When is the best time to shop for Valentine's Day?
Like Christmas, you're going to have certain retailers that have shipping constraints, so it is best to shop early. Choosing to ship a bouquet, for instance, should be done several days in advance to ensure it arrives on Valentine's Day. Additionally, depending on the retailer, there may be cutoff dates for shipping that is guaranteed to arrive by Feb. 14. Be sure to look carefully at shipping estimates as you shop or select pickup in-store where available.
