IT IS not just men sending flowers to their loved ones on Valentine’s Day; women are embracing this trend and are also sending flowers to their partners at work.
Regent Florist’s, Louise McLennan said it was still mostly men sending flowers but they were still seeing girls do it as well.
“Girls enjoy sending flowers to men’s work, it is one of those times they can get away with it,” Ms McLennan said.
Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest days of the year for Hamilton’s Regent Florist with 2000 roses expected to arrive today.
Ms McLennan said they needed 10 extra staff in on Friday to help with the increased demand of flowers and gifts.
“We are hoping it will be a really good Valentine’s Day, Friday It is a great day to have Valentine’s Day as you can send flowers through the day and then go out for dinner that night and then it is the weekend,” she said.
