Valentines Flowers / January 12, 2019 / Rachel Gates
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.
In fact flowers are by far the most popular romantic gift along with chocolate for this special day celebrated by those in love. But you dont want to wait until the last minute to purchase them. Prices go sky high the day before Valentines Day so get your order in early. What kind of flowers should you give? Choosing the right flower can be a little frustrating but dont despair! Here are some helpful suggestions. Some people believe that roses are the only flower that will do as Valentines flowers. Roses are the ultimate romantic flower. No flower says "I love you!" the way a rose does. For that reason they are the most popular flower for that special day. Red roses are the most traditional Valentines flower but pink white and yellow are also given. Maybe youre thinking of the right flower to give to someone who is glamorous.
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.
