It's about that time, lovebirds, when the air will fill with the sweet smell of roses and your partners will gaze lovingly into your eyes after receiving the perfect bouquet. That is, of course, if you're organized enough to get those flowers ordered in time for the Valentine's Day rush that happens, oh, about Feb. 13 every year.

In Toronto, there's no dearth of options for flower buying — practically every corner has a shop selling at least a few carnations. But if you're really looking to wow the love of your love with something in bloom, we're going to suggest a few flower shops that are known for doing exceptional work, whether it's handling confusing deliveries or just creating something magical with flora.

And of course, we'd be remiss if we didn't note that roses aren't always the way to go. There are plenty of other, potentially more pleasing, options available.

Check out the top 20 flower shops in Toronto. And best of all, they all deliver across the GTA (we've noted fees where possible), so you'll be able to demonstrate your affection at your sweetie's home, office or gym, if that's your thing:
