Red roses are pretty much synonymous with romance, which is why shops and supermarkets are always full to the brim with bouquets and single stems in the run-up to Valentine’s Day. In fact, this year, M&S has even launched a Percy Pig rose bouquet in time for the special day.
And this year, you don’t need to be an A-lister or an influencer on Instagram to get those huge, multi-stem spherical bouquets arranged beautifully in a vase. You know the ones we’re talking about – and they usually cost much more than we’d be willing to spend on flowers.
That’s why Aldi are bringing out a range of affordable fresh flowers just in time for Valentine’s Day, whether you’re picking up a bunch for a loved one or would like to drop some not-so-subtle hints to your significant other…
Aldi’s Valentine’s Day offering:
Single Rose in Sleeve, 79p, Aldi
Single Rose in Cone, £2.49, Aldi
Top Secret Roses Bouquet, £9.99, Aldi
A Dozen Freedom Roses. £19.99, Aldi
100 Sweetheart Roses Bouquet, £24.99, Aldi
Yes, that’s one hundred red roses for £24.99! Considering similar bouquets normally cost upwards of £70 from other supermarkets and florists – with some luxury florists charging well over £100 – we have to say this is a bargain we can’t let slip through our fingers.
Our advice? Get to your local Aldi store early, as experience tells us that when the affordable grocery chain launch limited edition special buys, they don’t tend to stick around for long (remember the sell-out Jo Malone candle dupes?)
If you prefer to go down a more contemporary route with your Valentine’s Day flowers and don’t want an all-rose bouquet, there are a couple of beautiful hybrid options too…
Shades of Love Gift Bag Bouquet, £12.99, Aldi
Rose & Lily Valentines Bouquet, £14.99, Aldi
All bouquets will be available in Aldi stores from 11th February 2021, except the 100 Sweetheart Roses Bouquet which will be available from 12th February 2021.
