Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Order for Valentine’s Day


1. Stress and Worry

Waiting until the last minute to get flowers for Valentine’s Day is a sure-fire way to create unnecessary anxiety. Not much causes stress like dealing with a crowd of anxious people who are scrambling to scrape together a decent Valentine’s Day celebration at the last minute. Order your flowers and make the rest of your plans in advance, so once Valentine’s Day arrives, you’ll be able to simply relax and enjoy the company of your significant other.

2. Settling for Second-Best

Millions of bouquets are sold for Valentine’s Day each year, which means the most popular flowers, colors, and designs sell out fast. If you want to take your pick of floral designs this year, without having to compromise various design elements, then it’s important to beat the crowd and order early.

3. Missing Your Delivery Window

With so many bouquets being delivered, delivery schedules on and leading up to Valentine’s Day fill up quickly. We do our best to accommodate even the latest orders, but to make sure you can get a delivery time slot that will work for you and your recipient, it’s best to order at least one or two weeks in advance.

4. Missing out on Romance

This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday, which creates a great opportunity to fill the whole week with excitement, anticipation, and romance. Deliver your flowers on Monday, so your Valentine can feel special being one of the first to receive them, while also getting to enjoy the bouquet all week long. Plus, fresh flowers are delivered when they’re still in the bud stage, so your bouquet will be in full bloom and at its most stunning by the time Valentine’s Day arrives for real.

5. Sacrificing Special Requests

If you have any special requests for flowers or customizations to bouquets, it’s best to put your orders in as early as possible. There’s a super-high demand on greenhouses and flower farms during this time of year, which means any late requests for unique flowers might not feasible to accommodate. To ensure we can get flowers delivered to us from our supplier in time for your delivery, we ask that you put any orders with special requests in at least two weeks before your preferred delivery date.

How to Get a Bouquet of Gorgeous Flowers for Valentine’s Day

Of course, long-stemmed roses and flowers in shades of pink and red are always great seasonal choices for Valentine’s Day, but choosing a bouquet in your sweetheart’s favorite color or featuring her favorite flowers can also be incredibly romantic. When in doubt, we recommend asking a florist for a recommendation. Whether you order online, over the phone, or right inside our flower shop, our experts and Gainan’s Flowers are here to help you choose the perfect bouquet for celebrating the most romantic day of the year with your favorite Valentine.
