Do you like receiving flowers?

Valentine's is coming and my partner usually buys me flowers. I'm torn because I love to receive them but I feel like maybe he shouldn't buy them since they are just going to die? What do you think about flowers?

Maybe I'm just spiteful because of allergies, but I hate flowers as a presents; they die in a couple of days and are a waste of money. My version of an ideal romantic gesture is a surprise of tacos or a thick pair of socks.

I think flowers are nice sometimes but I would rather something that lasts longer.

I wouldn't want a big bouquet, just because they do die, and I feel bad letting them just die in my kitchen. But I do enjoy getting a few flowers. My husband surprises me every now and then with a single stargazer lily or two. My favorite flower, and even just a few of them scent up the whole house, lol.

I love to get flowers, tulips are some of my favorites, but I also like when I get flowers that are growing in a pot so they don't die in a couple of days (it usually takes a couple of weeks for my black thumb to kill them )

Black thumb here too! I'm 2 years running on dead poinsettias by New Years. I just don't know how to keep them alive.

I agree that maybe one or two of my favorite flower would be nice, but honestly, I think flowers are a waste. I like more thoughtful gifts.

I don't mind if I get flowers, but it doesn't matter if I don't. I'd rather get something that will last.. or even a plant that I can take care of instead of some flowers that will die.

It is the thought that counts, but, yeah. Lol

I'd rather get a plant. Especially plants that I can eat, like herbs or fruits.

NNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!

If he wants to get me something he should get me a card or better yet make it himself. I think flowers are expensive and overrated.

Flowers are nice, but a card that someone took the time to pick out is nice as well.

my wife does not like cut flowers because they die too fast. I always get her a potted plant, that way she can enjoy it for many years to come.

Uh, duh I am in love with Ghiradelli milk chocolate carmel squares. Maybe I should start hinting for those instead!

I love flowers. Stargazer lilies are my favorite. They smell wonderful to me but I know a lot of people are allergic to them or it gives them a headache. I would never expect to receive them. I can dream, though!

I love flowers, but nothing excessive. A single flower will do. Calla Lilies are my favorite, but a single red rose is so romantic. If it is not a single flower, I would rather have them planted in a pot or outside, if it in season. That being said, flowers are not my favorite gifts. I like receiving experiences- concert, play, stand-up... something that we can enjoy together and of course make love afterward.

If I'm getting a plant I prefer that it is potted. I love plants.

I love flowers but would rather have a plant that is alive so that it lasts longer than a week!

I like to get flowers on occasion. Just something that is totally random and unnecessary for no other reason than to put a smile on my face. As a standard and obligatory gift for all holidays. Hell no, that has the exact opposite effect. It shows a lack of effort or willingness and possibly consideration to find a gift that is really for ME and not just for "a girl".

I don't like flowers at all. It just seems so wasteful to me since they die in a couple of days. I've been given leather roses before, I like those. I like that they are around for basically forever, and they are so pretty. In general, there's definitely other things I would prefer to receive. Candy, food, flowers - these things are things which I'd rather not get.

I tell my husband and every one, I'm not the type of girl you buy flowers for. Yes, it's a nice gesture, but if you want to get me flowers just get me a single rose and give me a gift card for the rest of the $100 you would have spent on the other 11 roses to make a dozen, lol. I'd rather get something that will last. Roses die too fast and I have a black thumb anyway, lol.

I have allergies.. But Im not allergic to flowers. I like flowers, just not the traditional roses. One time, he surprised me and got me orchids, another time sunflowers... I love it. As long as its not the traditional kind of flower, I am happy.

I love flowering plants that hang around for a few weeks or longer.

Not really unless they're still in a pot.

My partner gets me flowers pretty frequently (Almost once a month!) and does an excellent job of picking them out. Some are even organically grown, pretty cool! They make me sad when they start dying, though. I have tried preserving some, but I can't exactly have dead flowers everywhere. I could ask for more live ones, but I can't keep plants alive and I don't like asking for specific kinds of gifts. Cut flowers are convenient for my partner, something he very much likes to give, nice to have around. Though there are things I might like more, I am very grateful for these expressions of love.

He asked me what time I'd be home on Monday so I think there's a delivery in my future. It is a sweet gesture (and I hope there's some chocolates with it!)

I like flowers - but I hate red roses. send me white, or pink, or yellow. Hell, send me sunflowers, or lilacs, orchids. Just not red roses! They are so cliche and everyone "loves" them. I like to be different.
