Are you shopping for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your honey? I’ve put together an extra special list of several online retailers with awesome selections of gifts your spouse or significant other is sure to love.
Guys, if your woman says she doesn’t want anything for Valentine’s Day, don’t believe it! She may not want flowers or jewelry (like I don’t), but she wants SOME acknowledgment of how much she means to you.
If you’re going to go the flowers route, please contact your local florist directly rather than going through a wire service. If you order online or over the phone through one of the major wire services, that company takes a huge commission off the top, leaving very little left for the florist to use in creating your sweetie’s arrangement.
For example, if you pay $50 for an arrangement through a wire service, only $30 of that (or less) might filter down to the local florist. The florist’s cost of goods (what they pay for the flowers) increases substantially around major holidays such as Valentine’s Day. That means the florist can’t create as nice of an arrangement for your $50 outlay as you might expect.
Your best bet is to either phone or visit a florist directly, or buy flowers at your grocery store. It’s true – your grocery store probably buys flowers from the same place as your florist does. I recently had flowers from a grocery store, and they lasted well over a week, which is a good amount of time for fresh flowers to last.
If you’re looking for something more creative than flowers, here’s a list of some great Valentine’s Day gift options.
