Valentine's Day: Gift Ideas for that Special Someone

From flowers to jewelry, Patch has got you covered!

With Valentine’s Day just a few short days away, many are scrambling to look for the “perfect gift” for their loved one.

Here at Berkeley Heights-Mountainside Patch, we’ve decided to once again come to the rescue with some last-minute displays of affection that will show your better half just how much you care.

For flowers, in Mountainside offers a wide variety of roses to suit just about anyone’s taste. Some popular items include:

  • Red Roses: With Valentine’s Day being a largely traditional holiday, few could go wrong with this classic. Customers at Christoffers seem to agree, as red roses remain a popular choice around this time of year. “Red roses are at a premium price, since there’s such great demand," said shop owner Kurt W. Christoffers.

Christoffers’ Price: $80/dozen boxed, $95/dozen with a vase arrangement

  • Esperance Roses: An item that has gained a “dedicated following," these roses are an old-fashioned cabbage rose. Ivory in color with a pink lip, these beautiful flowers also have a long lifespan. “I frequently get reports that these last anywhere from ten days to two weeks or more,” said Christoffers.

Christoffers’ Price: $65/dozen boxed, $80/dozen with a vase arrangement

  • “Big Fun” Roses: The difference between these and the Esperance Roses are simply a matter of taste, since both are the same price. Hot pink, peach, and coral in color, these are sure to open up beautifully just in time for Valentine’s Day.
