A Valentine's Day impression - Red Envelope & Pro Flowers

Confession time! It's not that I don't like Valentine's Day... I DO, but I NEVER know what to buy. Oh, I pick up interesting gifts for my friends & family here and there, but I just give them to them right away. Then I'm faced with days like February 14th. I mean, what do you buy for a guy (or a woman) without spending DAYS running from store to store looking for that PERFECT gift? That's a lot of pressure.


This year, I ordered gifts from Red Envelope. Now I'm taking a gamble that my recipients don't read my blog every day (as a matter of fact I KNOW that they only come on every now and then), so I'm going to spill the beans.

"B" just got a brand new bedroom set. He and his fiancé "S" recently moved into a new apartment. I don't know why I asked this, but I wanted to know if he owned a pair of slippers. Maybe it's because I hadn't owned slippers in YEARS and recently bought a pair (making me realize just how much I missed walking around the house in comfort). He said that he can't ever remember owning a pair. Wait, does that make me a terrible mother? I never bought my son slippers. So...off to Red Envelope I went to purchase not just a pair of slippers, but a MONOGRAMMED pair (Heart 'n Sole slippers). With visions of him in a smoking jacket and slippers (a la Hugh Heffner), I pressed "SEND."

That just started me on a THEME gift tirade. Check out who's going to be warm and toasty in the mornings?


Now, my problem is this....how do I get Mr. "S" to buy me one of these thoughtful Valentine's Day gifts  that I just fell in love with on the Red Envelope site? Do I just leave the screen on my laptop OPEN facing him in the morning when he wakes up (WITH A GIANT ARROW)? He's not too good in the hint department. Hmmm....

Discover exclusive gifts for everyone, including the man who has everything (like mine). He’ll love perfecting his favorite craft beer with the Home Brewery Kit, among other selections from RedEnvelope’s Gifts for Him Collection. Moms will love keepsakes like Reasons I Love U Stones or elegant jewelry, like the Helix necklace that I'm in ♥ with (that's it on the left and if you'd like to call, write or sky-write the hint to Mr. "S"...I'd owe you big time).

The thing that I LIKE BEST about ordering from them is that whether you're a traditionalist and want to send Valentine's Day flowers or Candy (or dipped strawberries...YUM) or want to send something that's more unusual they have such a wide variety to choose from that it's easy. Once you've picked out their gifts, simply choose delivery dates (including day-of shipping), select gift wrap, add a personalized card, and you’re all set.

I'll post again when the gifts arrive. In the meantime, I wanted to give one of my readers the chance to pick up some great Valentine's Day gifts as well.


RIGHT NOW if you LIKE Red Envelope on Facebook - you can get 20% off of your next order! 

Also, by following @redenvelope and @proflowers you'll get the 411 on GREAT gift ideas and special offers.

I received a gift certificate to facilitate this review. All opinions are strictly my own.
