Qixi Festival, also known as Chinese Valentine's Day, falls on Aug 23. Besides showering your beloved with flowers, here are some other gift ideas:

Buy a small preserved flower and store it in a crystal ring box. One of the best ways to shop for the flower is through Taobao, a Chinese online marketplace. Search under "preserved flowers" and you will find a variety at an affordable price of about 25 yuan ($4) each.

But, if you think a bouquet is necessary, you are in luck this year.

For the very first time, world-renowned florist Sandra Austoni has brought her collection to China. Based on her understanding of Chinese Valentine's Day, which is all about love, passion and elegance, she has created a bouquet combining yellow roses and cockscomb.

You may place your order at the Blooming Hour Flower Store in Shanghai.
