Pink Roses

Pink roses generally symbolise youth, lovingness and beauty - these three qualities make them the perfect gift at the beginning of a relationship. While red roses might seem overdone at the beginning, pink roses are uncomplicated and innocent, yet very emotional.

Red Roses

Red roses represent love and passion. Most of us traditionally give them as gifts for Valentine's Day or anniversaries. Are you sure of your love and do you believe in a future together? Choose red roses to express exactly that.

Yellow Roses

Caution is required when giving yellow roses as a gift. Yellow roses in a relationship mean that there are problems. If you give yellow roses to friends, they have a different meaning. Here they stand for fun, friendship and gratitude - a great gift for good friends.
