The Guy’s Guide to Buying Flowers at Valentine’s Day

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

  1. Don’t forget!   Valentine’s Day is always on February 14th.  This year that falls on Tuesday.  Here’s a little memory trick…it’s 9 days after Super Bowl Sunday.  Put a reminder in your smart phone now!  Even easier…pay attention to the Super Bowl ads and notice the one featuring supermodel Adriana Lima.  I know you can do that!  It will be touting the services of one of the big, national marketers of flowers.  That will remind you to order flowers for your sweetheart.  Extra credit…when Adriana comes on, turn to your wife or sweetheart and say “hey, she looks kind of like you, but not as pretty”.
  2. Don’t order from the big, national marketer of flowers.   They are middlemen, so be strong and ignore the entreaties of Adriana.   You’ll get better, more personal service and lower prices from your local florist.
  3. Don’t send flowers in a box.  Another reason to buy from your local florist is so you can send a professionally designed arrangement in a vase.  The national marketer/middlemen may offer you flowers that will be sent overnight; but they will arrive in a box.  If your valentine loves to arrange her own flowers, and has the time and vase to do it, that’s fine.  But she’ll probably want her flowers to arrive ready enjoy.  And when you add all the extra charges when you send flowers in a box, you may not even save much money.
  4. Order early!  It also may save you some serious money, as many florists will increase prices prior to the holiday.   Other reasons… you may be able to secure a better delivery time, stores and phone lines won’t be as crowded.
  5. Have the flowers delivered early.  This may save you money on the delivery charge, and also get you the kind of recognition you want.  Florists will be swamped on Tuesday the 14th.  Your flowers will be the center of attention if you send it to her home on Saturday or Sunday, setting the mood for a romantic weekend, or to the office on Monday.  Florists deliver flowers in bud stage.  They generally open over 5 days or more, so they’ll be at their peak on the 14th.
  6. Consider colors other than red…  Red and white are certainly not the only romantic colors.  Show some style and creativity.  With roses in particular, there are many gorgeous varieties and colors.  Let your florist pick the nicest, freshest available.
  7. Consider products other than roses…  How about orchids flowers or an orchid plant?  Throw around terms “Phalaenopsis” and “dendrobium” and you’ll get instant respect.  Spring flowers like tulips, freesia and hyacinth are also abundant and beautiful this time of year.

The Connection Between Flowers and Valentine’s Day


You may be wondering when and how flowers became a symbol of Valentine’s Day. Well, there are many myths surrounding this question. One story dates back to the 17th century. Every year a daughter of Henry IV of France would throw a party in honor of St Valentine. Each lady who attended the gathering would receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers from her valentine. From this came the custom of sending our significant others cards with flowers and candy.

Roses have always been associated with romance and love. Even before St. Valentines flowers were considered love tokens. One Roman myth describes Cupid bringing a vase of sweet nectar to the Gods on Mt. Olympus. On his way he spilled the nectar on the ground, and from that spot grew roses!
