Some people enjoy flowers for Valentine's Day (I mean, who wouldn't?) but I prefer a gift that sticks around after the roses die, don't you? If you're gonna give your main squeeze some blooms come Friday, at the very least consider putting them in a beautiful vessel that he or she will use again and again.
If it were up to me, though, I'd be going with a sweet little plant tucked into a perfect little pot...
If you want to get really fun, scour the thrift and vintage stores for something kitchy and cute like this winking dude. (I've been looking on etsy and there are tons!). But there are plenty of modern planters out there too - and I've rounded my favorites up just for you!
It's important to remember that a planter doesn't have to actually be a planter. It can be any water safe vessel. I often come home with brass bowls or ceramic pots from my thrifting adventures, and I love how my plants look in them! Get creative when you're looking for that perfect fit!
