A bouquet of roses is a romantic gift no matter the season, and Ode à la Rose, a New York–based flower company, nearly guarantees a smooth experience. Started by two Parisians, the year-old outfit focuses on nothing but roses—and it shows. Each arrangement, like this round bouquet of red Freedom roses, is tied by hand and comes in a French tin pail or a signature purple box. Best of all, givers receive an e-mail notification complete with a photo of the arrangement when it reaches its final destination. Sometimes refined simplicity says it all. Round bouquets, from $45; same-day delivery available in Manhattan; 120 W. 28th St.; 646-660-5281; odealarose.com.
