Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it. And while the main focus of the day is romantic love, experts tell us that millions of people look to purchase special gifts for the many other people in their lives who they love as well. As a helpful guide, Nanz & Kraft Florists have compiled some of the interesting facts about how we collectively celebrate this popular holiday, and how you can, in turn, celebrate all the love in your life.
We Love Our Families: Once we have our sweetheart’s gift, over 60% of us will begin searching for the perfect gift for family members. Valentine’s Day flowers are perfect for your mother, grandmother, sisters, cousins, or daughters. These bouquets typically include the iconic rose, but often are comprised of many other spring flowers. What better way to convey how amazing you think they are than with a gorgeous bouquet?
The Rose is the Thing: Over 224 million roses are cultivated specifically for Valentine’s Day. and among these, red roses are the most popular choice. Still, 35% of rose bouquets include other colors, with pink and white being the most often chosen as an alternative to red.
Friends are Just Like Family: 20% of the population will purchase flowers or gifts for their friends, neighbors, and even colleagues. Orchids are perfect for both home or office, and make a sophisticated statement.
Not Quite Last Minute, But Close: While some may wait until the last minute to purchase flowers, experts tell us that the busiest ordering day for Valentine’s is February 11th. We recommend that you beat the rush and order early – and have the gift delivered a few days prior to the 14th as well. Not only will you be able to relax and enjoy the holiday, but your loved one will have their gift to enjoy all day.
We Love to Embellish: While flowers are the top seller on Valentine’s Day, we will also add balloons, candy, plush animal, dinner reservations, and movie tickets.
At Nanz & Kraft Florists, we understand that every Valentine’s Day gift has a very special person behind it. Let us help you to choose the very best expression of your affection this year, as we celebrate all the love in Louisville along with our friends and neighbors.
