It's hard to believe that we are half way through January so that puts us less than 3 weeks to Valentine's Day. Now don't start cringing and getting all stressed out. Let's face it, we have a nice selection of lovely floral gifts on our website right now and if you order prior to February 1st, you pay our regular price on roses instead of the holiday pricing. Here's a tip for you, order early and save money. One less thing for you to do later.
Here are some Valentine's Day Gift Ordering Tips for You!
Valentine's Day is on a Thursday this year which leads us to believe it's going to be a busy one for us florists. I'm not sure if I want to cry or laugh about that! The truth is that there are more people that want to send flowers than florists that can deliver them. Oh and heaven forbid you order from those companies that ship flowers in a box. Do you really want your sweetie to get their Valentine's Day roses from the FedEX man? I don't think so.
Call a florist in the area where you want the flower delivered. Order them as early as you can and realize that if you call on "The Day" they may be sold out or not have any more space on their delivery trucks. Valentine's Day is not time to do the "Same Day Delivery" option if you can help it. Here are a few more tips for you.
- Who says you have to send Red Roses? No one and certainly not us florists. We have roses in lots of colors and they are all beautiful. If she doesn't like red roses, send her yellow, pink or peach. Whatever color she likes, she'll love getting on Valentine's Day.
- Don't have the budget for those pricey roses? Why not send tulips, gerbera daisies or a lovely mixture of spring flowers. About 1/2 of the arrangements that leave our shop for Valentine's Day are not red roses.
- Want a gift delivered that's a bit different? Why not send a big bouquet of balloons, a box of chocolates, a pretty blooming plant or a big teddy bear. Most florists have options other than floral arrangements to offer.
- Send your Valentine's Day Gift early. Why? Why not? Wouldn't it be nice if she is the first to get something? Wouldn't it be nice for it to arrive at her office a day ahead instead of 3 pm on the "Day"? Certain shops charge a premium if delivered on the "Day", you may even be able to save a few dollars. Early is always better than later and truthfully, they are probably the same flowers so why not let her enjoy them longer!
There you have it, some tips on how to order your Valentine's Day Flowers.
