Valentines Day in Korea

It’s very common to see couples wearing matching shirts, jackets or shoes when they go out together

Like most places around the world Valentine’s Day is also a special day in Korea. It’s a day where we show the ones we love, how much we love them. We bring them flowers and other wonderful gifts and we write them sweet letters that they can keep to remember the day.

It is a very busy time for flower shops and date venues because everyone in the country is excited at the chance of giving and receiving gifts and love from one another. If you are in Korea on Valentines Day, you will see couples everywhere, wearing couple jackets, shoes and shirts, a phenomenon that seems a bit awkward but cute for many foreigners, but is embraced by romantic Koreans. Restaurants will be busy during this day, especially in certain popular areas like Gangnam, Hongdae, Apgujung, etc. so if you are planning on inviting your special one out for dinner, you better reserve a table as soon as possible.

If you have a special one in Korea who is alone on Valentine’s Day or you just want to remind someone that they mean something special to you, this is the perfect time to send something special their way.

Order in advance

Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest days for flower shops and suppliers, and everybody is working really hard to make and deliver flowers all around the country. It takes a lot of planning to make it happen as smoothly as possible, but most of all, it just takes a lot of hard work. We at Flower Gift Korea are determined to provide exactly the same quality as we always do but we will probably be less responsive on our messengers and last minute changes will be difficult for us. So it’s very important to place your order in advance with all the details necessary, such as correct address, card message and phone number!

The most difficult part of Valentines Day is arranging the deliveries, so it’s a great help for us if we can have your orders at least 2 days before Valentines Day. Most of our delivery partners actually don’t have the resources to deliver all our orders, so we have to arrange the deliveries between several different delivery companies.

What should I give?

People often ask us, what we think would make a nice gift on Valentine’s Day. It’s of course not easy to answer as people likes different flowers, colors and some may prefer chocolate over flowers, but here are a couple of typical gifts that we have sent on Valentine’s Day


Roses will always be one of the best ways to show love and romance. We have several types of rose bouquets that range from classic beautiful red arrangements to vibrant and colorful bouquets. They come in elegant rose-only bouquets or mixed with other types of flowers such as Lilies or Alstromerias.

The number of roses in one bouquet is your choice and in theory there is no limit of how many roses you can choose, but physically it becomes heavier and more difficult to handle the bigger it becomes, obviously. 100-150 roses would be an approximate maximum with standard sized roses but we can add more with smaller roses or spray roses.

Roses come in so many beautiful colors. Classic deep red roses are available all year round and always in a good quality. We would always recommend these roses if you are in doubt. If you are interested in a different color, please mention what color you are interested in when you place your order. We cannot guarantee that we can get the color, especially during Valentine’s, but we will do our best to find the colors of your preference in the quality that we always promise.
