For Benjamin Alves, giving your partner a bouquet of roses is the best way to express, ‘Hey I appreciate you and I want you to know that this day, you’re important to me.’

The thing about the red roses, you can give them to your loved one any day and that day becomes special and memorable.

Take it from the Kapuso talent Adarna star Benjamin Alves.

As he says, “You can never go wrong with red roses.

"You can never go wrong with giving all the women in your life red roses.”

Flowers may be a bit predictable as a love offering, nevertheless they touch the hearts and put a smile on the face of your loved ones.

“They're not only for someone you want to court," Ben says.

"I’ve always made it to a point to send my mom and my sister flowers even if they’re abroad.”

The 24-year-old actor affirms that giving flowers is one of the best ways to express your feelings to your loved ones.

“If you want to tell them, ‘Hey I appreciate you and I want you to know that this day, you’re important to me,’ for me, say them with red roses.”

Apart from roses, you can also give chocolates and hand-written notes.

“Chocolates are second but if those are a little bit too expensive, a hand-written note would be nice.

“A breakfast for your mom, doing the laundry for your mom, something like that would be nice," Ben suggests.

And he is so right because, as he says, "acts of love are really good strong language.”

Valentine’s Day may be over but, hey, give your beloved some red roses today or any day of the year, and it will be a love day all over again.
