In the language of flowers, you probably already knew that roses mean love and romance – that’s why they’re the symbol of Valentine’s Day. Did you know, though, that different colours of roses have different meanings? While red roses mean love, pink roses mean happiness and white roses mean innocence, yellow roses actually mean jealousy! So unless you have a very specific Valentine’s Day message in mind, they’re probably best steered clear of. We’ve picked out 10 of the best rose-inspired gifts for Valentine’s Day 2022 – and not a yellow blossom in sight. This is what we’ve found:
