It’s perfectly understandable (dare I say warranted) to be cynical on Valentine’s Day. However, we all know someone who would love to be gifted some nice, fresh flowers.
Forget about being in a relationship – what about your neighbor? Or perhaps a coworker who’s overworked or just completed a major project?
What about postal carriers or delivery people? They’re always bringing us things, so why don’t we bring them something for once?
How about this: you order flowers from your favorite florist, and when they arrive, you say, “Surprise! They’re actually for you!”
Actually, don’t do that. I’m not sure making a needless trip in a New England winter is really worth it just for some flowers. Especially when you…work in a shop full of flowers.
Still, there are a few things to consider when buying flowers so you don’t have to resort to something quite this drastic...
PICK THEIR FAVORITE COLOR, NOT YOURS
The flowers aren’t for you. It doesn’t matter if you think they’re pretty. If the giftee likes those weird, various-shades-of-green flowers that look like peppermint sherbet? Fine. It’s for them.
DON’T LOOK AT THE PRICE
If you’re buying flowers, you’re either doing it out of the goodness of your heart, or because you really, really messed up. Money is no longer an object.
REMOVE THE PRICE TAG
I know what you’re thinking: “How am I supposed to remove the price tag without looking at the price?” I got a question for you: why’d you have to mess up to begin with? Make it happen, chief.
SHOP IN ANOTHER TOWN
The last thing you need is for Gabby Gossip to see you buying a gorgeous bouquet and start rumors. And if you live in New Hampshire, you have plenty of options.
