The history of Valentine’s Day has always been rooted in love. While it has evolved from an ancient day of rituals to a religious celebration and, in modern times, a commercial holiday, Valentine’s Day has been and always will be a day for love. Today, Valentine’s Day is about celebrating all sorts of love, from Galentine’s Day with our girls to a day of self-love by ourselves and even giving thoughtful gifts to our family, friends, neighbors, and mentors. Here at Walter Knoll Florist, the top flower shop in St. Louis, MO, we are celebrating the mentors in our life that we simply love and adore. 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
Honoring teachers and coaches at the end of a school year is a thoughtful gesture to reward them for all of their hard work, support, wisdom, patience, and so much more. However, why wait until the year is over to express your appreciation and admiration? Valentine’s Day is an excellent time to send a colorful bouquet to brighten up their classroom or office. Choose symbolic flowers to symbolize resilience, youthfulness, wisdom, integrity, sincerity, and intuition with green and indigo blooms. You cannot go wrong with orchids, anemones, hydrangeas, iris, and gerbera daisies.
Gifts for Bosses & Coworkers
Our job satisfaction heavily depends on the relationships we have with our bosses and co-workers. The people who have the best job satisfaction ratings also tend to have quality bonds with the people they work with, seeing them as leaders, mentors, and even friends. From the collaboration and support on big projects to the life advice shared around the water cooler, these relationships deserve to be celebrated around Valentine’s Day. Sending your trusted boss or respected co-worker a bouquet of fresh, vibrant orange blooms expresses not just your appreciation but symbolizes warmth, success, excitement, enthusiasm, and passion for work and life.
Gifts for Mom & Dad
Send a heartfelt bouquet of pastel blooms or hardy stems to your mom or dad to thank them for their endless support, wise words of wisdom, and undying love. They have always been there to pick you up when you’re down and provide insight into the world around you, so a few slices of beef jerky simply won’t cut it this Valentine’s Day. Instead, a symbolic bouquet of flowers will express your sincere appreciation and reciprocated unconditional love.
Gifts for Grandma & Grampa
A Valentine’s Day gift from the heart is ideal for your fun-loving grandparents. One thoughtful option is a purple orchid, symbolizing tradition, elegance, dignity, refinement, pride, and admiration. Your grandmother will be so touched by the sentiment and love the delicate purple petals, while your grandfather’s heart will fill with warmth and become entranced by the beauty and wonder of Mother Nature.
Gifts for Older Siblings & Trusted Friends
The love we have for our older brothers, sisters, and friends who feel more like older siblings is an unbreakable bond and friendship like no other. Celebrating Galentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day with sisters, brothers, and close friends might mean a fun dinner out, a girls’ night in, or a surprise bouquet of colorful blooms. While blue aster and goldenrod represent sisterhood, low-maintenance and rich 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.
Flowers are the best go-to gift for anyone. Both men and women feel a boost of energy and a wave of happiness when presented with a dazzling bouquet of fresh blooms. With a range in color, shapes, sizes, luxury, and price, you can bet that whatever bouquet you select for your mentor will be unique and something they don’t already have.
