Who doesn’t love being surprised with flowers? Whether you’re buying for someone special, your best friend or just for yourself, a little floral pick-me-up is always more than welcome. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the 852 is in full bloom.
From the huge and extravagant, to the minimal and modest, we’ve done the hard-work for you and chosen a couple of our favourite places to get the best and most beautiful bouquets for your nearest and dearest – just in time for the big day!
BYDEAU‘s beautiful and fresh flowers are a favourite amongst all the girls at Sassy HQ. With each arrangement carefully curated and and prepared by hand, you know you’ll always get a top quality and gorgeous product.
If your sweetheart has a sweet tooth, they’re sure to love “The Sugar Sugar“, a special Valentine’s rose bouquet, perfectly paired with a personalised cookie. If that’s not love, we don’t what it is!
BYDEAU, 53 Wellington Street, 4/F, Central, Hong Kong (by appointment only), or online at www.bydeau.com
Selling incredibly lifelike and realistic artificial flowers, Amaranthine Blooms are a gift to give now and keep for the long haul. Passionate about providing the best quality imitation flowers available, they use only the highest quality materials, with each selected to be the closest imitation of its fresh counterpart.
They do offer ready made arrangements, but we love the idea of choosing a selection of stunning single stems, to create a really individual bouquet for a loved one (or to keep just for you…)

Molala cater for all occasions and have a whole host of gifts to aid any woe (from a bad day to a break up!), so, of course, they also offer up some great Galentine’s or Anti-Valentine’s Day pressies.
For something a little different, try your hand at building a “Cheer-Up Basket” for your BFF and include everything from giant wine glasses, to relaxing candles; or go classic and send your S.O. pretty pink roses and a confetti filled balloon!
