This is the best deal I’ve seen yet for flowers: ProFlowers is offering 12 assorted roses with a vase and chocolates for only $23.99 if you order by Friday. I especially like ProFlowers because the flowers always look like they’ve just been cut when they arrive; I’ve never had droopy or old-looking roses. The deal comes with a red vase that you can change out for an extra charge. You can also add other candies to your order if desired.
If you’re still looking for a loving gift, check out Brad’s Deals Blog, which is featuring a different Valentine’s offer every day. Today’s deal is a men’s Movado 800 series watch for $299 (regularly $495). Past deals have included 20 percent off Ralph Lauren Romance perfume, pajama sets, diamond earrings and more.
If you’re the sustainable living type or you just like to think out of the vase, Pike Nurseries is running specials this week on flowers that will last much longer than your typical Valentine’s Day delivery. On sale Thursday through Tuesday will be 7-inch pot Cymbidium orchids for $29.97, 6-inch pot florist hydrangeas for $12.97 and 6.5-inch pot cyclamen for $9.97. Also, Daphne Odora will be 25 percent off this week and, of course, rose plants will be 25 percent off. – By Lauren Davidson, Atlanta Bargain Hunter
