If you have absolutely missed the cut-off deadline for same-day flower delivery, there are still a few things that you can do!
- Consider a DIY same-day flower delivery. Buy flowers at either a floral shop or a grocery store and deliver them yourself. Many grocery store floral departments will arrange a few bouquets together for you to make one big, beautiful bouquet. If you still want the surprise factor, leave the bouquet somewhere your love will find them, like on their car, with a love note.

If you have found yourself past the same-day flower delivery cut-off period and frantically searching for a last minute gift, take a look at a few of the most common Valentine’s Day mistakes, courtesy of KILT radio (link):
- Forgetting to Make a Reservation. If you’re going somewhere nice for dinner and assume you’ll just walk right in . . . it’s time to start panicking. You might eventually get a table, but you’ll end up waiting 45 minutes . . . which can put a damper on the whole night.
- Constantly Complaining That It’s a “Hallmark Holiday”. Yes, everyone knows that Valentine’s Day is just a way to sell more greeting cards and chocolate. So don’t harp on it all night. You’ll just look cheap.
- Buying Her a Last-Minute Present at the Nearest Drug Store. If she finds out, she’ll be insulted by the cheapness of the gift, AND because you didn’t plan ahead.
