​Beyond Red Roses: A Valentine’s Day Guide for Selecting Something Unexpected

​Beyond Red Roses: A Valentine’s Day Guide for Selecting Something Unexpected

Posted by Bloomerang Solutions on 14th Jan 2021

Valentine’s Day is one of our favorite holidays of the year because it is all about love and happiness! It is a chance to show loved ones – or those we secretly admire – that we think they are special, and we reward them with gifts to show our appreciation.

On the surface, that sounds fantastic. We all spread love around and everyone gets presents, what could possibly go wrong? Well, a lot if you do not know what your Valentine’s expectations are and you underdeliver on an occasion that is practically set up on a tee for you to knock it out of the park.

Couples celebrating their first Valentine's Day together without knowing the other partner’s expectations ahead of time could be headed for hurt feelings, or even disaster if they are not on the same page and the gift misses the mark.

For those who do not know a daisy from a daffodil, we’re here to help you find the perfect gift of flowers for Valentine’s Day that should exceed just about every expectation. Although you should definitely consider some chocolates and perhaps a plush animal just to be on the safe side!

Red Roses

Ruby Rapture Bouquet by Frank Gallo & Son Florist, Schenectady, NY

Red roses are the quintessential gift for Valentine’s Day. If your Valentine is expecting flowers, this is likely what they have in mind. You cannot go wrong with a dozen (or two) long-stem roses, but you CAN be more creative than that!

A dozen roses show you care, but they also suggest that you did not put a great deal of thought into the gift and instead just went with the safe choice. For many, this is more than enough, but if you really want to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember, you need to consider additional options in order to watch your Valentine’s face light up after you exceed their expectations.

Pretty Please Bouquet by Frank Gallo & Son Florist, Schenectady, NY

One of our favorite Valentine’s Day bouquets is Frank Gallo's Wishful Wonderings Bouquet. This jaw-dropping design not only features the signature red roses but enhances them with lovely carnations, stock stems and pink waxflower to make it extra special.

Another terrific option is Frank Gallo's Pretty Please which features a lovely mix of fresh flowers in breezy shades of pink, white, lavender and more at a wonderfully reasonable price. For something completely different, why not surprise your valentine with our Ruby Rapture Bouquet? This wonderful bouquet bucks the trend of traditional Valentine’s Day flowers by putting a new spin on a classic traditional gift.

No matter which gift you give your Valentine, be sure to order as early as possible in order to choose from the best selection. Just like a great bakery or a terrific barbeque restaurant, the early bird gets the worm and the selections become limited the closer we get to the big day. Ordering early will also help you secure your preferred delivery date before they are full.
