Why It’s Smart to Order Valentine’s Day Flowers Early

Candy’s being sold in heart-shaped boxes and teddy bears are flying off the shelves, which can only mean one thing — Valentine’s Day is almost here! Our Albuquerque florists at Peoples Flower Shops are here to remind you that the best way to make plans for Valentine’s Day is to do so early. So, book your dinner reservations now, choose your gifts, and get ready to order your flowers in advance. When everything’s already taken care of, you’ll be able to relax and your Valentine’s company when the most romantic day of the year arrives.

Why We Recommend Ordering Flowers Early for Valentine’s Day


1. Easy Delivery

When you order your flowers early, you’ll enjoy a timely delivery. Valentine’s Day and the days leading up to the holiday are our busiest time of the year, so delivery schedules fill up fast.

2. Longer Celebration

This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday, which makes it the perfect opportunity to celebrate a whole week of romance. Have your flowers delivered on Monday, so your recipient can enjoy the flowers for the whole holiday.

3. Get Your First Choice of Flowers

Millions of bouquets are delivered for Valentine’s Day every year, which means the most popular designs, flowers, and colors sell out fast. To ensure you receive your first selection of products, order in advance.

4. Save Money

Flowers are sold at reduced prices in January. If you order early, you’ll be able to get better pricing. Then, you can put the extra money toward your romantic Valentine’s Day plans.

How Soon Should You Order Your Valentine’s Day Flowers?

It’s best to place your order about a week early, and we recommend scheduling the delivery for the 11th or 12th. If you have any special requests or plan to purchase a personalized design, you should initiate the order even sooner.

Getting a Gorgeous Valentine’s Bouquet from Your Local Flower Shop

When you order from a local flower shop, you know with whom you are dealing. Our florists stand behind every design that leaves our flower shop, and we strive to turn all of our customers into repeat customers. So, your bouquet is just as important to us as it is to you. You’ll receive much better service and a higher-quality product. If you encounter any issues with the order, it will also be much easier to achieve a resolution and be fully satisfied.

More Tips for Ordering Valentine’s Day Flowers

When choosing a bouquet for Valentine’s Day, we highly recommend selecting a design that’s one of our seasonal specials being offered. These designs are created from the freshest flowers available in our area, and as a result, make the best choices. If you do want something that’s a little more unique, it’s best to order well in advance to make sure we’re able to get the type of flowers you have in mind from our supplier in time for the holiday.

We also recommend having your flowers delivered early. Delivery schedules on the 14th are jam-packed, which means if a driver encounters any sort of delay, it could delay your floral delivery. It’s best to have your flowers arrive early, rather than experiencing a mix-up and missing the delivery because you’re already out to a fancy dinner.

Whether you order online, in-person, or over the phone, our expert florists at Peoples Flower Shops are here to help you choose the perfect flowers for your Valentine.
