It's February already and what does that mean? Around here it means trying to not lose yet another mitten, trying to keep the snow drifts from becoming too much taller than I am, and trying to not drive each other crazy when we're cooped up in the house all day.
That, and the fact that it's crunch time when it comes to choosing a Valentine's Day gift. I'm guessing that in cities and towns across the country there are people looking at their calendars wondering how the heck this holiday jumped up so quickly and, more importantly, what gift can they find quickly for the ones they cherish most in their life.
Fortunately, there is always flowers. A classic, beautiful gift that is always appreciated and enjoyed, flowers have a way of saying that you care while bringing a smile to your recipient's face from the moment they arrive. This year, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM wants to take things one step further and make it even easier to send the perfect bouquet by letting you tell your sweetie just which one you like best.
Sounds simple? It is!
As well as the gorgeous arrangements throughout their site, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM has created a special Valentine's Day Community Page listing 12 of their beautiful options - everything from fresh flowers to decadent treats. Simply click the Like button on your favorites and your beloved will know exactly what to order for you!
Out of the great choices that are displayed, there are three that are especially extraordinary (as one of you will get to see in person very soon). Take a look at these beauties...
First, the Ruby Red Roses.
Elegant, exquisite, and it even comes with a red bow and rhinestone detailing. Red roses scream Valentine's Day to me, there's just something awfully pretty about them, isn't there?
Next up, the Fun & Flirty.
Delicate and sweet, this bouquet has more of a variety in both the selection of blooms and the colors included. This would be a great choice for family members, friends or even a new love.
Finally, the Rose & Lily Cube Bouquet.
Contemporary and modern, I love the way the roses and lilies complement each other and the use of the square vase instead of a traditional one.
But wait, there's more. This year 1-800-FLOWERS.COM is continuing their partnership with DailyFeats throughout the Valentine’s Day holiday and beyond. DailyFeats is a new online social platform for people to share the positive actions, or the feats, that they do.
With valued partners like 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, DailyFeats’ goal is to help people improve their lives via simple but meaningful feats that benefit the body, mind, home, and community. DailyFeats awards points for the feats people do and share, which can then be redeemed for rewards, savings and gifts from leading local and national brands. Doing good and spreading cheer is easy, fun and rewarding!
Speaking of spreading cheer, thanks to the generosity of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, one person will have a post-Valentine's Day surprise for themselves or someone that they love, because...
One lucky person will win their choice of the Ruby Red Roses, Fun & Flirty or Rose & Lily Cube Bouquet from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM!
