Valentine Flowers Are Too Expensive!

Just like restaurant dinners, flowers (especially roses) are overpriced for the holiday.

Not only that, but because so many more bouquets than normal are being delivered, there is a good chance that yours will be loaded onto the delivery truck at 4:00 am, ride around all day, and finally be delivered, dehydrated and limp, at 10:00 pm. (Yes, this has happened to me.) The thrill is gone.

Try this alternative.

Check your local nursery or home store for pots of flowering plants. You may be surprised at what's beautiful and available, at a price that is significantly less than a dozen red roses. One big advantage is that a potted plant will outlast cut flowers, and may even end up with a permanent spot in the living room or garden. Your sweetheart will be reminded of your thoughtfulness for a long time.

  1. I like to get my wife a small arrangement of flowers each month to let her know I am thinking of her and not just for V-Day.

    Actually I coach husbands to give their wife small gifts on a regular basis which are suited for their wife's heart.
