What is love or romance? It's a feeling of affection, love and affection between two people that bonds them as a couple, sometimes for life. It's as simple as that.
Enjoying romantic moments together and celebrating togetherness brings happiness, Valentines day is an excuse to be happy and show your love.
In many countries, we celebrate this romance between two people on Saint Valentine's day, the 14th of February each year. The tradition of giving cards and gifts began in 1797 in the UK, and now just under half of the population spend money on their Valentines each year. Around the world, the day traditions are similar—a chance to show your love for someone special. Interestingly, the largest buyers of valentines day cards in the USA are teachers for their classes, ensuring every child has a valentine's on the day.
Valentine cards, chocolate and flowers have been the traditional gifts, but things are changing. Once posted to each other, traditional cards are now emailed, more healthy foods have replaced chocolate, and houseplants are replacing flowers as the more sustainable and longer-lasting gift. The gift that grows!
So this valentine, ditch the overpriced flowers and gift houseplants that will last longer than just a few days.
Happy houseplants have curated a beautiful and unique collection of gifts and houseplants that will make the perfect valentines day gifts for you and the plant-obsessed partner in your life. From hand-poured scented candles to the longest blooming houseplants to plants with heart-shaped leaves—something romantic and practical for everyone. We will even include a free gift card with your romantic message.
We love this unusual and hard to find Anthurium - it really has that jungle look! The leaves of the Anthurium Clarinervium are large, dark green (almost black), heart-shaped and have a beautiful velvet texture.
