Valentines Day Gift Ideas

For some, Valentines Day is stressful; Which flowers should I  buy? Is it too soon for roses? They cost how much ?!!

We at, The White Dahlia would really like to make this holiday less scary and stressful so we can all focus on the true meaning of Valentines Day. Love. Love. and MORE Love! Now, if you don’t have a significant other that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in a little L-O-V-E either; give gifts to family, friends or even take a chance and show that other single cutie what you’ve got to offer (you never know!). Our website has some great options BIG and SMALL!

Red Roses | the white dahliaRed Roses are a classic; but don’t feel you HAVE to get these for your lady – especially if your relationship is new and you’re not sure about sending the wrong message. Get the roses for your wife and that girl you just can’t live without. Know her favorite flower? BONUS if you add it to the rose bouquet!

True Love Tulip & Rose | the white dahia
Simply Calla | the white dahlia You can also get a mixed arrangement like the first image above that has roses in it, but isn’t overpowered with them. Get her flowers that will last a while, like tulips or ranunculus and also be sure to add some fragrance. Or scale it down even more by getting just a small simple bunch of flowers or arrangement, like the one right above, for a new relationship or as an add-on to your additional gifts!

Silver Tin | the white dahlia

Candles make a great gift also! Try our Fragrance of The Month: Black Gardenia, for an intoxicating floral fragrance that anyone is sure to love.

Stoneware Frame | the white dahlia Do you have a favorite picture of you and your sweetheart? Pop it in one of our Stoneware Frames and you’ve got yourself an adorable, thoughtful and easy Valentines Day gift! (and for under $30)

We hope this guide helps make your Valentines Day a little less stressful, now go out there and show your honey some LOVE ❤

Valentines Day Flower Guide | the white dahlia

Every girl wishes for flowers on Valentines day and wouldn’t it be nice if you felt confident you were getting her just the right ones?!

Valentines Day Flower Guide | the white dahlia

This guide is a few flowers that every girl will LOVE. They are the most asked for, talked about, requested and sold in the flower market! (Or so we’ve seen)!

Tuberose | the white dahlia Ranunculas | the white dahlia1. Hyacinth: These beautiful blooms are available in shades of pink, purple and white. Hyacinth give off a lovely fragrance and are pretty much a staple for spring! Usually sold by the stem and can range from $2.5-5 per stem.
2. Tuberose: These flowers are full of enough fragrance to scent an entire room! Their linear stalks bloom small white blossoms. Typically sold by the stem ranging from $1-3.
3. Anemones: Anemones come in a range of colors and are beautifully vibrant with a popping black center. Typically sold as a bunch of 10 ranging from $12-15.
4. Peonies (not pictured): These beautiful blooms are available in shades of pink to burgundy, red and white. Usually sold by the stem and can be pretty pricey ranging from $5-10 per stem.
5. Ranunculus: We personally love ranunculus! They are available in an array of colors. These flowers start small but blossom into big beautiful, almost paper like, flowers. Typically sold in a bunch ranging from $12-15.
6. Roses: Yes, the standard. A classic. Roses are available in an array of colors and are most commonly sold by the dozen which can range from $15-30 (during the holiday don’t be surprised if you’re dishing out closer to $40-60 per dozen). Try a garden rose which will have a beautiful fragrance; garden roses are typically sold by the stem ranging from $5-10 per stem.
7. Dahlia: Of course we’re a fan, but our customers love big beautiful dahlias too. They are available in an array of colors depending on the season and usually range from $3-10 per stem.
8. Tulips: Tulips are another spring standard. They are available in almost any color and also range in breed (i.e. parrot tulips, dutch tulips, french tulips). Typically tulips are sold as a bunch ranging from $12-15.

Fragrance of The Month: November

One of our favorite things about our Fairfax & King Collection by Found Goods Market is the down home rustic feel it gives you, exactly the same cozy feeling you get with the fall holiday. These candles are an all natural soy blend wax  that is highly fragranced with florals, fruits, greens and spices. We chose our Monticello Pomegrante fragrance because its airy and sweet with the essence of pomegranate, lemongrass, rose and tart grapefruit! (YUM!) Totally perfect for Thanksgiving (Hello, hostess gift?! – We think so).  

Overview Of NOV FOM

Our Monticello Pomegranate fragrance is available in our Recycled Glass Reed Diffuser, Boxed Tumbler, Soap Bar (with Shea Butter) + 3-Wick Bowl.

Our Fairfax & King Collection draws its inspiration from the nation’s oldest apothecary. These recycled glass vessels are finished off with a wax seal and tastefully packaged in natural materials A.K.A they’re eco-friendly! The candles and diffuser are PERFECT for any room in the house i.e bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and we love using the soap in the kitchen and bathroom for hands or use it in the shower for your whole body!
