Individuals who can't be with their loved ones on Valentine's Day need to plan ahead to ensure a heartfelt, captivating and romantic gift arrives in time for the February 14 holiday.

While some choose expensive jewelry, electronics or other gifts too wow their sweethearts, experts say that flowers are still the perfect Valentine's Day gift, especially for those in long-distance relationships.

"Tradition just isn't going away," said flower company executive Francisco Bustos. "People have been expressing love with flowers for thousands of years. The only difference is that you can set up your delivery online and reach your loved ones who might be hundreds of miles away."

In addition to making sure your Valentine's Day flowers arrive on time, planning ahead can help ensure you have the most options in terms of which flowers you want delivered.

While reds, pinks and whites remain the most common Valentine's Day blooms, experts say that any flower gift is appropriate for the holiday. Selecting flowers based on their meaning or choosing flowers that have a special meaning to you as a couple are an ideal way to express love, commitment and adoration.
