It seems like Christmas was just yesterday, and Valentine’s is just around the corner, time to start thinking of gifts for our loved ones once again. Though Valentine’s Day is a bit easier with a box of chocolates and flowers doing the trick, there are few simple things you can do to spice things up.
The best way to say “I love you” is with a dozen red roses, according to the owner of Always and Forever Flowers, Vincent Campo. He says, “a rose is a rose is a rose,” quoting Gertrude Stein. A dozen roses costs about $70, and you should start placing your order now, or you might end up empty handed. If you really want to make an impression then it is a better idea to have a mixed arrangement made. Maybe roses and your special someone’s favourite flowers. It costs about the same amount but is a bit more thoughtful.
Chocolates are the second favourite for this holiday, but you don’t go to the local supermarket to get your sweetie sweets. It is a better idea to go to a local chocolate shop, maybe one that makes handmade chocolates, and if you aren’t getting flowers, it is possible to get flower shaped chocolates, in a variety of flavors.
