The Ultimate Red Rose Day Gift Guide (And The Only You’ll Ever Need)

Red Rose Day? Red Rose Day.

Welcome to Red Rose Day, the unofficial holiday for everyone who thinks love should be spelled with petals and not letters. Here at BloomThis, we’re all about celebrating these iconic blooms that have been wooing unsuspecting romantics and gracing apologetic gestures for centuries.

History of Red Rose Flowers

When it comes to red rose flowers, their drama and allure go way back — like, ancient Rome back. These weren't just pretty decorations ; they were serious status symbols. Imagine lavish Roman banquets where ceilings dripped with rose petals, a luxurious display of wealth and excess.


Romans didn’t just throw parties; they threw epic floral extravaganzas, with red roses as the star attractions, ensuring everyone knew just how opulent you could be. It was like saying, "Look at me, I can literally bathe my villa in luxury," but with petals.

Fast forward to a chillier climate and a grittier plotline in medieval England, and the red rose takes on a new, more combative role during the War of the Roses. This wasn’t just any old family squabble; it was a full-blown civil war with petals.


From 1455 to 1487, the red rose was the emblem of the House of Lancaster, pitted against the white rose of the House of York. Imagine knights, nobles, and kings all vying for power, with the humble red rose thrust into the spotlight as a symbol of loyalty and blood ties. Every time a Lancasterian knight donned a red rose, it wasn’t just about floral preference; it was a declaration of political and military allegiance—a floral brand that said, "Team Lancaster, ready to rumble!"

Through the Victorian era, red roses continued to reign supreme as the floral choice for expressing love. They were the go-to for whispered sweet nothings and grand romantic gestures alike. And today? They’re still at it, making cameos in everything from first dates to 50th anniversaries and reminding us that some things—like a good love story—never go out of style.

This look at the red rose’s history shows it's much more than just a pretty face: it's a bloom of battlefields and ballrooms, embodying passion and power throughout the ages.

Big Deal With Red Roses?


Why do we keep coming back to red rose flowers? Because they are the Michael Jordan of the flower world: universally recognized, always in style, and exceptional at making a point—specifically, the point of love. Red roses don’t just say "I love you"; they say it with a historical flair that’s survived fashion trends, wars, and yes, even reality TV.

Red Rose Flowers as Gifts

Gift-giving can be a minefield, but giving red rose bouquets? That’s like playing the game on cheat mode. Whether it’s a single bloom or a full armload, red roses are your best bet at saying anything from "You’re the one" to "Sorry I forgot to take the trash out... again."
