Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Eve Callahan.
Easy options for women like jewelry and valentines Flowers or Valentine chocolate gifts are more obvious but women struggle with choice in valentine gifts too. Three categories tech power tools or sports are the womans easy way out. But Valentines gifts should never really be about the obvious choice but about personal preference indulgence and appreciation. I own and run four successful gift stores and on Valentines Day its a mad house. Women are utterly perplexed when it comes to buying valentines gifts and often make poor choice in romantic gifts for their partner. Admittedly most stores in a ten mile radius stock valentine chocolate gifts in general and dont offer the ladies much other than chocolate gifts. With little to choose from women are probably going to end up buying valentine hearts and valentines flowers unless theyre given some kind of broad guideline to go on. My article is such an attempt based on my experience with helping women.
If youre one of the lucky people who received a bunch of beautiful flowers from your loved one you may want to know how your gift can keep on giving. At Petals weve had a number of florists over the years help customers and our own staff with keeping their flowers alive and fresh. There are number of things our florists have taught us that you can do to ensure your Valentines efforts last longer. First of all no matter how they were delivered either by hand by the florists or by a courier make sure you put your flowers into a clean vase with the wrapping still on and let them drink up the clean water. Next make sure you use cut flower food. The flowers will last longer if you use cut flower food but make sure you the read directions and use the correct amount.
Before choosing what you will send you should consider these aspects carefully. The next step to send Valentines flowers or to purchase Valentines flowers is to plan the timing of the flowers delivery. If you plant to take your Valentines Day Date out to dinner then you might want to consider having a flower bouquet delivered to her door before the date or you could choose to have the restaurant present the flowers to her over dinner. Next do your research! Certain types of flowers have different symbolic meanings. For example it is a commonly known fact that roses are symbols of passion and love. However did you know that the use of ivy in a bouquet symbolizes fidelity and marriage? It will impress your date or partner if you are able to tell her the symbolic meaning behind your presentation.
Finally regardless of whether you choose to send Valentines flowers or to purchase Valentines flowers yourself you should enclose a small note or other token with the bouquet that will further convey your sentiments to your partner. When you are choosing Valentines flowers for your beloved you should consider her personality and demeanor when you are choosing the bouquet. A person who is demure will appreciate a simple arrangement versus an extravagant over the top display of flowers. Under no circumstances should you ever use plastic or dead flowers in an arrangement. You should ensure the vendor you select provides only fresh flowers for your bouquet. For most of us guys flowers are a mystery. We know the reaction they get and that flowers are a great way to show how much we care.
Whats the best way for a man to make a lasting impression on a woman? Research shows that the answer to making a memorable impact is right under his nose -- with flowers. Ninety-two percent of women can remember the last time they received flowers and 89% agree that receiving flowers makes them feel special. "If the way to a mans heart is through his stomach then the pathway to a womans heart is through her other senses" says Rebecca Cole of Discovery Channels Surprise By Design. "Flowers are a sensual gift that can express any emotion so simply - with just a little knowledge and a phone call to your florist." And flowers given for no special reason may be the most special of all. So light a fire with flowers this Valentines. And keep it burning with a surprise gift of flowers anytime throughout the year.
