Red roses are the quintessential Valentine's Day gift, and the international symbol of love the world over. Everybody loves the real thing, but there can be downsides to your bounteous blooms that will kill off your 'Romeo' act stone dead. So why take the risk? Let Just Artificial Limited show you how it's done.

Durable displays

Real roses can be as delicate as they are beautiful to look at, and while you may be able to create a fantastic display for your beloved, it's got a sell-by date that's more 'Brief Encounter' than 'Enduring Love'. When it comes to gifting, hand-made is always best, so go all out this year and create a Valentine's display using artificial roses instead. You'll get all the benefits of the real thing without any of the downsides, and anything from a spray across a table to a 10ft high collage of your love's face in rose petals will stand the test of time and the elements.

Delightful decor

Seasonal decorations can be a boost to any business to get people in the spirit, and even if your business doesn't sell Valentine's products, it can really improve the moods of your customers to see it looking nice. Unfortunately, droopy and sad aren't a good look for anyone on Valentines, and there's a good chance your display won't be looking very perky by the end of the week. If you're looking for a long-term relationship with your valentine's decorations, by choosing silk flowers or roses from a fake bouquet to a string of lights or ribbon, you can create the Valentine's mood you'd like in your business without breaking the bank.

Treasured memories

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but it also makes you forgetful, and many Valentines memories can end up passing without a souvenir to mark them. If you want to ensure your big day goes into the history books, not the dustbin, get your partner something that will last by investing in a tasteful silk or fabric Valentines day gift that won't rot, rather than a wilting rose. You'll be able to deliver a day they'll never forget, and as insurance, you'll have your gift as a reminder just in case they do!
