We have a stunning selection of romantic bouquets, stunning arrangements and luxury gifts. So whoever you may be surprising this Valentine’s Day – may it be a partner in crime, BFF or special Mum – you can celebrate love of all kinds on February 14th. Have something specific in mind? Our talented team can use their artistic skill to create a bespoke bouquet – from 100 pink roses to a beautiful bunch of favourite blooms, we will be happy to help spread the love!
The story behind sending flowers dates back to old times, when they were used to communicate and send messages as each flower and colour has a specific meaning. For example red roses symbolise deep love and affection, white roses symbolise innocence and hope and yellow roses symbolise joy and friendship. The number of roses sent also has a hidden meaning – 1 rose symbolises ‘you are the one’ and 12 roses means ‘be mine’.
Nowadays, red roses are the most recognised flower linked to Valentine’s Day – but Funky Flowers have lots of different options from classic bouquets, contemporary designs or pretty floral arrangements in an array of colours and flowers, so you can choose the perfect bouquet for your loved one.
Give your heart this Valentine’s Day
Our beautiful Gold Rose Heart Box is the perfect way to show that special person just how much you love them. A contemporary design, this floral gift is hand made using Red and Gold preserved Roses, beautifully presented in a luxury hatbox and finished with ribbon. Preserved Roses are a stunning gift, using real roses and naturally preserving them with a unique technique they last for a minimum of a year in pristine condition.

We stock a range of Yankee Candles in an assortment of scents including Midnight Jasmine and Vanilla Cupcake, delicious Belgium truffle chocolates and Laurent-Perrier Champagne to enjoy a glass of bubbles.
