Everyone loves getting a beautiful bouquet of flowers spilling over with roses, tulips, and sunflowers. But the joy of fresh-cut blossoms lasts only a few days before they wind up in the trash. Instead of gifting flowers that will soon wilt and wither, how about a floral-inspired gift that’ll last for weeks?
Forget fresh-cut stems from the florist. These soaps, candles, and wax melts are romantic alternatives to traditional bouquets—and prove to your sweetheart that your love is truly lasting.
