I love white roses, I mean really love. But the price of roses gets so insanely high around Valentine’s Day that we have an agreement to not get flowers for Valentine’s. I was wondering what other bees thought about flowers for Valentine’s?

He’ll buy me flowers randomly throughout the year, but roses on Valentine’s day is a little cliche and unnecessary for us

I’d rather my husband get me a piece of jewelry instead of flowers. You can easily get a cute pair of earrings for the price of something that is going to die in a week.

Nope. My SO knows better. I despise recieving flowers.

It’s my half-birthday, so he’ll sometimes get me something for that…but never anything for Valentine’s Day, and I’m certainly not the type of person to DEMAND or EXPECT flowers. Ha.
I couldn’t care less, though. It’s just a day.

I actually love receiving flowers, but roses have never been my favorite. And actually, SO kind of ruined red roses for me after giving me this little bit of history trivia: Red roses used to be a symbol of opposition to women’s suffrage back in the day! He’s a park ranger and a history buff, so I believe him, even though it was a shocker!
We’re just going to spend Valentine’s Day cooking a nice dinner, watching movies, and getting some quality time with each other after him being away at police academy. If he chooses to give me flowers, then that’s just icing on the cake.

I’ve despised Valentine’s Day ever since my single days and it’s carried over even though I’m with the FI – so we don’t really celebrate it. And I get sad when I receive flowers and they die so it’s a no go for me.

@renwoman: No, he doesn’t, because I’m allergic to them! If he got them for me, I would appreciate the sentiment but then wonder how much he really knows me, haha. I think the flowers are a little overdone on Valentine’s Day though. I’d much rather have a nice dinner with him and exchange a simple gift.

My FI has only bought me flowers one time for Valentine’s Day and it was before we were dating in high school! I’ve hinted at it a TON especially because I just bought this really nice vase for our table. I don’t want roses – they’re outrageous expensive and I don’t even like them that much! Any flowers will do. We’ll see if he comes through. Haha.

I love love love flowers. FH gets them for me sometimes randomly throughout the year, but he knows I like them on Valentine’s Day

No. We’re not really into Valentine’s Day. I kinda find it unbearably cheesy. We celebrate anniversaries, but not with roses. I’m not huge on cut flowers.
He did once buy me 2 dozen long stemmed red roses for absolutely no reason at all. Just the one time, he just showed up for our date with a big motherlode of roses (a normal date in all other respects). He does stuff like that every so often, it’s never the same. He says the ideas just hit him. I like his spontaneity 🙂

Other. I don’t ‘expect’ flowers at all, but he always buys me flowers on special occasions.

We don’t celebrate valentine’s day at my request. I think it’s silly and a cop out to have a hallmark “holiday” him force him to celebrate our love. I’d rather he do it by his own free will on random days when he chooses to.

All flowers are ridiculously overpriced on Valentine’s Day, so he’s off the hook. Roses are also one of my least favorite flowers.
I would rather he came home with potted orchid or a bunch of cut tulips from the corner store.
