Peter knows that there are fewer things that make a woman happier then getting a bouquet of beautiful flowers. Oh sure, a nice diamond ring, mink stole or fancy new Maserati would probably do the trick as well, but ultimately the simple gesture of buying a flower can truly bring a glimmer of love into your woman’s eyes.
When buying flowers for a loved one there are a few things you need to consider:
Type of Flower
I know that this probably seems pretty obvious, but before you set out on a journey to buy flowers you had better figure out what kind you want to get! You have a lot of options in this area and the option you choose will determine exactly how much of a hole it will leave in your wallet. Interested in a simple bouquet of carnations or daisies? Well then you can get a gorgeous vase full for less than $40. No flower will do for your gal but a rose? Then you may have to pony up the bigger bucks – depending on season you might pay $10. For a single rose! But guess what, in Peter’s experience you have to spend the money to get the grand reward, if you know what I mean!
Type of Container
If you have a lot of vases around the house then you can buy simple cut flowers and then use your own vase. If you go this route you will save money. However, who wants the hassle? And if you are shipping this gift to a friend who lives elsewhere then you will want to make sure they have a place to put their flowers and the only way that you can make sure of that is to buy a vase or basket. Fortunately, most bouquets these days come with this option. Peter answers that you should go for a simple yet elegant style, particularly if you have purchased a dozen roses.
Where to Buy
You really only have a few options when it comes to buying flowers. You can visit your local corner flower cart, which unless you are very lucky you probably don’t have. Or you can visit a flower shop in a strip mall or something, but that requires getting out of the house. So the last option is the best – buy your flowers online from the comfort of your own sofa. What could be better?
So in summary, if you want to show your lady how much you love her, skip the fancy car and go for a wonderful bouquet of flowers. And that’s Peter’s Answer!
