I know I don’t have to remind the ladies that Valentines Day is coming up but the guys might need a gentile reminder. So fellas, listen up. You have less than 3 weeks until Valentines Day. Don’t wait until the last minute and give her another coupon book good for “take out the trash without complaining” and “10 minute back massage.” That was fine to give your mom when you were 7 but you’re in the big league now. It’s time to step up and give flowers!
Every girl loves flowers. Heck, lots of guys like flowers too. The problem is, every year around February 14 and Mother’s Day the price of flowers quadruples. Paying $65 for 6 tiny flowers in a coffee mug makes me a little sick to my stomach. What’s a guy to do? The answer is simple. Go to JustFreshRoses.com. They sell 50 roses for $50 (with free shipping) and they sell them at this price 365 days a year.
For all of you math challenged individuals, that’s one dollar a rose. And I’m not talking about some tiny little boring rose, they have 11 different varieties of huge beautiful roses. They let you pick 2 different varieties for your 50 roses. They were kind enough to let me try out their service and I have to say I was quite impressed.
I choose Circus and Cool Water as my two varieties. It takes about 4 days from when you place your order until your delivery arrives. JustFreshRoses isn’t a florist, they are a rose farm. That means when you place your order your roses are still growing on a bush. They cut the roses to order and ship them straight to your door! It doesn’t get any fresher than that.
When my roses arrived they were neatly packaged in a box and they were delicately protected. I opened them, removed the leaves I didn’t want, cut them to size and placed them into vases. With 50 roses, I thought about surprising my wife with several small bouquets all over the house but instead decided to go with a shock-n-awe effect of 2 huge bouquets.
The two varieties that I chose are absolutely stunning but they don’t necessarily go well with each other. Meaning I wasn’t able to mix the two colors into the same bouquet. So next time I order I’ll keep that in mind. I still can’t get over how big the roses are! They are huge and just keep getting bigger as they open up.
50 roses is a whole lot of roses, so this is something you could even order to share. You could keep 25 and give 25 away. Two guys could go in on an order for Valentines Day and they’d both walk away looking like heroes. Churches could place several orders for Mother’s Day and give each mom a rose. At $1/rose it’ll be the best deal in town! You could even place several orders for a wedding and put all the money you saved toward the honeymoon.
A huge thank you to JustFreshRoses for letting me try out their service. Keep your eye out on the blog leading up to Mother’s Day when we are going to partner to do a rose giveaway for one lucky subscriber.
