1). You can’t go wrong with roses. Red long-stem roses are still the #1 hit for Valentine’s Day because women love them and probably always will.
2). Make it personal. Tell your florist a hobby or passion that she loves and allow the florist to create something that incorporates that. This will show her that a) you listen and b) you care.
3). Get the most bang for your buck. Have the flowers delivered to her at work where everyone can ooh & aah over how sweet you are. She may insist that it is embarrassing but everyone loves a public display of affection. Women want flowers and want everyone else to know they received them.
4). Don’t forget about the card message. It’s as important to women as the flowers themselves. Be yourself but if there was ever a time to lay it on thick…it’s now. Don’t be afraid to ooze love & romance. It’s what women want. Check out some ideas here…
5). Order early. We all love to procrastinate (myself included) but you really want to plan ahead if at all possible. This will ensure that what you order will be available. This is especially true if you want something other than red roses. The more specific you are, the more time you need to allow the florist to obtain what you are looking for.
Remember…it’s about love. If worse comes to worse stop by the flower store on the big day and pick something out to hand to your sweetie in person. And nothing beats a hand-written note!
