When it comes to Valentine’s Day, there are couple of things that a man should know. First, it’s that it’s on February 14th. Do not forget that date. The next is that roses you buy at the corner on the way to work will most likely cost $20-$50 more than if you buy them, say, the day before and hide them in the office. Fortunately, the interweb comes to the rescue. ProFlowers.com offers many different options for roses that will be perfect Valentine’s Day gifts, as well as additional flowers or gifts that your loved one will…well, love.
When it comes to shopping for a gift, I like variety. I’ll admit that at first I thought ProFlowers.com offered only flowers. Once I visited their website, I quickly saw how wrong I was. In addition to flowers, (which includes a wide variety of rose bouquets), they also have delicious chocolates, Mrs. Fields cookies, chocolate-covered berries, and more. For this shopping trip, I decided to treat my loved ones with an early Valentine’s Day gift – a cookie jar filled with Chocolate Covered Oreos. (Say it with me now, “Mmmmmm.”)
The ordering process was easy. I simply selected the cookies, added it to my cart, then selected the delivery date. The shipping & handling charge was $14.97 and I could essentially select any day for delivery. For weekend or holiday delivery, there may be a surcharge. I ordered the cookies on 2/2 and they arrived safely at my door at 2/4.
Without delay I tore….I mean “my friends and I tore” into the box and ate the first cookies. They were just delicious. I mean….Oreos? Good. Chocolate? Good. Chocolate AND Oreos? Bliss. The quality of these cookies can be proven by the numerous foil wrappers and the rapidly dwindling number of Oreos in the cookie jar.
But maybe you aren’t feeling quite so adventurous and you want to give traditional roses. ProFlowers is a great store for roses as well. You can get beautiful, red, long stemmed roses from ProFlowers for just $39.99. If you aren’t quite at “red rose status” with your loved one, then you can also get a lovely bouquet of tulips or a collection of flowers for just $29.99.
So if you’re one of those people who forgets to purchase your roses on Valentine’s Day, or you want to surprise your loved one with flowers at work, or you want to give them something different than just the traditional bouquet of flowers, then I definitely suggest you check out the many floral and gourmet options that ProFlowers offers.
