Trying to find the perfect flower bouquet for the special people in your life for Valentine’s Day? Looking for something more interesting than the typical bouquet? Consider a few of these ideas this coming Valentine’s Day!
- Mother, mother-in-Law or significant other’s mom — Don’t forget Mom on Valentine’s Day! Consider making her feel special with a wrist or pinned corsage. Especially if you are taking her out to dinner, she can wear her flowers instead of having to leave them at home. Want to take it a step further? Buy her a locket and fill it with pictures of you, her kids, spouse, or grandkids and nestle it among the flowers in the corsage.
- Children – Consider a bouquet of candy! Valentine’s Day can be more than flowers. Simply take some BBQ skewers and your choice of chocolate candy (we find that Ferrero Roucher works best), stick the pointy part of the skewer through the bottom of each candy. Once you have a little bunch of them, secure them with some pretty ribbon. Wrap the bouquet in some pretty tissue paper and secure it with a piece of tape or a pretty sticker.
- The man in your life — Whether he is your husband, boyfriend, brother or father, Valentine’s Day is a great way to let him know that you appreciate him! If the man in your life is a beer-lover, consider getting a galvanized bucket and arranging an assortment of bottles of microbrew, in a bouquet-like fashion, in the bucket. Top it off with a few beer mugs (you can find great glass beer mugs at the Dollar Store!). If that special someone is coming home to this beer bouquet, consider chilling the beer mugs in the freezer ahead of time.
- The person who is allergic to flowers — If the special someone in your life is allergic to flowers, fear not, there are plenty of ways to still make Valentine’s Day a special day! There are some great bouquet alternatives that are sure to bring a smile to their face! Purchase an assortment of alligator clips, available at your local hardware store, some floral foam and a nice basket or decorative dish. Put the floral foam in the basket or dish, push the bottoms of the alligator clips (so the “mouth” part is sticking up) into the floral foam, and then fill the alligator clips with memorable pictures, love letters or quotes, cigars, your special someone’s favorite candy. The possibilities are endless!
While Valentine’s Day can be stressful if you are unsure what to get the special people in your life, with a little craftiness and imagination, you can provide them with a token of appreciation that is sure to make them happy.
