Single or taken, Valentine's Day is great time of year to remind those you care about how special they are to you. There are plenty of ways to celebrate without you throwing a parade or breaking the bank. Here are a few tips to ensure a fun and unique adventure this February 14th.
Keep it simple. The secret to Valentine's Day is not the production of it all, it's the effort behind it. Weather you're going to dinner or ordering in, your plans should be simple but specific to who you are with. This will take the pressure off of both of you, weather you are out with friends or loved ones.
Send Flowers. According to behavioral research conducted at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions and heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive way. So weather they admit it or not, people will always love getting flowers. Your flowers may die, but the intent behind them lasts forever.

Make time for your friends. While friends will sometimes have plans with significant others, make sure you keep your best friend (or friends) in the loops by making sure to include them on some of your plans.
Grabbing a bite to eat before going out with your guy or girl can affirm to your single friends that there more than just a third wheel, but an important part of their life no matter what time of year it is.
Don't wait till the last minute. If you're buying a gift, its best not to be standing in line on the day of the 14th. Keep your gift simple, and give yourself plenty of time to pick something out that you're friend or significant other will love.
Remember to support shopping local by getting flowers from Floral and More. Go that little extra mile by adding a delicious box of chocolates or a cute stuffed bear to make your delivery really stand out. Best friends love chocolate too. To guarantee Valentine's Day delivery, get your order in by Saturday, February 11th at 2 p.m. This February 14, the best gift of all is your time and effort.
