"We can still help you even if it's last minute. Just come down and see us," Watson said. "We have things that you're able to pick up. We can still take a few delivery orders, so even if you wait til the last minute, it's not a problem. We're here to help you."

The Flower Basket does not offer Sunday delivery and asks that all delivery orders be made by Friday.

Whichever florist you choose, be sure to check their delivery schedule and open hours to make sure your gift is delivered in time.

The Flower Basket will be open for extended hours on Sunday for last-minute shoppers.
