Buying someone Valentine’s Day flowers is often something that seems expected rather than a genuinely romantic gesture. However, if you don’t get flowers delivered on Valentine’s Day you risk looking like you don’t care. So how do you buy Valentine’s Day flowers and make it an honest, romantic gesture?
First of all, pick the right bouquet. Roses are usually expected – and red ones at that – but you can also send a bunch of her favourite blooms to her if that will be more warmly received. If she doesn’t have a favourite flower, instead look for roses that are her favourite colour and maybe have a few red roses waiting for her later on too.
Next, make sure you know where and when to send them. Buying them yourself and giving them to her at home will be expected, whereas having some beautiful flowers delivered to her work just as she is starting to think you have forgotten about Valentine’s Day altogether will make the gesture seem far more romantic. However, be sure you are doing the right thing in doing so – whilst that may be most women’s view of romance, others like more subtle gestures, so make sure you tweak your plan according to personal taste.
Valentine’s Day can be a very commercial time, but if you put the right thought into the presents you get and the bouquet that you send, whether it is a dozen roses or some other great floral arrangement, it can also be a day where you manage to truly surprise your loved one and offer them a gift that they will really appreciate. Finally make sure the sentiment on the gift card is the right one. Say what you mean and how you feel and don’t just use clichéd sentiments. If you get the balance right, what could be a commercial day could turn into a perfect one.
