When it comes to Valentine's Day, the romantics and the sweethearts get most of the attention. But statistics tell us that 60% of the population also give gifts to their family members - and although fewer in number, gifts for colleagues, friends, and teachers are also common. It is with this fact in mind that Central Square Florist would like to help you to celebrate all the people in your life who you love - on Valentine's Day and every day!
Flowers make people happy - they convey love, affection, appreciation, and friendship. On February 14th, 35% of us will buy roses (in fact, 224 million roses are cultivated for this day alone!) but mixed flowers, plants and gifts are also popular.

Ask anyone the top gift given each Valentine's Day, and they are likely to guess correctly - flowers! With nearly 61% of people reporting that they plan on buying flowers for the special day, it is far and away the favorite choice. After all, what would Valentine's Day be without flowers? Although the gift is prolific, the type of flowers given can vary depending on our own personal style or the length and nature of the relationship. Although most associate the rose with a February 14th bouquet, there are also many other choices.
Stop and Make the Call - If you are planning to have flowers delivered to your sweetheart on Valentine's Day - or even if you plan on picking them up at our Cambridge flower shop - you'll want to order early. Experts say that most people place their orders on February 11, so ordering before then will ensure the exact flowers you desire, and a spot on the delivery schedule.
