We Choo-choo Choose You!
That's right, Valentine's is just around the corner.

In fairness, we all know what your significant other really wants…a Baby Yoda plush toy. But they don’t start shipping until May, so a Daily Blooms bouquet is the next best option, don’t you think?

February 14th is one of our busiest days of the year, and due to overwhelming demand, we've opened up pre-orders for our special Valentine's offerings.
"But why all this fuss about Valentine’s Day?" I hear you ask. The history of Valentine’s Day is extremely lengthy, shrouded in mystery, and surprisingly, it’s also quite morbid. Some say that the day is named for the three men named Valentine who were reportedly beheaded (single true crime lovers, there's something for you too!) by a Roman Emperor named Claudius II for performing secret marriages and trying to shack up male soldiers with single ladies. 

While some historians believe that the Christian church created Valentine’s Day as a feast honouring the saints of Valentine’s. This pagan celebration was dedicated to women’s fertility as well as honouring Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, and Roman founders Romulus and Remus. After thorough research, I’ve found that this festival was very sexually charged with lots of blood sacrifices and violence.

Maybe don’t investigate it too much…or do, if you’re into that kind of thing 😉
Modern-day Valentine's is less about bloody sacrifice and all about expressing your love through words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, quality time and physical touch (yes these are the five love languages and I think it’s very important you find out which one you speak). But the sixth love language is, of course, flowers, and that's where we come in.

This year we’ve got two special bouquets on offer over three days of Valentine festivities.
Valentine's Day - February 14th

Whether you've known your special someone for twenty seconds or twenty years, our Valentine's bouquet is the perfect gift for the most romantic day of the year.

​Want to gift something extra special? Pair your bouquet with one of our handcrafted Botanical Love vases at an exclusive Valentine's Day discount - the second most perfect match of the day.
Day After Valentine's - February 15th

If you miss out on Friday’s bouquet, we’ve got you covered for Saturday delivery. C’mon it’s the thought that counts over getting the correct day right!

Either way, your significant other will still love and appreciate you for putting in the effort! Go you!!
Galentine's Day - February 13th

"What is Galentine's Day? Oh, it's only the best day of the year."

Galentine's Day has far more pleasant origins than Valentines, beginning as an annual brunch celebration of the platonic loves of your life.

Our Galentine's Day bouquet is a celebration of friendship, support and admiration. Girl Gang assemble!
