List Rules Favorite flowers to give a wife, girlfriend, or girl you like

The best flowers to give to a girl are the flowers that tell your girl exactly how you feel be it love, friendship or that you're sorry. These flower varieties are some of the most romantic flowers you can give as well as the most popular flowers. If you're trying to impress a girl, sending flowers for an occasion or just letting her know that you care, seek these flowers first before all the rest.

Back in the Victorian days, flowers were meant as a way to communicate romantic language with each flower having its own meaning. You can never go wrong with roses, the sign for love, even in platonic situations like with yellow roses, which mean friendship. Tulips also signify love as well as protection while lilies and lilacs represent beauty. 

In terms of popularity, carnations are incredibly popular (and easier on the wallet) compared to other varieties of flowers. Sunflowers, though not a traditional choice, can brighten your girl's day as they express adoration and loyalty. On the more rare side of the spectrum, orchids stand for love, beauty and seduction but come with a sense of seriousness reserved for more developed relationships.

Whichever flower you decide to buy for your girl is sure to please her as after all, it's the thought that's important, right? Add one of these love quotes on the card and you'll go from Frankenstein to Frankenfine!
