Flowers, candy, fresh fruit all a part of Valentine's

Florists say the forecast won't keep them from delivering to your valentine on Friday.

Flowers are of course a very popular gift for Valentine's Day, and you don't have to worry about your roses making it on time.

"My delivery people are good sports and they are experienced," said Joyce Kuntze, with Arrangements by Joyce. "We do run multiple vehicles so they'll just have to be prepared. They'll have to dress properly and people will have to understand, the recipient, and even the customers will have to understand that their deliveries are maybe running a little late. We're doing the best we can."

Be sure to snap a picture of your special valentine's day gift and send it to c-news!

Or, there's another alternative, Valentine's Day fruit like chocolate dipped strawberries.

Your valentine may complain about the calories, but not the taste.So how much does this kind of thing cost?"Sometimes the prices vary," said Sara Pullen with Edible Arraingements. " I mean, we don't change our prices but a lot of times prices do vary based on freezes. And you know if there's a lot of rain in California, wherever. Sometimes it affects the quality but right now the strawberries are perfect, our pineapple is perfect, and the chocolate is always in season."

So if you can't decide between fruit or chocolate, maybe fruit and chocolate's the way to go, so your love can get the best of both worlds.
