For The Classic Romantic: 12 Red Roses
A classic bouquet of 12 red roses is the most traditional gift on Valentines Day, and it’s a long-standing symbol of love and adoration. Additionally, red roses symbolize passionate love, unity and togetherness. This goes all the way back to olden times! Flowers were first used as a means of communication under Queen Victoria, when it became a common practice to send them as gifts. It was through sending a bunch of twelve red roses that lovers confessed their love to a lady.
But, why twelve roses? This has a very profound meaning! There are twelve roses on the bouquet, one for every month of the year, representing the promise that you will love your partner always. Since there are 12 months in a year, 12 numbers on a clock, and 12 zodiac signs, many believe that 12 represents a complete life cycle- so therefore, 12 red roses symbolize lifelong love and companionship.
Valentine's Day is the perfect time to send your loved one a dozen red roses and make them feel extra special.
