With less than a month before we celebrate St Valentine and his arrows of love, millions of men everywhere will be trying once again to think outside the box when it comes to a gift. I think, therefore, that it may be time for a reminder for husbands and lovers, that when it comes to the perfect Valentine’s gift, the classic is still the best.
I am, of course, talking about the gift of fresh flowers, and whether we are looking at a single, romantic stem, or a glorious, colourful bouquet, Valentine’s flowers offer something for every taste and every budget. To put it succinctly, simple, natural, fragrant and beautiful flowers will always delight and never disappoint.
These days online florists are becoming more and more popular, as our days get busier and we have less time to go out and choose blooms, we look for professionals who can not only put together a stunning selection of flowers, but can offer deliver them in timely fashion for your Valentine. A great company who pride themselves on just such a service is FreshFlowers.com.au, an Australian based company who, as a member of Interflora, also offer international delivery.
Freshflowers.com.au have a lovely ethos in which they believe that flowers deliver happiness. They say:-
“Research reveals that people feel more compassionate towards others, have less worry and feel greater happiness when fresh cut flowers are present. Yes, it is fact that fresh flowers feeds compassion, boosts energy, and improves happiness and enthusiasm.”
Valentines Day flowers from Fresh Flowers have a specially curated selection of red roses, the ultimate in romantic flowers. There are single stems teamed with Lindt chocolates, beautifully arranged posies, and elegantly boxed roses and Moet Champagne for the ultimate Valentine’s decadence. If roses are not your thing, there is a section on the website dedicated to love and romance which includes one of my personal favourite flowers, the Lily, in gorgeous Vogue pink.
