Any gift that comes from the heart will be remembered for quite some time. This is why giving your valentine's day flowers their own unique flair will always be remembered.

- Foliage art gives texture, color, shape, and proportion to your valentine's day flowers. Palm leaves and eucalyptus are two popular additions to floral arrangements.
Sometimes it's the simple things that matter. Ask your florist for quick easy was to spruce up our flowers.
4. Dinner, Flowers and a Little Something Extra
No Valentine's day flowers arrived at her office and she's feeling blue. The plan is to take her to a fancy restaurant and have the waiter bring the bouquet of roses out before dessert.
Imagine her surprise when she sees the ring boxed tucked safely between the rosebuds.
If the restaurant you choose isn't a 5-Star steakhouse, no problem. When her favorite eatery is a country-themed diner, the plan can still work. Have someone close to her make a special delivery. A cutesy bundle of mixed flowers tied with a ribbon to match her simplicity.
The surprise this time is the diamond ring hanging from the bow.
Even if marriage isn't on the horizon, any form of jewelry will be an added touch to your floral bouquet.
Valentine's Day isn't always a couple's thing. If the kids are tagging along you can incorporate gifts for them. Maybe you can give them a stuffed animal with a ribbon matching the one on mom's flowers.
5. Workplace Delivery
Let's face it, the ultimate way to deliver valentine's day flowers are to her workplace. If you decide to go this route, make sure they are in a floral arrangement that will make her proud to be your lady.
To make the delivery unique, there are a few things you can do to sweeten the bouquet.
Maybe you have an upcoming trip planned to the beautiful island of Hawaii. Send her a special reminder. Instead of traditional roses, send her an arrangement with exotic flowers.
Have a close coworker of hers sign for the delivery and take them to her desk carrying Hawaiian leis that she passes out to others along the way. By the time the coworker reaches her desk, the other ladies will be in total awe.
Not only will they think she is the luckiest girl in the world, but you'll win kudos of your own. Plus the entire office will smell like a tropical paradise.
Speaking of fragrant flowers, if the flowers you choose do not have a strong fragrance, spray them with her favorite perfume. Lilac, Freesia, Rose, and Orchid are popular floral scents.
6. Flowers and Movie Tickets Make a Great Combination
Tickets to a romantic movie or play make for an excellent gift. Do you place the tickets inside a card and lay it on the table during breakfast? Or, do you come up with something to accent the moment?
You can't go wrong with a gift of a nice flower arrangement. To make the arrangement pop, instead of a standard card include a "Date Card" asking that she meet you at a designated location at a set time.
Another option is to place the tickets on the cardholder. The prospect of a romantic evening with the man she loves will have her daydreaming all day.
In addition, this unique valentine's day flowers set-up will also remind her how lucky she is to have such a thoughtful guy in her life.
Another fun theme is to send the valentines flowers in a clear cylinder vase and fill it halfway with red rocks or miniature hearts. You could also include a box of chocolates.
7. Sports Themed Floral Arrangements
This unique idea for giving valentines flowers is similar to the above set-up. Instead of movie tickets or a night at the theater, celebrate his favorite sports team.
If his favorite sports team is local or within driving distance, why not sweeten the pot with a pair of tickets to an upcoming game. Other suggested items include a miniature ball, flowers and/or balloons in his team's colors.
Another idea is to find a bobblehead doll of his favorite player or the team's mascot. Include the bobblehead in a dish garden or candy basket.
Either method is sure to make you a winner in his eyes. You give him something he truly adores. You also get to prove that you're paying attention and know what he likes.
8. Create Her Very Own Flower Stand

Don't forget to have someone filming the entire exchange.
