Whilst red roses will always be the most popular romantic gesture come Valentine's Day, there's a wide choice of loved-up floral gifts perfect for the romantic occasion. Here's a quick rundown of what Direct2Florist's network of talented floristry professionals will be busy with this year.The classic 12 red roses
A firm favourite for Valentine's Day, a dozen red roses is the classic romantic gesture. When ordering, consider how long you would like the rose stems to be - longer stems make for the ultimate gift, whilst shorter stems offer better value. And, contrary to myth, longevity of the roses will be more or less even whatever stem length you go for. If ordering for delivery to a place of work, opt for a hand-tied design where the roses will be delivered in a water bubble, ensuring a long life.The stylish single red rose
Single red roses, delivered in beautiful gift-wrapping or even a gift box look a million dollars. As well as superb value for money, a single rose is an excellent choice for when the lucky recipient will be carrying the gift home on public transport, for example, or if you're looking to combine flowers with chocolates, balloons, champagne or even a cuddly toy.The non-rose alternative
Due to global demand and the fact that February is probably the worst time of year for the production of roses, rose prices shoot up. Therefore, why not consider opting for alternative flowers. Tulips, gerberas, anthuriums and even orchids make brilliant gifts, whilst making it look like you've given the gift some thought.
