As January nears its end, it means one thing: Valentine’s Day is round the corner.
A day where we celebrate love and show our partners how much they mean to us, on this special day, no gesture is too big or too small.
If you’re looking to give your partner some flowers, but don’t want to splash out over a hundred dollars on blooms, you’ll be glad to know that affordable options are not that hard to find these days.
Here are 10 florists that sell beautiful bouquets – fresh and dried – at wallet-friendly prices, so you can show your affection without burning a huge hole in your pocket.
After all, it’s the thought and not the amount of money you spend that counts.
1. The Bloom Room
A floral shop that typically sells bouquets that are on the pricier side, The Bloom Room is showing us all some love this Valentine’s Day by selling petite floral bouquets, so we can all experience the joy of giving and receiving flowers on the day of love.
Do take note that delivery is not free, so drop by to pick up your flowers, and save that extra money for something else!
2. The Enchanted Tree
If you haven’t heard of The Enchanted Tree, get acquainted – especially if your partner loves receiving flowers.
A company that believes in making flowers affordable anywhere in Singapore, their hand bouquets are priced at $30 each. Yes, that’s a $30 flat fee that includes delivery.
These $30 bouquets – otherwise known as ‘Daily Picks‘ – differ on a day to day* basis, so what you get really depends on what they’re selling on that particular day.
*A different style is put created everyday from Monday to Friday, excluding PH.
3. Windflower Florist
Another go-to florist for affordable bouquets is Windflower Florist. They’re the ones responsible for the dried flower vending machines you may have seen around Singapore!
If your partner loves the look of dried flowers, you should definitely give Windflower Florist’s catalog a browse. Dried lavender bouquets start at $33, while $48 can get you pink, blue, purple bouquets and more with some whimsical cotton flowers.
Fresh flower bouquets here are similarly wallet-friendly, with a good selection of affordable options starting at $43.
4. The Bloom Box
For a more unique Valentine’s Day gift, why not get blooms in a box?
The Bloom Box rejects the notion that flower bouquets need to be expensive, reserved for special occasions, and come wrapped in coloured paper. As such, they’ve created floral boxes, and they offer only one type of box a day at $35 nett (inclusive of delivery).
Designed with a handle, these floral boxes are definitely a lot handier than the traditional hand bouquet. Their Valentine’s Day designs are out, and are available for pre-order.
Another unconventional bouquet idea is a felt floral bouquet. That is, flowers made of felt material.
These quirky bouquets are created by Adorninglory, a felt and fresh floral artist. For Valentine’s Day this year, Adorninglory will be selling 4 types of felt bouquets, as well as 1 dried flower bouquet.
Prices start at $39 for a felt floral bouquet, and their hand-calligraphed card + bouquet set is tagged at $55.
Price: From $39
For more rustic bouquets, check out the selection at Fleuriste.
For fresh bouquets, the Everyday Petite Posy costs $40 while the Everyday Medium Bouquet costs $55. Here, you’ll find many soft pastel blooms, rather than the loud, bolder hues you typically see in more old school floral shops.
Their Valentine’s Day collection is also very affordable, starting at $55 for a simple bouquet of baby’s breath, cotton flowers and roses.
7. Skinny Blooms
For an all-in-one Valentine’s Day gift, you can turn to Skinny Blooms.
Aside from dainty bouquets, which start at $40 for a Dainty Posy, they also sell floral gift sets. That is, flowers with an added gift, such as bralettes in their I’m in x Petite Beauty Set ($98) and lipsticks in their Vely Vely x Dainty Posy set ($83).
With that, your Valentine’s Day gift is pretty much settled, and all that’s left to do is show your lady a good time.
8. Keira Floral
A relatively lesser known brand, Keira Floral is a name many brides and bride-to-bes will know.
If your partner likes her flowers wild, natural, and looking like they’ve been plucked straight out of the garden, she’ll love the bouquets Keira Floral puts together.
Pre-orders are open until 10 February, so be sure to put in your order to avoid disappointment! We have a feeling the bouquets here will sell like hotcakes.
9. Dawn Q
If your special someone is a fan of more natural floral arrangements that come with a bit more foliage, try Dawn Q.
Their bouquets start at $65 and come with plenty of greenery and quirky little details.
Dawn Q has also released her own Valentine’s Day bouquet range, with prices starting at $65 for a dried flower bouquet.
10. Petite Fleur
For more sophisticated bouquets, try Petite Fleur.
With flowers in pretty pastel hues of pink, purple and blue, these romantic bouquets are surely the way to a woman’s heart.
Prices start at $69 for a bouquet of purple roses with Dusty Miller and Baby’s Breath, or a simple 8-stalk rose bouquet. They also sell round and square flower boxes which are a nice change of pace from handheld bouquets. Flower boxes start from $60.
This Valentine’s Day, give your special someone the gift of flowers. After all, a little romance never killed anyone.
