Could it even BE Valentine's without flowers? We think not, that's why we have a huge selection of beautiful blooms waiting for you, no matter what your style is.

Goodies and Gifts
So, the flowers are taken care of, what else? From sweets to gifts and trinkets, Earle's has a huge selection of fun and funky items to go with your fresh flowers.
If I had to choose JUST flowers or JUST sweets, I probably wouldn't be able to answer because my mouth is full of chocolate. Just me? Well lucky for you, Earle's doesn't make you choose...
Moonshine Bars are decadent, hand-painted, chocolate truffles that come in a wide variety of flavors and... select flavors are even infused with alcohol! They come in two-, four-, or ten-packs and we even have the limited-time, Valentine's "Be Mine" Collection (flavors: decadent dark, pink champagne, black raspberry, and chocolate covered strawberry)!

Silk Sensations hand-paints and treats beautiful, watercolor scarves and shawls that would go perfectly with a new pair of DC Designs earrings. Each one is unique and washable!

Magnificent Men's Ideas
Men always seem a little tough to shop for, right? Especially when it comes to Valentine's, a holiday largely focused on women and femininity. Don't forget to show the man in your life how much you love them!
Although flowers are traditionally implied as gifts for women, men love them just as much! Don't let gender norms keep you from putting a huge smile on your beau's face. If you know your man isn't into flowers, try a succulent dish garden instead.
You may be thinking that a little multi-tool would be a lame gift, but hear me out on this one. I got my partner a little multi-tool for Christmas, knowing he needed the needle-nose pliers that were included. I thought it would be a handy little gift, but it turned out to be his favorite! He loved it more than the new Xbox controller and custom mug I got him (not kidding), and even carried it around all Christmas so he'd be ready to lend a hand (also not kidding). I think he uses it every day. Just remember that sometimes the best gifts are the simple ones that we need.
We also have two super cool bottle openers that are just what you need around the house. The first is a wooden, wall-hanging one that could be mounted right next to the refrigerator or trash bin. This one is also engraved with a bicycle! The other is so handy, it could slip right in your wallet. The ace of spades bottle opener is made of stainless steel and is as flat as a credit card, so it's even easier to take wherever you go. BONUS: this one comes with RFID protection, so it protects your personal information from scanners when its in your wallet!
The Bourbon Whiskey Candle takes a traditional gift and adds a masculine twist. These soy wax candles smell great, burn for 120 hours, and come in a repurposed whiskey bottle. These are perfect for any liquor lover and add a rustic touch of décor to your home.
Originating from the hit TV series Parks & Recreation, Galentine's celebrates empowering, female
relationships. Show your girlfriends a little love by sending a gift on February 13th!
BFF Mug Arrangement - These sweet spring flowers come in a mug that reads "BFF forever & ever" and is perfect to send by delivery straight from our shop.
Best Mom Ever Wine Glass Arrangement - Remind your mom that she is loved, appreciated, and amazing with a surprise wine glass overflowing with fresh, spring flowers.
I am Woman, Hear Me Pour Wine Glass Arrangement - This wine glass is bigger than it looks, and comes filled with a mix of pinky-purple flowers; perfect for the badass woman in your life who is always getting it done.
You're My Unicorn Bundle - This cute bundle comes with a little unicorn friend, straight from Jelly Cat. The bright pink flowers are accented with little crystals and you can't forget about the Moonshine Bars!
Pamper Me Basket - Skip the flowers with this fun gift basket designed to give your girlfriend a relaxing spa night in. It comes with bubble bath, lotion, a candle, clay face mask, and some other goodies for a fun surprise!
Remember that you decide how to make this Valentine's Day special. Any of these flowers and gifts could be perfect for your sweetheart if you know what they love, so take a moment to put some thought into it or even ask your beloved what they want or need! Be cupid rather than waiting for him to turn up!
If you don't have a Valentine, let your friends or family know how you much you love and appreciate them. Or, treat yourself to what you love and remind yourself how amazing and worthy you are!
