I’m not a high maintenance person. I don’t expect a lot from my husband Joe for holidays, including Valentine’s Day. But I do want to receive something. At least a small token that shows he didn’t forget about me completely. This year I received a sweet card from him and we went out for dinner, courtesy of my parents because we had a babysitter, my in-laws. We had a great time and dining out just the two of us doesn’t happen often. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wouldn’t have melted if I received flowers from Teleflora like these!
While you might be thinking it is too late to give (or receive) Valentine’s Day Flowers, it really isn’t! Not only are some fantastic options for showing your love still available but you can make up forgetting someone special this year by simply sending them now.
When I worked outside the home it was pretty common for women in the office to go down to the front desk to pick up flowers on Valentine’s Day. I have to admit I felt darn good going down to get a bouquet that had been sent to me with love as well. Displaying them on my desk simply made me feel good. But do you know what was even better? Receiving flowers at a time when not everyone else was receiving them too. Then I could say when asked if I got the flowers for a special occasion, “No, just because.” Nothing really beats that or getting a knock at the door and finding some gorgeous flowers waiting for you that are completely unexpected!
So if you missed the opportunity to send a Valentine’s bouquet actually on Valentine’s Day, take this opportunity to send a bouquet that shows you think of them and not only on a holiday!
