clothes, her jewelry… to know if she prefers warm or cold colors. If she wears a lot of bright colors, brightly colored flowers will surely please her!

If you’re not sure, you can opt for pastel flowers. These soft colors have the advantage of being very easy to match and appeal to a large number of people.


Considered the queen of flowers, the Rose has great success for romantic gifts. It evokes love, of course, but depending on the color chosen, its meaning is tinged with nuances. Here are the keys to decoding the meaning of these colors:

  • Red: passionate love
  • Pink: tender love
  • White: pure love
  • Yellow: jealous love (Beware, the yellow rose is often associated with infidelity…)
  • Orange: joyful love, friendship
  • Lilac: love at first sight

The color of the roses is not the only thing that matters: indeed, the number chosen can have a meaning too:

  • 1 rose: first date, love at first sight
  • 3 roses: declaration of love
  • 5 roses: admiration
  • 9 roses: romance
  • 12 roses: marriage proposal
  • 17 roses: to celebrate your 17 years of marriage or wedding anniversary
  • 50 roses: love forever
  • 100 roses: infinite and eternal love
  • Below 12 roses, I advise you to always choose an odd number to achieve a harmonious bouquet.

These rather classic gifts still appeal to many today. They highlight the flowers you have chosen and decorate the house for sometimes more than ten days, depending on the maintenance and freshness of the chosen plants.

Concerning the bouquet, this one can be round, in height, pyramidal, blurred… Do not hesitate to ask something original to the professional who will realize it.

The blurred country bouquets are currently very fashionable and appeal to many people.

If you don’t know if the person you are sending the gift to has a vase, you can have your bouquet wrapped in a water bubble or opt for a composition.

In this type of arrangement, the flowers are set in hydrophilic foam and are therefore hydrated for a long time. You have chosen to have an arrangement made? In this case, you can vary the shapes and colors: For something spectacular and imposing, choose a composition stitched in height.

For something more discreet, more tender, I recommend a low and rather rounded composition.

So remember the importance of the type of flower and their number when it comes to roses. Now you know when and how to give flowers to a woman!
