How florists help: Often, to account for these last minute Valentine's Day deliveries, florists will add temporary delivery drivers. Even then, you're still playing it risky!
How you can help: Not to sound like a broken record, but order earlyâ€¦ Another thing you can do is have your flowers delivered to your sweetie on FRIDAY. (Valentine's Day falls on a Monday this year.) It's a great way to kick off a Valentine's Day romantic weekend.
How florists help: Florists fill their coolers to the brim with pre-made Valentine's Day orders, but trust me, they go fast! These are also the ones that go out on last-minute deliveries (if there are even any available). Many florists will open their flower shops early and stay late on Valentine's Day, but doesn't your sweetie deserve more thought than the last bouquet in the cooler?
How you can help: Order early! Pick up flowers for your honey on Friday instead of Monday!
