With Valentine’s Day just 2 days away, you may already have your cards picked out and your Valentine’s Day flowers ordered and gifts purchased. If you are one of those people who wait to order flowers, you still have a little bit of time. Your selection may be somewhat limited, but you should still have some choices. So, how can you save money on flowers for Valentines Day? We have some tips below!
One way to save money on flowers for Valentines Day is to purchase less-popular flowers. Daisies, carnations, and tulips tend to cost less than roses. Red roses are one of the most popular flowers that people buy for others as a Valentine’s Day gift. However, if you purchase roses that are yellow or pink, you will likely pay less than you would for red roses. You can also opt to buy mixed bouquets that contain a few roses as well as other less expensive flowers. This decreases the overall cost as well.
If you order your flowers from large, online retailers such as 1800Flowers or Teleflora, you can use discount codes to save money. Check Retailmenot.com and groupon.com for discount codes and savings coupons. The Bouqs is another online retailer that offers reasonably priced flowers and they offer discount codes.
Quite possibly the best way to save on Valentines Day flowers is to celebrate a day late. Yes, you read that correctly. You can save a lot of money by celebrating on February 14. Flowers are typically marked up just before Valentines Day, but the prices tend to drop the day after. If you really want to save money and don’t mind delaying your celebration just a bit, this is the best way to save the most. Plus, chocolate will also be on sale so it really is a win-win situation all around!
