Flower delivery tips for Valentine’s Day

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, there is no denying the fact that fresh flowers are the number one gift. Of course, when arranging for a fresh flower delivery during this time of year, there are a few important tips that everyone should keep in mind.

Order in time

Firstly, you need to place your order early enough to avoid disappointment. Not only are stocks limited, but couriers are also very busy during this time of year. If you place your flower delivery order late, it may only be delivered after Valentine’s Day. Select a delivery date that will suit you best. This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday. If possible, you should arrange for a Saturday delivery so that you don’t have to wait around at home all day on Sunday for the bouquet to be delivered. This will free up your entire day so you can take your Valentine out instead of staying in.

Direct delivery

If, for whatever reason, you are not able to be with your Valentine on the day, you can always arrange for a direct flower delivery. Again, as mentioned above, you can have the blooms delivered the day before or on the day. Depending, of course, on whether or not the florist offers weekend flower deliveries. If not, you might need to have them sent on the Friday instead.

Safe storage

If you are planning on receiving the flower delivery yourself and storing the bouquet until Sunday morning, you should make sure that you have the perfect spot for your blooms. In other words, you want to make sure that they will not get too hot or too cold. Avoid storing them in your car, garage or near any sources of heat.

Early gifts

If you are worried that you will not be able to keep the flowers fresh until the time comes, you can always present your Valentine with an early gift. Have the bouquet delivered a couple of days early and present them to your loved one. If you order chocolates, champagne or any other extras with the flowers, you can always keep those aside to present to your Valentine on the day. This is a great way of extending the Valentine’s Day celebrations over several days.

With these simple delivery tips in mind, you can be sure that your Valentine will be surprised and feel super special. Don’t forget to include a special message when placing your order for a fresh flower delivery. Consider composing a poem yourself or a least write something unique to let them know how much you love them.
