Lavender is a less common color than pink or red, making it the perfect color to express your special love. Considered “exquisite” and “rare,” it implies that you think the world of the person who’s getting these beauties. Translation: You’ll hit the right notes with lavender. “Expressing enchantment, majesty, and splendor, lavender roses (as well as other hues of purple) will delight the queen in your life,” adds Palomares.

When it comes to pink roses, all the shades all have something in common. They symbolize gratitude, grace, and joy, and they’re a much gentler option than red. For example, while red signifies passionate love, think of pink as more of a token of admiration. In terms of which pink to choose, Palomares explains that when you want to tell your best friend how thankful you are for the bond you share, deep pink roses are a fantastic choice, “as they indicate happiness and gratitude.” In addition to sending the right color flowers, make sure you don’t choose a Valentine’s Day gift that sends the wrong message.
