Gifting flowers on Valentine’s Day can be unusually tricky if you care to think about it. Not only do you need to pick flowers that get your message through in a beautiful way but also you need to order them from the right place without getting caught up in the last-minute madness that sees the quality dipping and the prices zooming. Some dos and don’ts of gifting flowers that can make your life easier:
Choosing the Florist
The first step is to choose a florist that you can not only depend on for good advice and beautiful flowers but also for their commitment to eco-friendly farming and alignment of values to your own. If you are unsure of how to go about finding the right florist, you can check online for their ratings and read the reviews posted by customers. You also need to make sure that they are capable of making the deliveries to the recipient wherever she is, on time and in perfect condition. If you need to make a flower delivery Italy, it is better to choose an online florist of repute.
Get the Gift Right
When you are buying flowers for your Valentine, you cannot just go ahead and order something blindly and hope she will like them. It is very important to consider the preferences of the recipient as well as the stage of your romantic involvement. If you feel that sending flowers on Valentine’s Day will not be misinterpreted, you can start to think about what you should pick. Even though traditionally, the day calls for roses, you can instead opt for tulips or even orchids that have a very exotic touch even if they are grown locally. Even if you think rose is the way to go there are lots of varieties that are different from the classic California bloom.
Get the Timing Right
If you are in the habit of gifting flowers, you could think about subscribing to a reputed online florist for sending flowers to recipients. Apart from saving time and effort, there is a bonus in significant discounts that are offered to subscribers. With subscription services, you don’t have to run around at the last minute thus saving yourself a lot of stress and anxiety of ordering and then worrying whether it will be delivered on time. Since the florist will also be swamped with orders on special days, you can give instructions for the deliveries to be done a couple of days earlier to ensure the order is executed with care. Try to have the flowers delivered on a Friday so that the recipient has the chance to admire them all through the weekend and more people visiting also get the chance to see them. The other good thing is that Friday deliveries usually cost less than weekend deliveries.
It is very important for you to be sincere with the card you’re sending with the flowers. Express your sentiments with honesty and never say anything that you really don’t mean. Avoid everything that can have different interpretations.
