Cupid’s Countdown #5 | Flower Power, Sweet Treats & More from English Daisy

2 mins read

Cupid had all the heart eyes the minute he stepped inside English Daisy where he took one look at all of the lush green flowering gifts and was immediately whisked away to the English countryside. Surrounded by English Daisy’s antiques, their options for your Valentine Gift Giving are why Cupid chose this popular Lageshulte spot as #5 on his countdown to February 14th in Barrington.

Whether you’re shopping for a friend, a teacher, your spouse, (or  yourself), English Daisy will surely have that special token of your affection for just about anyone on your list. Here are just a few of the items Cupid picked up.

Sweet Treats

Have a friend who could use some relaxation? The English Daisy just started carrying CBD gummies, strawberry-flavored and tied with a bow, to give you the ultimate relaxation. For something salty, pick up a can of Belmont peanuts – think flavors like Bloody Mary, Dill Pickle, and Chili Lime. For something a bit sweeter, grab some chocolate from Four Brothers, located right in Wheaton. Select a lovely dish or container for a gift that’ll keep giving!


A Little Bit of Nature

While flowers can be nice, what about something that lasts a little bit longer?! The English Daisy is known to locals as the place to get live topiaries and plants and they have upped the ante for V-day. Stop-in and get heart-shaped angel wine topiaries, ivy topiaries, blooming cyclamens, violets, daffodils, hyacinths, and much more.

Something Unique

For something unique and a little cutesy, check out their needle felted collection. Done by hand by a local artisan, these one-of-a-kind gifts come in everything from rabbits and mice, to heart pockets and heart garland, to fruits and vegetables!

What if you are far away from your Valentine? Or what if your Valentine is allergic to or can’t accept fresh flowers? The English Daisy has the solution! You have to check-out their Pop-Up Flower Cards, made from recycled paper, and come in a glass seam envelope that you can send through the mail! The cards are also perfect for family members spending time in the hospital or nursing homes that don’t allow real florals.
