Few gifts say "I love you" quite like a jaw-dropping bouquet from our friends at Blush Flowers.
To make this Valentine's Day that little bit more special, we've teamed up with the crème de la crème of florists, to create a truly unique offering for your beloved. Whether your Valentine has a penchant for orchids or a fancy for hydrangeas, there's quite literally something to appease to even the pickiest partner.
Here are six beautiful bloom and baking ideas to gift to someone special on the most romantic day of the year. You can thank us later for this one.
1. Purple Hydrangeas and Mixed Berry, Rosewater and Crushed Meringue Marshmallow
What this says about your Valentine: What's not to love about hydrangeas? Bountiful, long-lasting and a welcome pop of colour, this beautiful bloom is seriously trending. In season and in abundance, the hydrangea is the perfect offering for the happy-go-lucky, easy-going Valentine. Few offerings match up to the gooey deliciousness of our Mixed Berry, Rosewater and Crushed Meringue Marshmallow – a moreish sweet treat that'll leave you craving seconds.
2. Orchids and Salted Caramel, Whiskey and Dark Chocolate Truffles
What this says about your Valentine: Strike the perfect chord between decadence and deliciousness with a beautiful bouquet of orchids and our rich, indulgent Salted Caramel, Whiskey and Dark Chocolate Truffles. Spoil your stylish and sophisticated significant other with a bloom that boasts rarity and wonder.
3. Red Roses and Flourless Chocolate Torte
What this says about your Valentine: Consider this the gift to trump all others if you're looking to appease to the classic, timeless palate. Few combinations compare to velvety red roses and a slice of rich chocolate torte. Sometimes, you just don't mess with a winning formula, and this combination is an absolute winner.
4. Peonies and Chocolate, Hazelnut and Fresh Raspberry Tart
What this says about your Valentine: The bridal bloom of the season, peonies typically bloom from October to early December. While they may be tricky to procure, the peony is a beautiful pop of colour, a fun, full bloom that suggests "I don't take myself too seriously." As they open up, watch them change form. Much like our Chocolate, Hazelnut and Fresh Raspberry Tart, the peony is the perfect crowd-pleaser.
5. White Roses and White Chocolate Blondies
What this says about your Valentine: Is there anything more elegant than a bouquet of white roses? Your Valentine will fall head-over-heels for these gorgeous florals, and love you twice as much when presented with freshly-baked White Chocolate Blondies...
6. Yellow Roses and Lemon Cakes with Mascarpone and Lemon Curd
What this says about your Valentine: Say "Hello, sunshine" with a beautiful bouquet – you can never go wrong with yellow roses. Long-associated with the sun and its life-giving warmth, yellow suggests warm feelings of friendship, optimism, courage and stability. Paired with our zesty and delicious Lemon Cakes, grab two forks and split one of these little beauties with your long-time love.
