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 Nanz and Kraft Florists, the top flower shop in Louisville, KY, 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
At the end of a school year or season, we often gift our teachers and coaches a fresh bouquet of flowers, especially during a banquet or ceremony. But why save the blooms for one occasion only? Honoring those who give you some of the best advice and instruction, set you up for success, and cheer you on should be done more often. Valentine’s Day is a fantastic time to send them flowers that symbolize resilience (green) or wisdom and integrity (indigo). Iris, orchids, larkspur, and anemones are excellent symbolic options and will give their desk or office a pop of color.
Gifts for Bosses & Coworkers
Bosses and co-workers are other mentors we interact with on a daily basis and help set us up for success. From lending ideas and advice on projects to pushing us to exceed goals and chatting with us about life outside of work, they always seem to be there when we need them. Return the favor this Valentine’s Day by bringing a fresh and vibrant floral arrangement into the office. Orange flowers are not only a great color to brighten the workplace, but they also represent success, exuberance, joy, and passion for work and life.
Gifts for Mom & Dad
The day to celebrate love would be incomplete without honoring those who give us unconditional love our entire lives. In addition to their love, whether you’re a kid, teenager, or grown adult, our moms and dads never stop dishing out loving advice and words of wisdom. So, to thank them for their endless support and guidance, gift them a Valentine’s Day floral bouquet they will swoon over. While mom may enjoy a dainty white, lavender, or pink arrangement, dad will marvel over a hardy collection of bold and rich blooms.
Gifts for Grandma & Grampa
From teaching us how to bake and cook to showing us around the garden and tool shed and even giving us a hand when it came time to check the oil in our car, grandmothers and grandfathers are other examples of critical mentors. They are fun-loving, always ready to spoil us with treats, and never fail to greet us with the biggest bear hugs, no matter how old we are. This Valentine’s Day, it’s time to spoil them! Purple orchids are a thoughtful sentiment that both your grandma and grandpa can enjoy and admire. These flowering plants also signify elegance, adoration, pride, refinement, admiration, success, and tradition.
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.
