Freshly cut flowers are a great gift but in some instances, we can do a bit better. Anyone who has ever given or received flowers in the past can relate to this one. Even if you get them into a vase right away, it won’t be long before they are starting to lose their luster.

That’s where giving live plants come in. Live plants can last for months, or even years, making them an excellent choice for your Valentine’s Day gift.
