Cut flowers quickly wilt and will litter your floor with dying petals. Not really the picturesque gift you want to be giving for Valentine's Day to represent your relationship. If you are looking for something romantic, thoughtful, and long-lasting, consider buying a plant instead! A beautiful plant in a fashionable container functions as house decor and is a lot more creative than the dozen stemmed roses that will be insanely overpriced this time of year. Here are 8 romantic Valentine's Day plant options to consider for your partner!

Flamingo Flower

1. Flamingo Flower

With red heart-shaped flowers that bloom off and on year-long, it isn't hard to see why this romantic flower is an easy pick. Also known as the Red Anthurium, it symbolizes warm-heartedness. It can make any room pop with its dark green foliage and shiny ruby flowers, making it our pick for those who appreciate the sophisticated


Maidenhair Fern

2. Fern (Maidenhair)

If you have ever watched 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,' you may know that a Love Fern is a fern bought and cared for by a couple to test the bonds of their relationship. While that may be a bit intimidating, we still suggest the fern as an elegant plant for gifting this Valentine's Day. The Maidenhair Fern is a winning pick as it is safe for pets, and is the perfect pop of lacy green for those who appreciate the natural and delicate.

Succulent Valentine's Day

3. Succulent (Echeveria)

Succulents are one of the best plants for Valentine's Day. While not overtly romantic, they are extremely popular due to being nearly indestructible with enough light, and they are easy to propagate. This small plant is perfect for windowsills and shelves, and even inexperienced plant owners will have luck with them. We suggest the Echeveria for their rosette shape and uniquely tinted leaves. This is a perfect starter plant for a beginner plant owner that still is charming and will bring character to a room!

 Kalanchoe for Valentine's Day

4. Kalanchoe

Another hardy succulent, the Kalanchoe flowers naturally every spring with beautiful yellow, orange, red, pink, or white flowers. These romantic blossoms are a sign of eternal love due to their long natural blooming period of 8 weeks. This is the perfect romantic flowery gift even for those who seem to be missing their green thumbs


5. Bromeliad

Safe for pets and easy for beginners, the Bromeliad is a natural art piece. In the same family as the pineapple plant, the gorgeous red center and evergreen leaves make it a visually stunning pick. If you are looking for a showstopper present to impress your partner, this is it.

String of Pearls

6. String of pearls

If you are looking for an easy-to-care-for succulent but want something striking, this is the perfect romantic plant present. A whimsical beauty, the String of Pearls succulent gets its name from the necklace-like appearance of the draping stems. This looks particularly captivating when in a hanging planter and is a visually unique plant without any hassle. 

Split Leaf Phimodendron

7. Monstera

Also known as the Split Leaf Philodendron, this tropical plant brings joy to a home space and is fun to grow. They are great air purifiers and are perfect room pieces. This plant is gaining popularity as influencers love using it in interior design, and it often appears in advertising due to its beautiful leaves. If you are looking to find a quality home decor Valentine's Day gift, this is it!


8. Gardenia 

Gorgeous white rose-like flowers and charming green leaves have made this a classic Valentine's Day gift. Besides being a symbol of gentleness, this flower symbolizes secret love, and parallels are often drawn to Romeo and Juliet. This is perfect for someone looking for a delicate flowering plant gift that exudes traditional Valentine's Day romance and charm.
