Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and although we won’t be going out for any romantic meals this year, the one thing you can do is send some Valentine’s flowers.

We’re not big fans of red roses at The Boutique Handbook, so we’ve rounded up the alternative bouquets we’d love to receive instead.

All the companies listed deliver nationwide, but order early to avoid disappointment.

The Real Flower Company

Grace & Thorn pride themselves on the fact no two of their bouquets are ever the same, so Valentine’s flowers from here are guaranteed to be bespoke.

This stunning Wild Horses bouquet (from £90) is giving us 70s vibes, and is the kind of thing we picture in Stevie Nicks’ dressing room.

If you want something more traditional check out their Valentine’s Day collection.

You can’t go wrong with Valentine’s flowers in a hat box – and we love the Valentine’s collection from Pinks and Roses.

Run by a mother and daughter duo from London, their flowers are attracting celebrity attention despite only launching their business last April.

Our favourite is Peachy Passion (pictured), a beautiful rose bouquet mixed with lisianthus, helleborus and sweetly scented eucalyptus.

Prices from £70, nationwide delivery available

Bloom & Wild

Letterbox flower favourites, Bloom & Wild, agree with our theory on red roses – to the point where they aren’t selling any on their website this year.

Instead they have an array of different Valentine’s flowers on offer, ranging from hand-tied bouquets to dried flower creations.

Our favourite is The Vivienne & Truffles (£52, pictured), which comes with pink champagne truffles. We’re also fans of Lily bouquet, The Ash & Champagne (£75), which comes with a mini bottle of fizz.

Prices from £24, nationwide delivery available
