Hey. It's Valentine's Day. Did you forget?

Don't worry. Your friendly neighborhood Kiss FM flower experts got you covered.

Even though you're cutting it super close by waiting until the last minute, there are plenty of florists around Boise where you can find something beautiful for your honey.

If you can't make it out to a florist, or if the lines get a little too long, try checking out your local Albertsons or Fred Meyer for some great stuff. Everything from flowers, candy, chocolates, or stuffed animals, you can find some real treasures if you take a few minutes to look around.

Thinking about getting roses for your lover? Unsure on which color to get? We don't blame you. It can be confusing. Here's a little guide:

  • Dark red rose: unconscious beauty
  • White rose: purity, innocence, reverence, silence
  • Pink rose: grace, happiness, gentleness
  • Yellow rose: joy, friendship, the promise of a new beginning
  • Orange rose: desire and enthusiasm
  • Lavender rose: love at first sight
  • Coral rose: friendship, modesty, sympathy

So why, exactly, do we give our loved ones flowers on Valentine's Day? ProFlowers.com has the answer:

The history of giving your loved one Valentine’s Day flowers comes from the old-fashioned custom of sending floral bouquets to pass on non-verbal messages. Introduced in the 18th century by Charles II of Sweden, each flower had a specific meaning attached to it, making it possible to have an entire conversation using only flowers. Today, people continue to send flowers on special occasions or to express sentiments of love and admiration.

Flowers not really your thing? Still unsure of what to buy? How about taking your pookie bear out for some free coffee on Valentine's Day?

Best of luck, you loving lover. May 2/14/17 be your best one yet!
