And nothing says it like a bouquet of flowers they can show off in that next Zoom meeting.

Len Busch Roses in Minneapolis has some advice on the best floral gifts for your loved ones, and how to make sure they get there in time.

  • Order early and ship early to make sure they get the gift by the big day
  • Call your local florist directly to get the best value and service
  • Not all shops deliver on Valentine’s Day, so plan ahead
  • Consider giving a plant instead of flowers, if you want something that will last longer
  • It doesn’t have to be a dozen roses. Small, petite floral arrangements are trendy right now for home office spaces, or even the kitchen, bathroom or bedside table.

Georgia Edgington, lead designer at Len Busch Roses, also has tips on how to arrange a dozen roses for that “wow”

Fun (cheap) birthday gift ideas for kids

Some time ago, I got a message from Elaine G., who had recently joined a mom’s group. With all of her newly minted friendships, she and her child are getting invitations to lots of toddler birthday parties.

Her dilemma took me back to when our boys were small. Birthday parties for all their friends were challenging. That’s why Elaine’s message grabbed my attention. “Can you help me with ideas for birthday gifts for young children that will score with the kids without breaking our budget?” You bet, Elaine. Try these ideas on for size.

The story of me

Give the birthday girl or boy everything they need to write (or draw) the story of their life. For children just learning to read, write or draw, include a list of “prompts” that might include instructing the child to draw a picture of a favorite animal, a place to visit or something that makes them laugh. Package it with a pad or book of drawing paper, markers, crayons and enough prompts to complete all the pages in their book.

Play kit

Spark the interest and imagination of the birthday child with a custom play kit you put together. “Design” the kit on

At dinner with my best friend recently, I told her I was working on a super-important work assignment.

“I need to come up with a list of what we (moms) really want for Valentine’s Day,” I told her over a bottle of wine, which I knew would definitely make the list.

We’re in a pandemic, and it’s been a tough year for most moms, so I wanted my list to be filled with things that would make moms feel spoiled, relaxed, appreciated and pampered. We’re aware of our shortcomings: The pounds we could stand to lose or the good habits we should work to build. But what moms need this Valentine’s Day, in particular, isn’t another online health program or a skin cream guaranteed to make us look less tired.

We are tired. And we deserve luxurious gifts that make our lives feel richer, calmer and
