"Americans are looking forward to pampering and indulging their loved ones with flowers, candy, dinner and all of the other Valentine's Day stops", National Retail Federation President and CEO Matthew Shay said.
With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, florists prepare for the busiest time in the floral industry.
"As one of the largest privately-owned flower farms in Colombia, we depend on a reliable logistics partner to ship millions of blooms during this important day", said Sanchez.
"It's a lot of last minute guys and a majority of it is over the phone for deliveries", Mrs Swift said.
Despite all of the love, 53 percent of women said they would end their relationship if they didn't get anything on February 14th.
Workers have been taking hundreds of orders and prepping for hundreds of deliveries. Wood added local florists can also help walk you through your budget and get the most flowers for your money.
"I think a combination of cut flowers and plants will always be greatly appreciated due to their longevity", McKinley said. "They last longer too".
Flower arrangements can contain many other flowers besides roses.
Canadians are big on roses, according to Statistics Canada.
Brown said that the day takes a lot of work.
Finally, roses the number one spot on the list. Prices for a dozen red roses range between $63 and $75 at area florists for a simple arrangement.
"With spend on Valentine's Day rising 15 per cent on 2016, it's clear that love doesn't come cheap anymore", Mr Baumann said. "It's more of a human connection when you know who grew the flowers that you're buying".
The feelings most flower and gift shop employees experience when that special time of year rolls around, Valentine's Day. Use some creativity to show your Valentine that you want to spend more time together.
Frank Diaz, the global marketing manager for the UPS Americas region, said the carrier has expanded its temperature-controlled floral operations in recent days "to move more than 514,000 boxes of flowers".
"Multiple flowers can mean the same thing", McKinley said. "My grandma wasn't able to get out and grow flowers and she ordered bulbs for years". Chantel paid $60.00 for the vase of flowers and had them sent to her friend in Florida for her 90th Birthday. Being one that doesnt follow the status quo, and to poke a little fun at Valentines Day, I make it my mission every year to celebrate with my wife on the thirteenth, one day before everyone else is going insane with spending and trying to squeeze in late reservation. "So we're picking them up, working on the arrangements, then sending them back out the door".
