Flower delivery in boxes seems to be a new reality.

I'd rather get plants that last year round or longer from hubby who picked it out himself from a garden nursery. He's given me some beauties over the years.

Instead of gifting bouquets, a better option would be to gift a flowering plant!
1) They last way longer and will make the person think about you everyday, when they water the flower.
2) Packaging of flowers uses plastic ribbons, tags and plastic wraps, all equaling a huge amount of plastic waste gathered.
3) Potted plants with flowers add to the asthetic beauty of your house, not to mention, their odour is just wonderful.
4) Your house now has more fresh oxygen.
5) You are now spending more than 1/8th than what you spent purchasing that huge bouquet.
6) If you want to gift a fancy bouquet, instead, import a fancy plant sampling.
Think about it.

Stop cutting flowers. It releases the pollen when you do that. Send a live plant

I ordered some for my father when he was in the hospital and they were really ugly quality. Some of the bigger leaves were bruised and had holes in them and I had to pick off a bunch of brown leaves of the flower stems. I called to complain but they wanted a picture and I didn’t think to take one because I had to fix it quickly and run. I’ve never ordered from this place again! 😒😤👎🏻

The reason why I buy them at Trader Joe’s over my local florist is cost. The florist wants $40 for a $10 bouquet of the same flowers. I don’t need a vase and all that Jazz all the time 😬🤷‍♀️

"Everyone love flowers"
Well... DUH! But I don't like dead flowers or fresh-picked flowers.
I prefer to see alive flowers while they're are minding their own business.
It's just weird to see humans give dead plants to show "love". Ever consider useful gifts like umbrella, backpack or money?

The flowers I get from the grocery store are gorgeous, affordable, and make my wife happy. Why would I spend 4 times as much for the same reaction?

It's better and nicer to buy someone flowers in a pot. That way they can have the flowers forever.

which is why if you must order flowers, order directly from a local florist and not a website. If your order is for someone out of town, call a florist local to that area. You will get more bang for your buck & the florist will thank you.
OR - even better - Buy a f*cking orchid.

You can usually get large bouquets of flowers at a farmer's market for about $10 - $15.

You're missing the obvious: that florists tend to lose money on Valentine's Day.

I find it ridiculous that certain holidays have certain expectations in terms of buying certain products/services. It's just a sneaky way for these companies (not just flowers) to sell us stuff that we'll throw away the next day or maybe keep for a few weeks (like flowers) and then throw away.
This is especially true for cards, which are severely overpriced.

Lechiffresix six you’d be shocked if you see the tiny nation of Qatar and how much to global warming they alone contribute

@Joe Joey nope its not though lol! really its not, it doesn't make sense that one continent would consume 50% of the resources of the planet including those that aren't even a necessity . the burden of global warming isn't shared equally.
Joe Joey

Lechiffresix six our consumption in general as a species. It’s not one thing that if we eliminated it would stop climate change
