Valentine’s day has a history deeply rooted in love, and while it began as an ancient ritual, it has worked its way into being a commercial holiday with great importance to our culture. It has always been and always will be a day for love. Today we celebrate all kinds of love on Valentine’s day, from celebrating friendships with a girl’s night out to a day of self-love to showing our family how much they mean to us with thoughtful gifts to express our love. Here at Zeidler’s Flowers, the top florist in Evansville, IN, we are celebrating the mentors in our life that we love. Without some of these mentors, our lives would certainly have taken different paths. So, this Valentine’s Day, we are expressing our gratitude, appreciation, and love with thoughtful flowers.
Show Your Gratitude with Valentine’s Day Flowers
Gifts for Teachers & Coaches
Often times we honor our teachers and coaches with flowers at the end of a year or season, particularly if they won an award. However, Valentine’s day gives you another excellent opportunity to celebrate them with an amazing floral bouquet to express your appreciation for their guidance, lessons, patience, and knowledge. For mentors, both women and men, green flowers and petals signify luck, resilience, and youthfulness, indigo flowers can represent wisdom, integrity, intuition, structure, and sincerity, and red anthuriums are sure to brighten up their home, classroom, or office.
Gifts for Bosses & Coworkers
While the first people who come to mind when we think about those we love are family members, many of us have a family that we work with as well. Interacting with bosses and co-workers that lift you up, challenge you, and bring out the best in you is another relationship worth celebrating. To honor mentorship and leadership or cohesion in the workplace, bring exciting and uplifting flowers into the office for them this Valentine’s Day. Success, enthusiasm, exuberance, and passion for both life and work are linked to orange flowers. Birds of paradise is also a vibrant and colorful blooming plant to show your thoughtfulness and love.
Gifts for Mom & Dad
No one deserves appreciation from us more than our parents, and in the spirit of celebrating love, an arrangement of flowers is an excellent way to remind your parents how much you love and appreciate them this Valentine’s day. Select some dainty pink, white, and lavender blooms for your mother to swoon over and/or some bold, rich, and sturdy flowers for your father to be delighted by.
Gifts for Grandma & Grampa
Our parents may have played the biggest role in our lives, but it’s important to recognize the role our grandparents have played in our lives, too. Maybe they acted as confidants when we needed someone to listen, or maybe they were always there, ready to give you a big hug and pass on some wisdom with each treat whenever you saw them. However your grandparents helped you growing up, return the love this Valentine’s day with a stunning floral arrangement that will bring a smile to their faces and warm their hearts. Exotic flowers like orchids are a great choice, full of extensive symbolism and stunning beauty. Purple orchids and other purple blooms that symbolize elegance, admiration, dignity, refinement, pride, success, tradition, and adoration are perfect gifts for a grandparent or grandparents.
Gifts for Older Siblings & Trusted Friends
Siblings can be a pain when growing up, but at the end of the day, the bond between siblings is unlike anything else. The love we have for our sisters, brothers, and friends who feel more like siblings is indescribable. Celebrating Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day with siblings and close friends might mean a fun girls’ night out, a luxurious dinner out, and perhaps a surprise bouquet of colorful blossoms. Sisterhood is represented by blue aster and goldenrod, while low-maintenance and jewel-toned hues are ideal for brothers and close guy friends. In general, yellow flowers are a bright and sunny symbol of happiness, lightheartedness, positivity, and friendship, making them a go-to gift for just about everyone.
Flowers make an excellent gift for anyone on your shopping list because of the variability in their symbolism and range in color, size, shape, luxury, and price. Everyone, regardless of their personalities, can find some joy when presented with a dazzling bouquet of fresh blooms.
