Its Valentine’s Day this Saturday, in case the shop windows emblazoned with pink and red haven't already told you. We’ve decided to take the hassle out of searching for the cheapest deal on red roses by listing some of the cheaper deals here, just for you!
Red roses are the traditional flower of choice, as they’ve symbolised love and passion for hundreds of years. The Victorians had a flower ‘language’ which they used to send messages to others. Being sent red roses in the 1800’s meant ‘I love you’ and that meaning has stuck with us today. Giving 12 red roses, or a ‘dozen roses’ as they’re commonly called, holds a meaning in itself. The number 12 is thought to mean that something is complete. There are 12 months of the year and 12 hours on a clock, for instance. This, added to the red roses, simply means ‘I love you completely, all year round’.
Getting red roses for that special person in your life is a thoughtful gift and is likely to make them very happy, but what if you need to count the pennies? The cost of red roses – particularly around Valentine’s Day – can be very high indeed. However, it depends where you’re able to get them from, as there are many competing flower sellers trying to get the most business from each other. You can take advantage of this competition by knowing just where to look.

Serenata are a mail order flower company who can courier a dozen red roses straight to your loved one on Valentine’s Day itself for just £19.99. This is the cheapest deal we can find and with a great star rating of 4.4 out of 5 based on a whopping 115,884 reviews, we think they may be a good bet.
Debenhams 12 Red Roses incl. Delivery - £21.99
High street favourite Debenhams is offering a dozen red roses for just £21.99. These are ‘velvet red ribbon’ roses and are layered, making them look fuller than other rose types.

Looking for Something Different?
Flying Flowers Rose Plant incl. Delivery - £17.99
If you think that around £20 for 12 red roses which will eventually die is a bit of a waste, then you can still be romantic with a red rose plant. Gift wrapped in an attractive pot, this plant will bloom again and again with the proper care. It’s a gift which will last and perfect for a green-fingered loved one.
Buy on the Day & Save ££s
If you’re not seeing your Valentine until the evening on Saturday or even until the day after, then you may be able to pop to your local florist or supermarket in order to take advantage of discounted roses if they have any left. Of course, this is a risky plan so be prepared with a plan B just in case!
