When is Valentine's Day 2023?
February 14th – Valentine's Day – falls on a Tuesday this year, which means you may have to get creative when it comes to date ideas and special surprises – especially if you and/or your loved ones are busy with work or school.
This is why sending flowers for delivery can be the best gift idea. Rosaholics delivers nationwide, so it's super easy to get those fresh bouquets to your loved one without a problem! Don't try and scramble around town to find the perfect blooms – order fresh roses online and we'll do the rest!
All-Day Surprises and Fun Date Ideas
Start the day by leaving a love note for your sweetheart to find. Loss for words? Keep it short and sweet by listing a few things you admire about your partner. A charming note is the type of keepsake they'll tuck away and cherish for years to come – no matter how bad your handwriting!
In addition to handwritten notes and poems, handmade gifts are always a good idea for Valentine's Day. If you've spent years perfecting a craft, like woodworking, pottery, or painting, consider creating a special keepsake to gift your significant other on Valentine's Day. A handmade gift carries a lot more significance than a generic box of chocolates from the store.
And for those who aren't so crafty, you can't go wrong with a special framed photograph of your first date, first vacation together, or other special occasion.
Tip: have the photo professionally printed and framed.
Gifts are great, but making time for your loved one is important, too. Take your better-half out to lunch for a mid-day treat on Valentine's Day. Keep it a surprise and plan something sweet, like a picnic in the park with their favorite foods or the place you had your first date. Tight on time? Pick up a coffee and deliver it to their office to let them know you care, even if their schedule is super busy.
And for the late afternoon or evening, plan a fun activity to do together – something that's new for both of you! Sharing new experiences is a great way to bond. Check out your local community center or tourist office to see what's available in your neck of the woods and pick something that neither of you has done before. For example, sign up for a glass blowing class, scavenger hunt, escape room, hot air balloon, or dance-aerobics class. Even if the activity turns out to be silly, you'll share some laughs and bring some fun into your relationship!
Last but not least – fresh flowers! Long-stem roses are a classic way to express heartfelt love and affection. Even if you've managed to goof up the rest of the big day's surprises, you simply can't go wrong with a stunning bouquet of roses on Valentine's Day.
To make V-Day preparations even sweeter, we've got awesome new collections ready to go! Whether you're playing Romeo or sending flowers to close family and friends, check out our exclusive Valentine's Day Collections for the best ideas on sending bouquets this year.
How to Decorate for Valentine's Day
Decorating for a date – or making your home feel festive for February 14th – is easy when you've got fresh flowers to work with. Here are 5 tips to set the mood for romance.
- Color Contrast: Red is a must, but make sure you pick a contrasting color to help the décor pop. Think: bright red rose petals on a black tablecloth, or a bundle of white roses in a red vase.
- Only Real Roses: Now is not the time for other flower varieties or silk petals! Real roses are best for expressing passion. Make sure you get the freshest, full size blooms – they’ll smell heavenly.
- Candlelight Dinner + Roses: Set the table with a romantic centerpiece – fresh flowers, scattered rose petals, and candles. There’s nothing sweeter!
- Long Stem Roses: Go big – really big – with stems up to 40 inches.
- Rose Petal Pathway: Make a petal pathway to the bedroom…No explanation needed!
