    So far he hasn’t, but I’m sure in the future he will. Though I would enjoy them, his ex took MAJOR advantage of his giving side and demanded flowers every DAY (yes, you read that right – she would get mad if he didn’t buy her new flowers every. single. day.) and I don’t want to remind him of her so I’ve never really brought it up more than once or twice.

    But I’m not lacking in special gifts – he gave me a Keurig for Christmas, bought me a budoir photoshoot package and a gigantic stuffed giraffe for Valentine’s Day. All of which will last far beyond any flowers I could have received (:

    Those are beautiful!  Darling Husband gets me flowers for my birthday, valentine’s day, and our anniversary.  He also buys them spontaniously sometimes too.  It’s very sweet.  My dad taught landscaping and horiticulture for 30 years so I LOVE plants and flowers.

    I get a huge thing of Asian lillies on v-day.  Other than that, he gets me great little presents (thumb nail so I could put all our wedding pics on it for my dad).  We both think the flowers are a waste of money, unless it’s a cute little bundle from walmart for $5.00.

    My SO always wants to get me flowers but I don’t like them. Yes, they’re pretty but I would much rather spend the money on wine or something practical. I’ve gotten them maybe twice in 2 years but my SO did send me one of those edible arrangements one time & I LOVED that! I had to flat out say “I don’t want you to spend money on flowers” though, otherwise I’d have gotten them every month!

    I have told my Fiance not to bother getting me flowers, my cat will eat them!  Even though there are non toxic ones out there, I don’t want money to be spent on flowers that my cat will just chew up right away.

    I wish Fiance got me flowers. The only time I get flowers will be when we are supermarketing together, and it is a special occassion that week (after I go aww flowers! upon walking in the doors). So then I get to choose my own, lucky me… 

    He has gotten me flowers when we are reunited after a long-distance once or twice. 

    Most often if there are flowers in our house it was because I bought them for myself!

    I am usually a very practical girl and hate “impractical” gifts, but I have to admit, I’m a sucker for flowers. In two and a half years together, I’ve only gotten them once, but he did a great job when he got those. Still working on training him for more in the future. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Special Occasions or Rarely/Never – my stupid cat eats the greens/babies breath or ferns, then pukes everywhere…so I like to avoid flowers in the house so I don’t have to clean it up.  When he does get them, they are sitting on top of the fridge, and I never get to enjoy them because I have to keep them up out of sight from the cat so she doesn’t eat them.

    I usually get flowers once or twice a year. He sent them to my office when I started my new job and I usually get them on Valentine’s Day.

    @Brideonabudgetlauren:  I was so floored when it arrived. He kept saying he was going to get me a giraffe (it’s kind of my “thing” so I have one from almost everyone I know) – I was NOT expecting one almost the size of me ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    @Stargaze31:  Yeah, I think that’s where my SO is, too, and I totally understand it. Once we live together I might see if I can steer him in the direction of pretty flowers every once in a while ’cause I do love them. But if not, hell, I’ll just buy my own ^_^

    I get them sometimes for special occassions – our first anniversary (but not our second). This past Valentine’s Day (but not our first Valentine’s Day). There is no pattern.

    He won MAJOR points though for the flowers I got this past Valentine’s Day. I was in Rome and he was in Texas for work – so he sent me flowers at my hotel in ROME! Pretty cool!!!
