3. Purple Orchids

Orchids generally mean fertility and elegance, however purple orchids symbolise admiration and respect. If you admire your partner, why not gift them some purple orchids on Valentine's day.


4. Pink Roses

You may already know that roses mostly correspond with love and passion, however roses can also mean secrecy or confidentiality. Pink roses particularly symbolise, gratitude, grace, admiration, and joy.

Show your loved one your gratitude and joy for them this Valentine’s Day with a beautiful pink rose.


5. Carnations

Carnations grow in a large range of colors including white, red, pink, yellow, and purple. 

The key to giving the right color carnation to your partner is understanding what each one symbolise:

Pink carnations symbolise gratitude while red carnations symbolise affection. If you wish for good luck and purity in a relationship give your lover a white carnation.

Or you can give a bouquet of mixed carnations, if you cannot decide!
