Valentine’s Day isn’t only for your “Sweetheart.” It’s a perfect time to send floral love to “Non-Sweeties,” too. Here is my top five list of favorite “Non-Sweeties” to send flowers to for Valentine’s Day:


We know you show your daughters love all year round, but make them feel extra special on Valentine’s Day with a beautiful floral arrangement. Ask your florist for playful gerbera daisies, pink Asiatic lilies, hot pink spray roses and miniature hot pink carnations. Your little angel will love it.


Don’t forget the little man in your life. Sons love gifts, too, and every boy loves candy. Your florist can deliver a snack-attack gift basket. It is a manly Valentine’s Day surprise for your son.


I can’t count how many times my grandparents have made me feel special throughout the years. So, why not return the love by sending them lovely red and pink tulips. They are refreshing and will bring a big smile to any grandparent’s face.


Your neighbor helps you out throughout the year. They take care of your garden and pick up your mail when you’re out of town. Thank them for their friendship by sending them a flower garden in a basket with the bright pink sweet heart roses, light pink ranunculus and light pink alstroemeria. Your florist can even weave ivy around the basket’s wicker handle.

Show a dear friend at work how much you appreciate them by sending a memorable thank-you gift. A dish garden filled with succulents and lucky bamboo is a perfect office gift. It’s easy to take care of and looks perfect on a desk.
