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 Ah Sam Floral Co., the top florist in San Mateo, 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
Teachers and coaches have big jobs, from showing patience to instilling educational knowledge among life lessons and supporting their students in all sorts of ways. While many students gift their teachers and coaches flowers at the end of the year, it is important to express your love and appreciation all year round. Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to help brighten up their classroom or office with flowers that signify resilience, youthfulness, wisdom, integrity, intuition, and sincerity, such as green and indigo blooms. Hydrangeas, orchids, button poms, anemones, iris, and larkspur are just a few flowers that your mentor will love.
Gifts for Bosses & Coworkers
Gifting your boss or co-workers a fresh and joyful flower bouquet this Valentine’s Day is a thoughtful way to thank them for being wonderful mentors and friends. Honor their leadership with orange blooms that represent creativity, enthusiasm, warmth, excitement, and passion for work and life. Not only will this sentiment express your respect and admiration for their leadership, but it will also add a burst of color and energy to the workplace.
Gifts for Mom & Dad
There is no better candidate to be your valentine than the person who loves you the most and unconditionally- your mom or dad! Whether you’ve wanted to hear their advice and words of wisdom or not, they were given to you each and every day as you grew into the person you are today. Cherish this unconditional love and send your parents a colorful bouquet filled with love and gratitude. From a pastel collection of white, pink, and lavender flowers for mom to hardy stems or plants like succulents for dad, your gift will make their hearts melt.
Gifts for Grandma & Grampa
If you’re looking to spoil your grandparents on Valentine’s Day like they did when you were little with endless love, hugs, goodies, and encouragement, consider purple orchids. As a symbol of refinement, elegance, success, pride, dignity, adoration, admiration, and tradition, it’s the ideal sentiment for both your grandmother and grandfather. Whether a collection of orchids filling a vase or a potted plant ready for TLC, it’s a gift that keeps on giving.
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.
