Your Valentine isn’t much of a flower person? Send them an indoor plant instead

Plants to get your sweetheart's heart fluttering.

WATCH: Chocolate lover’s cake

The day of love is all but a few bats of an eyelid away, meaning so is the day of roses and bouquets. Though, if you’re wanting to send your Valentine something that says ‘I’m in this for the long run’, why not send them a plant?

While a bouquet of flowers lives for but a fleeting moment, a plant can last a lifetime. (If you have a greenish thumb, that is.)

A thoughtful gift that requires tending to, an indoor plant is a timeless addition to your beloved’s home that can be a symbol of your relationship and dedication to one another – precious things that also requires TLC.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite indoor plants you can get delivered to your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. Read on for our top picks…
