Those who are looking to send flowers for Valentine's Day but are trying to think outside of the box when it comes to bouquets may instead consider turning to cyclamen, according to McClatchy Newspapers.

The leaves of this beautiful bud boast a glossy shine that can add a soft twinkle to any room. Not only that, the leaves are heart-shaped, which is a holiday-appropriate symbol that can't be beat.

Cyclamens are available in soft reds, whites, pinks and purples. They are sure to bring a little cheer to anyone who is suffering a bit of the winter blues, evoking images of wild pastures and sunny days.

Hydrangea may be another exciting alternative, because of their exotic, brilliant pink petals. Begonias can offer a similar, breath-taking flair, with vibrant colors that are sure to melt any heart.

The classic rose, with a deep crimson flush, may also prove to be a great way to celebrate Valentine's, particularly if one decides to send the traditional dozen red roses to a loved one's doorstep.

No matter what one decides, flowers will surely bring a smile to anyone's face - one study has found that receiving a bouquet can boost the spirits and have an effect that lasts for days, according to Rutgers University magazine.
