Send Your Loved One Flowers

Valentine's Day is on February 14th, and flowers go hand in hand with the holiday. Your Valentine will be thrilled to receive a beautiful flower arrangement. Of course, roses are known for their meaning, they are associated with love. They are available in many colors and can create quite an impressive presentation. For a really impressive arrangement, send a 2 or 3-dozen rose arrangement, that will certainly bring a smile to your Valentine's face.

If you want to send flowers, but are seeking something a little different than roses, florists can provide many options to help you choose a bouquet that is right for you and suits your Valentine's style. You may choose to send a mixed arrangement containing a variety of flowers, or you can choose a tall vase of all Calla Lilies or Tulips. Orchids are perfect for the Valentine who is unique. You may also decide to send a flower basket or blooming plant.

Men like flowers, too! Consider an elegant vase of all white flowers for the special man in your life. Men are also drawn to vibrant flowers in reds and blues. Even the manliest of men appreciate the beauty of flowers. You won't want to use all the frills on a bouquet for a man, something simple still makes quite a vibrant statement, especially when he reads the message on the card.

Your local florist can also provide gourmet gift baskets for Valentine's Day delivery. What a treat to receive a beautiful basket full of delicious chocolates, coffees, teas, snacks, etc. Gift baskets can also contain bubble baths, lotions, candles, and can really be made to suit any theme or taste. Ask your local florist for specific contents available for gift baskets.

Don't forget that you can also add "special touches" to your arrangement. Plush stuffed animals and mylar or latex Balloons are popular additions to a floral arrangement or gift basket. You don't have to stick with teddy bears, either; today's florists have a wide variety of stuffed animals to suit your Valentine. Stuffed animals and balloons brighten up any arrangement and get the delivery noticed.

Your local florist can add a personalized message to your gift. Flowers are the ultimate expression of love, and your message can tell your Valentine exactly how you feel about them! Think up something witty or romantic to say and have the florist write it on a card to convey the message you wish to send. It is suggested to order your flowers in advance (a week ahead) of this busy holiday to ensure best selection and timely delivery.

Remember, to get the best value when purchasing flowers, you should always call a real local florist. "Order takers" charge you a fee to process your order, which isn't necessary to get a great bouquet or gift basket. Often a portion of your money is absorbed by these "order takers", decreasing the value of your arrangement. By dealing with a florist directly, you get a better value, one-on-one contact and professional service!
