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.
If you have a relatively new relationship and want to keep it light – or if your partner simply has a fun-loving nature – flowers such as tulips, daisies, lilies, and hydrangea provide gorgeous color, fragrance, and aesthetic, while sending just the right amount of romance. If you can;t bring yourself to order anything but roses, try a bouquet of multi-colored blooms for a light and whimsical take on the holiday.
