Senate releases Valentine’s Day gift instructions

For those of you who are lucky enough to be expecting flowers in the next few days, a Senate source sent ITK a notice about the do’s and don’ts for Valentine’s Day flower and gift deliveries.
 
All Senate staff are requested to advise friends and family not to send flowers or gifts to Senate office buildings and the Capitol.
 
But if that happens, be warned, you may end up with wilted flowers and/or stale candy. Most deliveries have to go through inspection and won’t be available for 72 hours.
 
Also, the notice instructs those who are contacted by a delivery person to meet them in an outside public area. You’re then supposed to inspect the flowers and bring them back to your office on your own.
 
The notice says the directions are “the spirit of being practical while maintaining security on Valentine’s week.”
