Valentines Flowers / January 14, 2019 / Imelda Chang
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.
Unfortunately this myth has taken over the internet and there are few articles that can guide women to help buy valentine gifts for men. There are some rules that apply to men and women alike when it comes to valentines gifts. Rule One: Never ever in a million years give anything that suggests your boyfriend/husband needs improvement. Gifts are supposed make a person feel loved and cherished instead of demoralized. Just as a man should never buy cooking books or make-up for a woman women should avoid gifting gym memberships or even clothes. When it comes to apparel men just dont care as much as women do about clothes. Rule Two: Personal preferences will always help you pick a real winner. Everyone loves knowing that there is a special someone out there who actually truly and profoundly understands them.
