We’re talking about a girlfriend here, so no matter what you choose, you should always include a flower which is a symbol of love, such as the Aster. However, this doesn’t mean that your bouquet should only include Asters. You can add as many different kinds of flowers as you want until you get a bouquet that completely translates what you’ve meant by handing it over. According to floraqueen.com, here are some of the most popular flower meanings:

  • Aloe (Healing, Protection, Affection)
  • Amaryllis (Pride)
  • Angelica (Inspiration)
  • Apple Blossom (Preference)
  • Aster (Love)
  • Begonia (Beware)
  • Bittersweet (Truth)
  • Black-Eyed Susan (Justice)
  • Red Camellia (You’re a Flame in My Heart)
  • Carnation (Women, Love)
  • Red Tulip (Passion, Declaration of Love)

There are many different flowers with different meanings, but these are some of the most popular ones. Feel free to do further research if you want to add other flowers to your bouquet as well.

Getting to know what she likes

If she is your girlfriend, you need to know things about her, including what kind of flowers she prefers and which ones are her favorite. If you want to make things even more interesting, you can ask one of her best friends about what she likes, and then leave her wondering how you got this information. Of course, this should be done if you’re in a newer relationship and you still don’t know everything about each other. In a more serious relationship, you should know these things yourself.

Consulting with a professional

If it is your first time purchasing flowers for someone, or you have no idea how to choose the best bouquet, feel free to ask someone who’s more experienced. Usually, the people who work at a flower shop will tell you everything that you need to know, as well as help you make the right choice. Don’t be afraid or ashamed to ask, not everyone is a specialist in flowers, the people who work there will be glad to help you.

Make sure it’s a surprise

You can either send the bouquet at her doorstep, or you can have someone else deliver it to her workplace. Either way, make sure that it’s a surprise and she doesn’t see it coming. If you want to make things even more interesting, don’t include a name on the gift card. It’s your choice, after all, so feel free to do whatever you think will work best and leave her the most impressed. We’re pretty sure that you’re going to make the right decision, so go ahead and make the perfect flower bouquet for your girlfriend!
