Shari’s Berries – If you haven’t tried Shari’s Berries yet, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse!

You can’t go wrong with this one!

Proflowers – There’s still time to get a dozen roses delivered for just $19.99. That definitely beats what you’ll pay anywhere else! I have ordered and received flowers from Proflowers many times and I’ve never been disappointed!
