When you think of Valentine's Day, three things usually come to mind: love, chocolate and, of course, roses. While roses are a classic gift, the flowers only last so long, and some might argue that a bouquet of red is just a bit cheesy and overdone.
If you do want to give your special someone something rose-related, or even treat yourself, there are tons of rose products on the market. From rose-scented creams and candles to items that have rose oil or petals in them, the options span skin care to food and drink.
To make your Valentine's Day shopping a breeze, lifestyle expert Kathy Buccio stopped by the 3rd hour of TODAY to share her favorite rose-themed products. Keep reading to shop bath soaks, chocolate, tea and more.
