Stores offer advice for Valentine's Day procrastinators

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Valentine's Day is only hours away but for men who wait until the last minute, the shopping has yet to begin. Tomorrow, local florists and chocolatiers expect a rush on traditional items and they have advice to make that process as easy as possible.

"My suggestion would be that you come in and see what we have so you can kind of pick out what you want," said Mickey Sharp, the owner of Flowers Etc. on 34th and Indiana. He says coming in is the best option because you can choose what your bouquet looks like and can take the flowers with you on the spot.

Sharp says it's a safe bet to choose a traditional bouquet for the woman in your life.

"Roses, everybody wants roses of course. They come in so many different colors and if you want to do a variety, lilies and daisies are a good option."

Pam Marshall owns Box of Rain Floral on 98th and Quaker. Their shop was filled with bouquets ready to be shipped out tomorrow and Pam says when it comes to color, the brighter the flowers, the more impressive.

"Women always like to have a lot of color in their bouquet and a lot of true colors. I like a lot of contrast in the bouquet and I think that makes it prettier and makes the flowers showier," she said.

If your significant other has more of a sweet tooth, you might consider heading over Otto's Granary. Manager Scott Carter says ultimately the type of chocolate you choose depends on who you are buying it for, but offered his recommendations:

Seduction, a box of dark chocolates with raspberry or almond toffee was his first choice. And for dark chocolate lovers, he suggested the Godiva chocolate lava cake.
