A regular old bouquet of roses is so last year.
Make this Valentine’s Day one to remember by picking up those classic reds, but adding a little twist to the go-to present.
There are flower stores throughout Canada offering preserved bouquets that last a full year through. No need for watering, sunlight, or any care at all – just make sure you don’t let them freeze, and you’re good to go!
The flowers are generally offered in boxes of escalating size and grandeur, though some also offer single roses.
While most of the florists offer delivery, Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, and showing up empty handed on the big day is never a good look. Save yourself the worry of cross-Canada delivery by checking out the store closest to you, whether you’re in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, or Montreal.
What: Offering flowers of many different colours and collections, Symphonie Des Roses has the preserved rose game down in the Vancouver area. Choose from a single large rose that lasts for a full year to a box of dozens to show that special someone that your love for them will never wilt.
Where: Vancouver, online store
