Tongue Tied and Lost for words on Valentines Day?

“If I could have a rose for every time I thought of you, The world would be empty of them.”

After many years in retail floristry, I’ve chalked up MORE THAN my fair share of Valentine’s Days card messages. Can I tell you how many Valentines Day cards I’ve written in my life? Thousands…..LITERALLY thousands of little heartfelt messages I have personally written for one to another….for people I don’t even know! And I get it, really I do….I imagine its awkward and somewhat embarrassing standing opposite a person you don’t even know dictating a sometimes VERY personal message, but asking me to write something romantic instead? Really? 😉 I guess it’s no wonder people have started flocking to the web to order instead! There’s a certain anonymity by ordering online, and it certainly makes the transaction emotionally easier.

So this week we thought we’d give you a helping hand, a little inspiration for all you romantics who are tongue tied, or a tad lost for words…. (we’ve highlighted some of our favourites 😉 )

Remember we have a fantastic range of gift ideas for you this year. If you haven’t already had a look, check it out here.

Valentine’s Day is often thought of as nothing more than consumerism gone wild but that just misses the whole essence of the day. Whether it be a nervous teenager mustering up the courage to confess their undying love, an attentive spouse keeping the romance alive, or a extravagant way to propose, Valentine’s Day perhaps gives some the excuse to do what they ordinarily wouldn’t have the courage to do. Valentine’s Day is a way to simply celebrate love. That. Is. All. And really, what can be wrong with that?

So on that note, go boldly and ‘Love like you’ve never been hurt”….

Til next time, don’t go breaking any hearts,
